Inkling the Squid Knitting Pattern

Looking for a great beach knitting project? Look no further!

Inkling is a fun and fanciful cephalopod with loads of personality and charm. He looks great as a sofa accent or keeping a watchful eye on things from a bookshelf.

Inkling is worked from the fin to the tentacles in four parts: mantle, head with eight short tentacles, and two long feeding tentacles. The mantle and head sections are both started by working in the round and are then worked flat. The short tentacles are worked in two-color intarsia, and the long tentacles are worked as i-cord, with the ends worked flat and augmented with contrast-color sucker pads.

Important note: Inkling is for decorative purposes only. This item is not a toy, and the design does not meet any safety standards for toys. The kit and pattern are sold on an “as is” basis, therefore the risk of the quality and performance of the design is with the buyer.
