There's only one awkward (not tricky or hard - it really is just awkward) moment in the whole project and it doesn't last long. Some of the test knitters even worked two tentacles at a time. I didn't because that kind of thing Confuses me, but it has been done!

If you intend to knit this for a baby or a small child, don't make the tentacles any longer th
