    Manufacturing: 1. Wrap threads evenly on a piece of cardboard.To make the octopus fat, you need 100-130 turns of thread (depends on the thickness of the thread). When winding, lay the thread, not pulling, otherwise the cardboard will bend, and you will not get the desired length of the coil. Octopus from the thread for knitting

It should turn out to be practically round, so keep in mind that this lump will be its “wrong side” or middle evenly covered with threads again during the following steps. If you make it shorter, the octopus will look disproportionate, even as for a toy. If it turns out longer - the elongated head will not have stability, and the threads will sag, forming ugly loops.

Taking the uncut edge-lump in your hand, you need to turn it over and evenly distribute the threads in a circle so that they cover the base beautifully - like a wig is combed. It is convenient to perform this step by placing the workpiece on the table. 5. Now, having determined which head turned out and not turning over, we fasten it in the “neck” area with a thread of the same color as the whole hand-made article. Do not over tighten, otherwise the octopus will fall on its side. The diameter in this place can be 3.5-4 cm.

    6. The most interesting thing: we divide the threads into 8 even strands and weave braids-tentacles; we tie small bows on the tips. If this is a male octopus and bows you find inappropriate, you can simply cut the ribbons shorter and tie a modest knot. After the tentacles are done - the final touch: you need to carefully trim the threads on the tips of the braids with scissors.

    7. It remains to draw eyes and smile, cut and paste. Why use pencils, not pens? It is known that in contact with liquid glue, markers immediately leak. Quality pencils give bright, steady colors. Draw several variants and choose the most suitable one. You can tie a bow to the octopus-girl. An octopus-boy can make a hat.
