I'll definitely have to check out this book! There's just something about knitted sea creatures...

Oh my, are those legs closed with kitchener stitch all the way up the side?  I am both impressed and intimidated by invisible joins like that; great work!

Actually, I've made this pattern too; they're just bound of normally and normally stiched together. The snail pattern uses kitchener stich a lot, though.

Your Paul looks great! Well done Smiley

You'd be amazed at the amount of people who called my last Squidalicious (also a pattern by Hansi Singh, bought at her old etsy shop) Paul the Octopus. To the point I stopped protesting that it was a squid altogether Tongue

I was thinking of trying the Loch Ness Monster next, too Cheesy

@Ptraci, I guess people just don't know their cephalopods.  Smiley

Good luck making the Loch Ness Monster! I still haven't got round to it.  Smiley
