Kawaii Sorry Squid Applique

Sorry Squid Applique -- Free Amigurumi Pattern
Sorry Squid Applique -- Free Amigurumi Pattern

Part amigurumi, part applique, all adorable! This little guy I originally made to be used as an applique for a hat when I got into amigurumi 2 years ago, eventually became the inspiration for my Kawaii Kraken. He looks like he inked you in the face but he's sorry about it. Thus, Sorry Squid. I thought it was time to give this cephalopod a revisit. Enjoy this free pattern from Amigurumi Kawaii (designed by Koneko Kawaii), also available on Ravelry here.

This is a good time to attach the eyes on the lower half of the body/head.

R17 [Dec] x8 (8 St)

The Tentacles. Make 8.

Sl St into next ST, CH 21, Turn, SC in 2nd CH from Hook, 4 SC, 13 HDC, 2 DC. Insert hook into next ST with Sl St. Repeat these steps until you have 8 Tentacles. 

Weave in any ends, sew onto hat or accessory to make it a little more spiffy. Although I made the applique on this hat to look more like an octopus than a squid, you get the idea. I don't have a pattern written for the hat, unfortunately. Isn't the cutest?!
