I had a ball of hand-dyed wool languishing in my stash that turned into this little guy over the course of a few evenings. I couldn't find a pattern that gave a realistic enough result, so I just made it up as I went along, working off of my sketches and some photographs. His eyes are needle-felted, so he's really soft and cuddly. Now, he just needs a name.

Edit: He has a name! Waterbaby (of hit upon a great one. The octopus shall be known as Jacques!


  1. I love this! Would you ever consider making one and selling it to me? Or trade for something knit? I can send you the yarn even.....

  2. I would definitely be open to selling you one! I actually have the yarn on hand (if wool is acceptable), I would just need to know approximately what colors you would want it to be - I say approximate because dyeing can be kind of random. I do all of my business through My store's address is Please make custom requests there. I am currently not participating in swaps.
