It’s The Dapper Octopus!
I’m amazed I haven’t posted him until now.  Dapper is a personal project of mine and will likely be the only octopus I make like this.  He has a top hat, monocle, and snooty mustachio.  He’s a vile villain.  Clearly.  You have to be with a mustache like that.
He’s the mascot for Registration at the Nova Albion Steampunk Exhibition.  He actually has a badge from this year’s Nova Albion along with a staff/volunteer crest.  Both are on his hat now.  I should probably decorate his hat up more before the next Nova Albion.  We’ll see.

caffeine-required-deactivated20 asked:

What crocheting hook do you recommend using?

I use a G (4.0 mm) hook.

caffeine-required-deactivated20 asked:

Do you have a pattern posted for your octopuses? I would love to learn how to make these.

Well, I use a modified version of this pattern.  Creamsicle is almost exactly that except I never used two strands of yarn for the tentacles.  I apparently missed that part.  XD

Have some twins!  They were crocheted in Westport (blue) and Rosewood (pink).
These were also custom made for a customer where I work.  They were going to a set of twins, so they got little bows.  I’ll forever love these twin octopi.

OH LOOK SOMETHING NEW.
This was a custom octopus made for a customer where I work.  She provided the red hat on this octopus. :3

bhdskbdsajdj Oh my goodness!

28 followers?!  Where did you all come from?!

Thank you all so much, new and old followers alike.  I’m so glad you enjoy these little crocheted octopi!  I should probably get to editing my newer photos then, shouldn’t I?

Either way around it, please ask me your questions!  They can be about the octopi, crocheting, or myself. :)
