Knitting: Tentacle Hat

This was an excellent bit of fun.  I saw this knitting pattern over at Violently Domestic and was inspired to play around.  I  halved the two sections of the pattern that make up most of the length so that they would be smaller and lighter.  I think that the result was cute and fun but they aren't holding their shape as well as I would have liked.  My next batch of tentacles will probably be on smaller needles and will have a bit of stuffing to help keep the shape.
