As I previously mentioned, my first amigurumi book was Amigurumi World: Super Cute Crochet. Before realizing I could find free patterns on great sites like Ravelry and Crochet Pattern Central, I used Amigurumi World for my first several amis. The octopus was one of the patterns that made me swoon, eventually leading to the purchase of the book. I couldn't believe how cute he was! This was my 3rd ami ever made, and I'm really proud of it. To this day, it holds up to my most recent ones. The hardest part was to fit all 8 legs and make them look good. I named him Razzy. :)
3.75 (F) hook
Red Heart Super Saver (body and legs-Lavender )

I worked on him from April 17-25.
