Squid Knitting Patterns
Cephalopod Knitting Patterns
I performed a search for free octopus knitting patterns before I had even joined Squidoo. It only seems appropriate that I dedicate a lens to these cephalopod knitting patterns now that I have designed a Squidoo Squid Knitting Pattern!
So what kinds of squid and octopus knitting patterns did I find? These range from toys to hats, iPod cozies to charts and many more.
Toy Octopus Knitting Patterns
- Ollie the Octopus - This creature has a mushroom shaped head. The arms are knit and stuffed, so they are stiffer and curled up.
- Octopus - The head is stuffed, and the tenticals don't appear to be, making them a little curly. Button eyes finish him off. You will need to create a free Ravelry account to view this pattern.
- Socktopus - A stashbuster knitting project where each of the 8 legs of this toy Octopus are made out of different sock yarns (giving him "socks")
- Octopus Garden - The head is shaped like a turnip. There is a loop on top so you can hang the toy up in your home.
- Octopus Redux - This is a slight variation of Octopus Garden.
