Hi Crochet Lovers, as promised. Today its my pleasure to introduce to you Mr Squidly’s cousin.

A baby Octopus crochet applique pattern called Mr Giggley because he swims kind of wiggley.  You are just going to fall in love with him because he is so easy to make even for beginner crochet and comes together in a splash.

You can whip him up in 15 minutes and he love to play all day.

Easy octopus for beginner pattern ever.

This cuteness over baby octopus crochet pattern is beginner friendly all you need is some basic crochet stitch like single and double crochet.

Make him some friends, or put a magnet on him and stick him to your refrigerator .

He would make a great friend for Mr Steve the Happy Whale, they play very well together – see Mr Steve’s pattern in our previous post.

Thanks for sharing this adorable pattern, and I know it’s been on a while since it was posted, but most of the written pattern has been obscured by ads which renders the instructions unreadable.
