Introduction: White Squid

This is what my daughter did during the pandemic time off-school.

You need a crotchet and some white yarn.

Then, you just need some imagination.

This time, it was an idea of making a squid.

She didn't calculate anything, just was crotcheting until she finished it.

Step 1: Body

Make a round beginning with a crotchet and continue making the body of a squid.

Single crotchets are recommended.

MR- magic ring

X - single crochet

Y - single crochet increase

A - single crochet decrease

Step 2: Adding Legs, Frill and Eyes

Then, add more single crotchets to make a frill.

Stuff it with some sotton wool and close under the frill. Add some legs.

Add 2 beads as eyes.

And it's ready.

Step 3: Sweet Squid

Place the squid on your shelf.

Isn't it sweet and pretty?
