Four original crochet amigurumi patterns: Octopus, Squid, Cuttlefish and Nautilus - the complete Baby Cephalopods collection by June Gilbank. These mini amigurumi take only 25-30m of yarn apiece, and work up quickly with minimal finishing, as they only have 2-3 pieces each!

Baby Octopus has long curling arms and a realistic body shape. 
Baby Squid has two long tentacles and swimming fins at the back. 
Baby Cuttlefish has an undulating fin all the way around its body. 
Baby Nautilus has a mass of tentacles and a shell with a hood. 

  • Octopuses are completely soft, with no bones or shell, so they can squeeze themselves through tiny gaps barely larger than their eye.
  • There are about 300 species of squid, ranging in size from a only few centimetres to over 10m long.
  • Cuttlefish squirt a brown ink called sepia - this is the source of the name of the colour sepia.
  • Nautiluses are ancient cephalopods known as 'living fossils' because they've remained virtually unchanged for 500 million years.

Yarn: worsted weight yarn (the pictured samples use Lion Brand Vanna's Choice yarn) 

Hook: US E / 3.5mm

Size: approx 5"-6.5" long

Eyes: 10-12mm (the pictured samples use 12mm eyes)
