We love our mascot Octo so much that we wanted you to be able to make your own!
Kat Dodd and MaryBrigid Turner led a successful workshop on the Saturday of Octocon 2021, showing how to use Kat’s very forgiving crochet pattern – they describe it as being like the pirate code, guidelines not rules. And if your Octo ends up with too many legs, why then it’s just a cute eldritch horror!
We’re delighted to share the pattern (as a PDF) for anyone who wants to try and make their own Octo!
If you share your Octos on social media, please hashtag them #Octocon so we can find them!
