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:

Joining an open piece without filling to a closed piece:

It is about joining the ears to the head of our kitten.

On this occasion, the open piece, as it does not have fiberfill, is flat, which divides it into two parts, front and back.

Once the piece is placed in the correct place, for what you can use a measuring tape (photo 1) fix it with one or several pins (photo 2).

On one hand, sew it by taking a piece of fabric from the head and on the other, the full stitch of the ear. (photos 3 to 6)

Amigurumi Cat

By this way when you have a part sewed, move the ear to the other side and sew the other part as close as possible.

Crochet Cat

Finally, make a small knot and introduce the remaining thread to lose it inside the fabric and cut the rest. You should do this to finish the join of all the pieces of your amigurumis.

Sew Parts Amigurumi

You already have both ears of your kitten.

Sew Parts Amigurumi

Joining an open piece to a closed one:

We have done it with nose and tail.

To begin, hold the piece with pins in the desired place.

Crochet Kitten

Then, sew it taking a bit of the fabric of the closed piece, that is, the head and body of the kitten, to join it to each stitch of the open piece, point by point.

Sew Parts Amigurumi

In the case of the tail, having a twisted shape, you must pay special attention to take the fabric of the closed piece so that the open piece keeps its shape.

Amigurumi Cat Crochet

Joining two flat pieces:

We are going to sew two flat pieces, one on top of the other. It is about joining the stripes of the kitten to the head.

Amigurumi Kitten Pattern

You will do it in the same way: Take from the small piece the whole stitch and from the big piece a little fabric.

Sew Amigurumi

And so you have the kitten’s stripes:

Kitten Pattern

Joining of two open pieces:

It will be the case of the join of the head with the body.

It is something very simple, because the number of stitches of both pieces usually matches.

Proceed then to fix the head in its place and once well centered, sew the stitches one by one, that is, the point of the head with its corresponding point of the neck.

Before finishing, when you have left 3 or 4 stitches to finish the join, a little trick to achieve more firmness in the head of any of your amigurumis is to introduce a little more filling in that hole.

You will be surprised to see that you can still put plenty of stuffing in this area of the neck because when handling it while we sew, the fiberfill has moved up (head) or down (body), leaving the area of the neck weakened.

If the head of your amigurumi does not hold up anyway, try this.

Joining the ends of the same piece:

It involves sewing the collar over the kitten’s neck joining the ends.

In this case, we will sew the jingle bell on this joint so more than its appearance, what interests us is that it has a V shape.

To do this, sew zig-zag taking the stitch of one of the sides and going to the next stitch on the other side to complete the join.

Amigurumi Cat

Joining two closed pieces:

In our example, we are going to sew the jingle bell on the collar.

To do this, after holding it in place (photo 42) take some fabric from each part, moving around the jingle bell and trying to do it in a small radius so that it looks like it is hanging.

This is all!

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:

Download Butterfly free amigurumi pattern >>

1.- We begin by crocheting with one of the colors (pink) to then change to the second color (lilac), but instead of cutting the pink thread or leaving it outside the fabric, what we will do is incorporate it into it.

To do this, we keep it on the back and we crochet on it at the same time that we crochet on each stitch with the thread of the main color.

The new lilac stitches will remain on the pink thread that is hidden among them.

2.- We change again to the pink color that will become the main color in our fabric. We do it by incorporating it in the final step of a single crochet. To do this, we begin to crochet the single crochet with the lilac color and at the moment we have the 2 loops in the hook, we will introduce the pink color through them completing the single crochet.

3.- We already have the pink thread as the main one but we must keep the lilac color hidden, as we have done before and continue crocheting with the two threads.

As you can see, keeping the two strands in the fabric is very simple, avoids cuts and loose threads and in addition to providing a reverse of the piece without defects, it is also very useful when we have to make continuous color changes.

New ebook “Animagumis: 15 Patterns to crochet yarn animals” Now on Sale!


Finally it´s time to show you my new ebook and I assure you that the wait was worth it

Animagumis: 15 patterns to crochet yarn animals

I confess that it is the most important project that I have faced so far, not only because they are unpublished patterns, but because I wanted their design to be very special.

From the beginning I had the firm intention to correspond to the support that you and other colleagues give me, and what a better way than to follow many of the ideas and suggestions that you have given to me with so much affection.

Each little animal is designed so that you can separate it from the character it represents, that is, you can remove the clothes and accessories whenever you want. By this way you have 2 patterns in 1, the animal and the character.
