Galician Octopus Amigurumi Pattern

I like to think in Suenhos Blanditos as a great family that despite the distance, meets to enjoy a common passion: The amigurumis.

From several places and backgrounds, speaking different languages, men, women, young, old, each and every one of us are connected by those little yarn dolls that we like so much and to which we add a little bit of us.

Today I want to show you a little bit of me and tell you about a celebration of my land, Galicia.

It’s about the Day of the Galician Letters (Día das Letras Galegas) that is celebrated every year on May 17th, to commemorate the edition of “Cantares Gallegos” by Rosalía de Castro that same day of 1863 and that marked the beginning of the “Rexurdimento” or the Galician cultural renaissance.

Every year, the Galician Royal Academy chooses an outstanding personality from the Galician literary and cultural field to pay tribute to him or her for the contribution and defense of our language.

This year, the day of the Galician Letters is dedicated to Antonio Fraguas, an intellectual born in Pontevedra whose cultural contribution included archeology, geography, history, art, ethnography and dissemination.

As a detail, to remind you of my beautiful land, Galicia, I want to give you the pattern of this cute octopus, which besides being a representative icon of our gastronomy, is crocheted with the colors of our flag: sky blue and white.

I hope you like it!

How to sew the different parts of our Amigurumi + Kitten Pattern

We are going to deal with one of the issues that most concern the amigurumis crocheters, especially if they are starting:

How to sew the different parts of our amigurumi?

This question is important, because although you crochet each part very well, if when assembling the joint is not correct, it will not only affect the appearance of your creation, but you run the risk of detaching the pieces, with the problems that this can cause.

In order to sew the parts of an amigurumi you will need:

  • The different pieces previously crocheted in which, to facilitate the join, you will have left a thread at the end of the fabric. The length of this thread will depend on the size of the piece you have to sew. More it is better than less and it will be the experience that will allow you to adjust the lenght.
  • Wool or yarn of the right color in relation to the part you have to sew. You will need it in case you have not left a thread or that it isn’t enough to complete the joint of the piece.
  • Yarn Needle, that is, a needle suitable for sewing the wool or yarn that we use to crochet our amigurumis. You can find them in different materials, sizes and thicknesses. I usually use metal about 8 cm long.
  • Tape measure to place the pieces in the right place, especially if the exact measurements are specified in the pattern.
  • Pins to secure each piece in place and prevent them from moving while you sew them.
  • The diversity of the pieces and their placement force us to join them in different ways. Let’s see some examples applied to our amigurumi kitten:

Little Lulu Amigurumi Videotutorial, by Demetra Bogri

Hello!

Today I want to talk to you about something that has happened to me a few days ago and that has made me very excited:

The first videotutorial of one of my amigurumis!: Little Lulú Amigurumi Pattern!

But no, I didn’t make it, but Demetra Bogri, the magnificent weaver of 4elli.com, and everything was the result of chance … A bad translation of my pattern of Son Goku on the blog forced her to contact with me and talking, talking, she proposed to do the videotutorial of one of my patterns.

I could’nt believe it!!! Of course, I love the idea! So we started the collaboration.

Practice the Reversible Color Change by Crocheting this nice Butterfly

Sometimes we find the difficulty of crocheting a flat piece that has successive color changes having the need that the transition between colors will be good on both sides, by the right and also by the reverse that will remain visible.

Color Changes

To achieve that the changes of color do not alter the reverse of our fabric keeping the same drawing as the right, what we do is crochet with the two threads, one main and another hidden, so that we can alternate between them without affecting the design.

Let’s see how to do it in our case:
