The word Amigurumi comes from Japanese. The Japanese call handicrafts knitted with crochet and needle as Ami. The Japanese call the toys that are filled with objects such as fibers or cotton as Nuigurumi. The word Amigurumi is derived as a combination of these two words.

Todays daily new amigurumi free crochet pattern is octopus
I want to give you some informations about this pattern ;

This simple amigurumi octopus is quite quick to crochet. Make yours with a plain face, or add a little takochu mouth. They’re stackable too, so you can make a whole tower of octopi. 

Here’s the free pattern:

Skill level: easy-intermediate
You’ll need to know how to crochet in the round, and make single crochet and half-double crochet stitches. 

Size: 
Using medium (worsted) weight yarn and a 3.5 mm (E) crochet hook, your octopus will be about 4 cm / 1.6″ wide. You can adjust the size by using thicker or thinner yarn.

Materials & tools:
• medium (worsted) weight yarn
• 3.5 mm (E) crochet hook
• small amount of stuffing
• 5 mm or 6 mm black beads for eyes (or safety eyes)
• black thread for sewing
• yarn needle and sewing needle

Abbreviations:
ch = chain
st = stitch
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
sc2tog = single crochet 2 together
sl st = slip stitch

Pattern:
The octopus body is worked in the round. Do not join the rounds, except where specified in the pattern.

Body:
Start with a magic loop, or chain 2 and work in the first chain.

1. 6 sc in a circle.
2. 2 sc in each st around. (12 sc)
3. (sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) 6 times. (18 sc)
4. (sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next st) 6 times. (24 sc)
5-8. sc in each st around, for 4 rounds. (24 sc per round)
9. (sc2tog, sc in next st) 8 times. (16 sc)
Join round with a sl st.
10. Chain 1. Working in back loops only, (sc in next st, sc2tog, sc in next st) 4 times. (12 sc)
This creates a small ridge, that you’ll use later when adding the legs.
11. Skip the ch1 that you made at the beginning of the previous round.
(sc2tog) 6 times. (6 sc)

Finish off, leaving a tail for sewing. Stuff the octopus body, and sew up the hole.

Legs:
The octopus legs are made by crocheting into the row of 16 ridged stitches left on the body after round 10.

Holding the body with the top of the head facing downwards, join your yarn with a slip stitch. You can join in any one of the ridge stitches.

1. (5 hdc in next st, sl st in next st) 8 times. Join round with a sl st, and finish off.

You should have 8 little octopus legs now.

Takochu mouth (optional):
Start with a magic loop, or ch 2 and work in the first ch. 
1. 6 sc in a circle. Join with a sl st, and finish off.

Face:
For the plain face (purple octopus), sew the eyes onto your amigurumi’s head. The eyes should be between the 7th and 8th rounds of the body, and about 5 stitches apart. Embroider a small black mouth.

For the takochu face (blue octopus), first sew the mouth in place. It should be roughly in line with the 6th and 7th rounds of the body. Sew the eyes on either side of the mouth, between the 6th and 7th rounds of the body.

Takochu!
