Horatio the Nautilus

68.00

A unique pattern inspired by a fascinating creature, Horatio the Nautilus is the perfect project for the adventurous knitter. His striped shell, elegant tentacles, and protective hood offer a fun knitting challenge that yields a very special creation.

Horatio is worked in three parts – shell, tentacles, and hood. The shell is worked in garter stitch with wrap-and-turn short rows, the layers of tentacles are worked as i-cord from a flat base, and the hood is worked in stockinette stitch with twin-wrap (shadow wrap) short rows.

Nautiluses are members of the cephalopod family. Horatio’s knitted cephalopod family includes Opus, Opal and Opie the Octopuses, Inkling the Squid, and Tako the Bobtail Squid also by Cate Carter-Evans.

Horatio measures 16 in. / 40 cm in legth (including tentacles), 9 in. / 23 cm in height, and 5 in. / 13 cm in width.

Kit includes 250 grams of hand-dyed yarn, a circular needle, 2 sets of bamboo double-pointed needles, plastic safety eyes, a yarn needle, markers, and notions, and the printed pattern.

Please specify your color choices for the shell, shell stripes, and hood (the tentacles combine the hood and shell stripes colors) when you checkout.

As shown: Shell - Badlands, Shell Stripes - Shreveport, Hood - Red Devil.
