Octopus ami

I seem to be on an amigurumi posting roll, so thought I'd post the amigurumi octopus which prompted me to learn how to crochet.  The legs on mine seem more flimsy than the original inspiration, but as far as I'm concerned he still ticks lots of small/cute boxes.  As you can see, he's a key ring, and apparently (he was made for a friend) he swings happily from the car ignition.

One thing which I like about crocheting amigurumi is that they largely use one stitch (double crochet in the UK, called single crochet in the US) and so, once you can cast on a circle (fab tutorial here), increase and decrease you're pretty well sorted.
