Felted purse in the form of an octopus. The head forms the actual purse, the tentacles are used as handles. The arms can be knitted in the round or, for a two-coloured version of the tentacles, in short rows.

Additional Yarn Information

  • the shown model was knitted in Schoppel Wolle Samos, which is a pretty fine chenille yarn (130 yards per 50g) that felts very strongly. It has to be knitted very loosely, hence the quite high amount of yardage.
  • The pattern can be knitted in any feltable yarn resulting in different sizes and tentacle lenghts.
