The Knitting Octopus
Digital items are not included in shipping calculations (see our delivery page for more info). Digital Patterns are available immediately after purchase.
This pattern contains all the instructions you will need to make your own knitting octopus. It has a lot of parts and I don't recommend it for complete beginners. It uses knitting and crochet techniques.
Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift, 2-ply 100% wool, 105m (115yards), 25g (0.88 oz) fingering weight.
These are the colours I used, you will only need a very small amount of each CC so
consider using a similar weight yarn if you don’t want to buy full balls of each colour.
