Opus the Octopus
Opus the Octopus
Who doesn’t need a life-sized, squishy, tentacled companion?
With his sleepy eyes and wonderfully squishable body, Opus the Octopus is equally at home perched on a sofa or at the head of a bed.
Opus is knitted in the round with intarsia tentacles worked flat.
Octopuses (not octopi) are members of the cephalopod family. Horatio’s knitted cephalopod family includes Inkling the Squid and Horatio the Nautilus, also by Cate Carter-Evans.
Opus measures 36 in. / 92 cm in length, and head diamtere 8.5 in. / 21 cm.
Kit includes all the hand-painted merino wool yarn (Infinite Twist Helix) you'll need to complete the project - 335 grams in the main color, and 200 grams in the contrast color - plus needles and notions, including a circular needle, 2 sets of bamboo double-pointed needles, plastic safety eyes, a yarn needle, markers, and notions, and 36 ft / 330 grams of roving to stuff Opus' tentacles (polyfill or other stuffing for Opus' head is not included).
Please select a main color (MC) and contrast color (CC) from the Helix Color Card when you checkout
Please allow up to two weeks for your yarn to be dyed, and 7 - 10 days for shipping.
If you’d like to choose your own color combination, choose the "Custom Combination” option for color, and leave me a note when you check out with your choices for the body and the underbelly. Thanks!
