Octopus embroidery kit
This Industrious Octopus puts us all to shame by how quickly they can knit up a knit. If only I had 8 arms, think of the stitching I could get done! Perfect for beginners, this kit includes all the threads, instructions and fabric to create a funky embroidered picture.
It's an Octo-knitter! Designed by request (multiple requests!), this multi-armed octopus is the envy of every knitter. Plus, it's an octopus - which is already pretty amazing! Created using only basic stitches, this pattern is great for ambitious beginners (you can do it!). Made mostly using single stitches and the backstitch (easy peasy!), its suckers are made using a detached chain (link) and a few French knots are added for added effect. The "knit" pattern is made using a simple backstitch with chain stitches added on top.
