From the Pattern description:

“These beautiful beach finds are egg cases of octopuses of the genus Argonauta. This nifty knit version is a quick project, perfect for those knitters (myself, included) who enjoy occasional instant gratification! For the experts out there, spice up the pattern a bit by experimenting with stripes, dots, and simple stranded color schemes.”

Needles and Gauge
The pattern doesn’t specify needle size or gauge but recommends that you use two 16” or 24” circular needles in a size that generates a tight knit.

Additional Materials

  • tapestry needle
  • Fiberfill stuffing
