Yip Yip Knit

I totally winged it here. Tried casting on 30 stitches at first, but that was too many, so I started over, cast on 20. I think maybe 25 would have been better. Followed the proportions of the pattern, left 8 stitches for the face. Again, fewer than that, and no face to speak of.
Same eyes. Tentacles are braided.
I'd like to figure out a better/smoother way of doing the mouth/head portion. I'm wondering if this would work better knit from the top down?
Still, I think he's just as adorable as his crocheted friend.
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft Brites in Blue Mint
