Squid Knitting Patterns

Updated on December 30, 2013

Cephalopod Knitting Patterns

I performed a search for free octopus knitting patterns before I had even joined Squidoo. It only seems appropriate that I dedicate a lens to these cephalopod knitting patterns now that I have designed a Squidoo Squid Knitting Pattern!

So what kinds of squid and octopus knitting patterns did I find? These range from toys to hats, iPod cozies to charts and many more.

Toy Octopus Knitting Patterns

  • Ollie the Octopus - This creature has a mushroom shaped head. The arms are knit and stuffed, so they are stiffer and curled up.
  • Octopus - The head is stuffed, and the tenticals don't appear to be, making them a little curly. Button eyes finish him off. You will need to create a free Ravelry account to view this pattern.
  • Socktopus - A stashbuster knitting project where each of the 8 legs of this toy Octopus are made out of different sock yarns (giving him "socks")

  • Octopus Garden - The head is shaped like a turnip. There is a loop on top so you can hang the toy up in your home.

  • Octopus Redux - This is a slight variation of Octopus Garden.
  • Jolly Octopus - The legs are short in proportion to the body. Cute and looks like a fast knit.
  • Aristotle the Octopus - Knit flat and then seamed.
  • George - A felted stuffed octopus knitting pattern.

  • Le Octopus! - The legs are short in relation to the body.

  • Orla the Octopus - You will need to create a free Ravelry account to view this pattern.
  • "Henry" the Octopus - You will need to create a free Ravelry account to view this pattern.
  • Squiggly Octopus - Simple with icord legs and a round head.
  • Phat Pacific Octopus - A teeny tiny knit octopus

  • Little Octopus - This little octopus is smiling!

  • Rastapus - Octopus with attitude - Complete with dreadlocks!

  • Pieruvre - The pattern is written in french, but I don't think it should be too hard to figure out how to make him.

  • Socktopus - Very cute!

Squid Knitting Patterns

  • Squidoo Squid Plushie- The Squidoo Squid designed by ChemKnits.
