It's an Octo-knitter! 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.
Your friends and family will undoubtedly be very impressed by your finished creation. Be prepared for adulation - and possibly a little envy too. (You deserve it!)
