Rnd 2: inc, 7 sc, [inc] x 3, 7 sc, [inc] x 2 (26)
Rnd 3: 1 sc, inc, 7 sc, [1 sc, inc] x 3, 7 sc, [1 sc, inc] x 2 (32)

Rnd 2: [inc] x 6 (12)
Rnd 3-25: 12 sc — 23 rounds (12)
Stuff with filling up to round 20.
Put the stitches together and crochet 6 sc across the stitches. See above.

Body and Head

Start with black yarn.

Rnd 36: [1 sc, dec] x 8 (16)

Fasten off and leave a yarn tail. Weave the yarn tail through the front loops of each stitch and pull it tight to close. Then weave in the yarn ends.

Edge

Hold the octopus upside down. Insert the hook (see picture below) on the last front loop of round 11 and make a slip knot and a slst.
Now work all stitches on the front loops of round 11.
Rnd 1: [Skip the next 2 st, make 5 dc in the third st, skip the next 2 st, make a slst in the third st], repeat between the brackets 8 more times — you should have total 9 shells. (54)
Make a slst on the first slst. Fasten off and weave in the yarn tails.

Strap

Hold the doll with the eyes facing you. 2 stitches from the last round you will now insert the hook. Take the yarn, make a slip knot and crochet 1 sc in same place. Continue and crochet 4 sc to the left. Then, make 1 chain.
Turn the piece around and continue crochet on the other side. You will now work in rows. (You can crochet as many rows you want.)
Row 1-15: 5 sc, 1 ch, turn — 15 rows (5)
Fasten off and leave a long tail to sew the ring to the strap.

Weave in the yarn tail from the first slip knot.
Take a wooden ring or stroller ring/ hook, and wrap the strap around it. Sew the strap together tightly and weave in the yarn.
