Free Crochet Pattern: Valentine Pink Octopus from The Legend of the Blue Sea푸른 바다의 전설

She pointed to the pink octopus in the claw machine. He fed a coin into the machine and watched her play. She was disappointed when she lost the grip on the octopus at the last second. He pointed out that almost getting it out isn’t the same as having it, and that life is full of things that might or might not happen. The deciding factor is whether she’ll give up on the octopus and let it stay in there forever.
