A cute, non-threatening childrens and baby toy! Soft and cuddly. Children love to dangle the legs of this toy! This is cute to place on beds of childrens rooms. Very easy pattern, with unique but simple pattern stitch for tenacle legs. You can knit this toy up in no time, so that means you will be able to knit up many of them! Uses worsted weight yarns, knitting needles, US # 10. Embroider a lazy smile on the octopus head as we did, or create your own face! Finished size is about 13 inches tall, from top of head to bottom of legs.
