Anyone ever heard of Takochu's before?
Takochu's are a small Japanese toy that resemble octopus's, except these are very loving as they are ready with a kiss!
Tako = octopus & chu = kiss in Japanese
I saw some pics online of amigurumi takochu's and knew I had to make some of my own! I found a couple of patterns online but in the end, I made my own version. BerrySprite has a lovely amigurumi blog and she shares a tutorial with her pattern and it's the best one out there!
Takochu's are tiny but are quick to whip up!
I can finish one in about 30 minutes or so.
They are also a great starting place for beginners!
