Opal the Medium Octopus

70.00

The octopus family is now complete! Opal is the Goldilocks of the group - not too big, not too small, but just right. 

She shares the same sleepy eyes and wonderfully squishable body as her brothers, and is equally at home perched on a sofa or at the head of a bed.  

Opal is knitted in the round with intarsia tentacles worked flat.

Octopuses (not octopi) are members of the cephalopod family. Opal's knitted cephalopod family includes Inkling the Squid and Horatio the Nautilus, also by Cate Carter-Evans.

Opal measures 24 in. / 60 cm in length, and has head diameter 5.5 in. / 14 cm.

The kit includes all the hand-painted merino wool yarn (Infinite Twist Helix) you'll need to complete the project - 130 grams in the main color, and 70 grams in the contrast color - plus 2 sets of bamboo double-pointed needles, plastic safety eyes, a yarn needle, markers, and 15 ft of roving to stuff Opal's tentacles (polyfill or other stuffing for Opal's head is not included).

If you select a custom color combination, please indicate a main color (MC) and contrast color (CC) when you checkout.

*Please note that Opal is for decorative purposes only and is not a toy. The plastic safety eyes used on this project are a choking hazard for small children.
