About The Baby Fisherman’s Cap Knitting Pattern
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 my cephalopod collection, and a great place to start your creature knitting. 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.
Octopuses (not octopi) are members of the cephalopod family. Opie's knitted cephalopod family includes Opus and Opal the Octopuses, Inkling the Squid, and Horatio the Nautilus.
