Theo’s Octopus is a knitted plush toy with eight curling tentacles and embroidered face making it suitable for the little ones. The tentacles make it easy to grab for the baby’s little hands and cotton yarn means it can washed in 60 degrees C so you don’t need to worry about the baby spitting on it. The octopus is a quick and easy knit - I finished mine during three nap times - the perfect surprise for your little one when they wake up!

Suitable for beginners.

Skills needed: Stockinette stitch, knitting in a round, increasing and decreasing, picking up stitches.

The pattern includes instructions for the three-row curling i-cord.
