Crochet: Squittles and a Headband




I made a new style of squids for the Etsy shop: Squittle! I usually stick with making large octopuses but wanted a longer head/body version. I'm also in the process of making slightly smaller versions of these. I used tiny beads for the eyes since I didn't have leftover safety eyes.




My favorite brands to use are Vanna's Choice, Lion Brand, and Loops & Threads! Unfortunately, there are not enough colors for that last one. If you work with yarn, can you recommend another brand that has a decent variety of colors? I'm thinking more on the lighter/pastel side.

Isn't it obvious that greens, blues, and purples are my favorite colors to work with?




Here is another headband that I made. I wanted to make a bow headband by using one piece. I thought it would look cuter with two colors. Edit: I've shared the pattern here.
