Blub…blub…Meow? Jules Verne himself couldn’t have dreamed up such a fanciful creature. Half feline, half cephalopod—part creature of the Abyssal Plain, and part Abyssinian. Octopuss is an adorable toy that is sure to delight anyone. Make it for a gift in the recipient’s favorite colors, or in effigy of your own kitty (or your own octopus, if you have one). The secret to a well-made toy? Knitting to a dense gauge and stuffing it really well. As a bonus, this is a super-quick knit, easily finished in an evening or two—just in time for a last minute gift!
