Pattern Notes:
This is a fun and addicting pattern! It begins with a magic ring, and you increase in the round to create the main body. Then the ruffly tentacles are added by doing a row of back loop only and then working into the front loop left behind. Then we use invisible decreases, add safety eyes, fill with stuffing, decrease to close up the bottom and add a little embroidered smile – feel free to add different facial expressions and get creative with eyebrows if you’d like!
