Plush Octopus FULL PATTERN

I made this octopus for my sister last Valentines Day and received two delicious tacos from her. (An original idea that I frankly wish I had thought of. I love tacos) My sister and I have an accidental tradition of exchanging mismatched gifts. A few years ago she gave me hand-knit bedroom slippers shaped like ballet shoes in a decorative box I’m pretty sure she made, and I gave her a card.
