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.

This is just way too cool!  I think I'm going to have to order the book for this one, my mom adores octopi and she would love this guy! Thanks for sharing! Grin

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
