I made this little guy today for a last minute stocking stuffer for my bf's nephew. I really like him and had fun with him before I had to stuff him away in a stocking.

Yes, i-cords of different thickness and lengths but it's kind of hard to tell in the picture. After I attached the tentacles I left some pieces of yarn just hanging at varying lengths as well.

Absolutely an adorable little guy! Love the crazy cross eyes, too. Gives him humorous character! Great job!

Funny he has become very popular. I now have 4 requests in for this. I think I have found a new love...knitting toys/amigurumi. I find this so rewarding because it's quick, super fun, and I can add my own personal touches and everyone loves them, even if they aren't perfect.
