I'm pretty new to crochet but I really like how this turned out. I used Bernat softee chunkee yarn, which threw things off a bit, but it still turned out well. The eyes were the hardest part for me, but I muddled through. Thanks for the amazing pattern!

I made this in a week. And it’s amazing. Absolutely love it! I will me making another in the future, but I will use a smaller hook as my hat/head portion came out a little large (maybe my head is smaller). The suckers/tentacles are the most time consuming. But bringing them together was the utmost satisfying part of it. The eyes for me were tricky bc of placement on hat I put them too close to each other but it works.

I haven't even begun to make it yet and just the mere announcement yielded 2 orders already! I've very excited. I had done one on my own freehand, but I wanted to gain insight from a fellow crocheter. I love the work!

At first I was having some difficulty understanding the instructions of the pattern (I simply think this is because I’m not super experienced with crochet) but the pictures and pattern instructions proceeding helped it make sense. Even when I messed up I could tell by the way everything was meant to come together that it was off before I went to far to want to go back. The outcome is very rewarding and once everything is together it looks great. For someone like me who is intermediate and crochets a little every other day this took me a few months. The tentacles took about 80% of that time. Also the pattern was accurate at the amount of yarn you will need. I made a little poly fill pillow, that I can remove, to put in the squishy part because I don’t like the sound of plastic bags near my head.
