İf you make this toy to help comfort prematüre babies I recomend to use cotton sock for stuffing.
This will definitely keep the stuffing inside preventing children from pulling it out since they love to poke and pull at their toys. İnsert a piece of stocking that is big enough to be stretched to fill what your completed project will approximately be. When you are nearly closed, cut off the excess stocking and sew it closed with a sewing needle and thread.




Now put the bottom circle on to the body
 hook through both parts as seen below. Yarn over, pull through.




Now, start to make tentacles.

For that make a chain, 50 chain stitches, then


into 2nd stitch from the hook make 1 Inc - 2 single crochet into one, repeat the same all along, you´ll have the curly look


then make 2 sc throught head and bottom.  





Repeat 7 times more. ( start to make another tentacle, again 50 chain stitches and  again 2 sc throught head and bottom…) 


There will be 8 tentacles.




Eyes (make2 pieces)


Use white colored yarn.
Rnd1: Make a ring with 6 sc
Rnd 2: [inc]  6times                                (12 sts)
Stitch the eyelashes on with a tapestry needle and black yarn.


Sew eyes to the head.
