I seem to have a bit of a thing for knitting octopuses at the minute. (2 here and 1 here!) I’m not sure why because I always get bored of the tentacles after I’ve done two or three. So I decided to make one that’s good at knitting in the hope that it’ll do some for me. This one is already much better at colourwork than I am!
When I made this I started with a couple of sketches so I thought I’d share them with some pictures of the making process too. You might notice the cunning use of an interchangeable knitting needle to fill the tentacles with stuffing.
Now available as a greeting card from my shop for £2.50.
