The Knitting Octopus is a happy guy just check out his jaunty hat!

This pattern contains all the instructions you will need to make your own knitting octopus. It has a lot of parts and I don't recommend it for complete beginners. It uses knitting and crochet techniques.

Yarn
Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift, 2-ply 100% wool, 105m (115yards), 25g (0.88 oz) fingering weight.

These are the colours I used, you will only need a very small amount of each CC so
consider using a similar weight yarn if you don’t want to buy full balls of each colour.
