This octopus is super cute and easy to make. It does take quite a bit of time and the construction of all the pieces is a little tedious but in the end, you get the most adorable little sea creature!

The Mini Sunflower Turtle pattern is an easy pattern to follow that requires very minimal sewing. It is perfect for batch-making for market prep, and is so customizable! You can make these cuties in a variety of color combinations, sizes, and fibers to have a whole collection! If you like sunflowers, turtles, or both, I highly suggest you try out this adorable pattern!
This is a very simple pattern to follow and to stitch up. There’s not any complicated shaping or fancy textures on this, the designer lets the simple stitch provide a gorgeous comfy fit and gives the yarn the chance to show off. This top is also very comfortable, and this stitch has a fun sensory texture that I enjoyed running my fingers across while wearing the top (that’s not too weird to do at your desk at work, right?) I wholeheartedly recommend this pattern.
The Ollie the Mini Octopus pattern works up super quickly and makes an adorable little, squishy octopus. Made in super chunky yarn, it makes a great little toy or pocket pal, but it can also double as a perfect keychain in any weight yarn. I have a feeling these little guys are going to be a huge hit at my next market, so if you need me in the next week or two, I’ll be making more mini octopi!
This scrunchie was so fast and easy to make! The pattern is well written, and it even includes a link to the video for it. I want to make a bunch in all kinds of colors! I think they would make great little gifts (or stocking stuffers for the upcoming Christmas season!) or even a way to customize matching your hairpieces to an outfit. Scrunchies have definitely made a comeback so don’t fight it and whip up a few of these yourself!
I really strongly recommend this pattern and I hope you try it out yourself! It’s simple enough for relative beginners, if you’re willing to try a few times to get sections like the teeth or the toes correct. These can be as simple or as complex as you like, it’s up to your imagination! Give them as gifts, bring them to craft fairs, or just make one for your desk in your favorite colors. I’m so happy I tried it and I want everyone to have one.
Animal Amigurumi Adventures Volume II features 15 super adorable amigurumi patterns with super clear and precise directions! Like all of Lauren Espy’s patterns, they are well-written with all the best details and clear photos. It was so difficult to choose which animal to make first, that I already made almost half of the animals in this book! I highly recommend you check out this adorable amigurumi book and get making right away!
I really enjoyed this pattern. It’s nice to find a free pattern for something small and quick, and end up with a highly useful (and cute!) item in the end. I love how my color-blocking came out, and I definitely recommend this pattern if you’re wanting to use up some stash cotton or even buy something new.
The pattern for Terry the Terrific Traffic Cone is no-sew and easy to follow. It works up quickly with well-written directions and pictures included throughout the pattern. The pattern includes two color variations and can be adapted to different weights of yarn. I love how easy this pattern is to work up, and I’m making a bunch to take along to my next market!
The Mabel Chicken pattern is fun, fast and as cute as they come! This is one of my top favorite patterns. I love how quickly and easily it works up and using bulky yarn leaves you with a snuggly little chicken!
