Smaller Liver Spot Lloyd

This is a pattern I made while making an octopus for my mom. I was short on yarn, money and time, so I decided to make a smaller version of my Liver Spot Lloyd pattern. I wasn’t able to take any particularly great photos before shipping this little guy off to my mom. anyway,  Here it is!

To place the eye whites you will follow the same rules as the Liver Spot Lloyd Pattern. I’ll just copy and paste them here so that you don’t have to be jumping back and forth between patterns:

At this point you will notice that there is a gap in the eye where you made the 4 chains. This is where you place the eye whites. You can stitch them in or use a glue gun. Either way is fine, as long as you stitch them in from inside of the Eye Socket.

When I was about to make the eye whites, I realized I had run out of white felt, so I used one of Aaron’s white shirts. I made a Thin rectangle out of black felt as the pupil.The white doesn’t have to be a perfect circle, just the right size to cover the whole gap left in the Eye socket. This is how mine looked:

Eye Socket

Suction cups:

Make 24: Three under each arm

Round 1: 6 sc into magic ring (6)

Round 2: sc around (6)

F/O Weave in ends

(Yes that’s all it is. Remember to curl up the edges so that they form little cups.)

Now, to assemble this little guy, you’ll follow the assembly rules for Liver Spot Lloyd. I was unable to take pictures of each part of the assembly for this one so please refer to the assembly pictures of my Liver Spot Lloyd Pattern by clicking HERE.

Assembly of the arms to everything else is tough to explain. You will sew 3 stitches of the arm to 3 stitches of the head. Do this with each arm. After you’ve done this, you will need to sew 3 stitches of each arm to 3 stitches of the arm next to it. After you’ve done this, you will sew the remaining stitches on each arm to the 24 sts of the “Bottom of Head” piece.
