A stuffed octopus has a distinct appeal: eight embracing arms! With such magnanimity, the Purl Bee’s alpaca Knit Octopus makes a pretty sweet companion! Each of these kits includes what you’ll need to make your own: 6 skeins of Blue Sky Sport Weight Alpaca (in Callalily or Natural White); a 2-yard piece of Blue Sky Sport Weight Alpaca in Light Gray (for the eyes); and a 12-ounce bag of poly stuffing.
