Who doesn’t need a pint-sized squishy, tentacled companion? Or better yet, an entire family of octopus friends?
Opie is the smallest member of the cephalopod collection, and a great place to start your creature knitting career. Opie’s best features include his sleepy eyes and wonderfully squishable body. Opie is 15 inches / 38 cm in length, and worked in the round with intarsia tentacles worked flat. Opus measures 15 in. / 38 cm in length, and head diameter 4 in. / 10 cm.
Kit includes 250 y of Infinite Twist Helix for Opie's body, plus 150 yards of Helix in a contrasting color for the underside of the tentacles and the eyelids. The yarn for this project is held double, and your yarn comes doubled, caked, and ready to cast on.
You’ll also get specialty cat-pupil safety eyes, a yarn needle, markers, and wool roving for stuffing.
