Horatio the Nautilus

65.00

A unique pattern inspired by a fascinating creature, Horatio the Nautilus is the perfect project for the adventurous knitter. 

Remarkably life-like with his striped shell, elegant tentacles, and protective hood, Horatio’s construction offers a fun knitting challenge that yields a very special creation.

Horatio is worked in five parts. He has three layers of tentacles which are worked as i-cord from a flat base. His hood is worked in stockinette stitch with twin wrap short rows, and his shell is worked in garter stitch with wrap-and-turn short rows.

Nautiluses are members of the cephalopod family. Horatio’s knitted cephalopod family includes Inkling the Squid and Opus the Octopus, also by Cate Carter-Evans.

Horatio measures 16 in. / 40 cm in legth (including tentacles), 9 in. / 23 cm in height, and 5 in. / 13 cm in width.

Kit includes 250 grams of hand-dyed yarn, a circular needle, 2 sets of bamboo double-pointed needles, plastic safety eyes, a yarn needle, markers, and notions, and the printed pattern.

Please specify your color choices for the shell, stripes, and hood when you checkout. The Helix color card is here.

As shown: Shell - Badlands, Stripes - Shreveport, Hood - Red Devil.
