Crafty Intentions CROCHET PATTERN Squid (printable PDF-file / 52 pages)

Developed by Megan Lapp aka Crafty Intentions, this pattern is for a Squid! This pattern is written in U.S. terminology.

These Squid come with many different options!! You can make the head with 3 distinctly different Fin options, and you can make the tentacles in a simple way or a more complex way with suckers! The effect is amigurumi-like, though there are some distinct techniques used that are not used in single crochet-only amigurumi. The gauge is not crucial to the pattern as long as the stitches are tight enough to hold stuffing.

This pattern is 52 pages long. The last 11 pages of the PDF are a text-only printer-friendly version of the pattern. To conserve on printer ink, you can selectively print these pages. However, I strongly recommend you still refer to the photographic illustrations throughout the pattern if you have any questions.

This pattern is available in English, Spanish, German, and French.
