July Pinterest Challenge by the Pin chicks


Sometimes you see something and you really want to make it,   but its in crochet or something you cant do,  Well thats what happen with this months Pinterest items,  It was in crochet and I cant crochet well all I can do is a chain,
So what do you do next..................
In my case find a knitting pattern that might do the same job and with a little help from The Hive (my local wool shop) Daisy found a pattern for a Sea Nettle,   which I have adapted into the Octopus,   Actually it was easy to make and I did enjoy this months pin.  The wool was from stash and I don't know the make but it is shades of blue with multi colour bits every so often.  The pattern I used is by hansigurumi called Juvenile Sea Nettle.  When I make another one I am going to make the arms the same length as it is they were different lengths.
So there you have it one Octopus similar to the one on Pinterest.
Do pop over and see the other ladies creations,
Link to theirs blogs.  Suzanne,   Muskaan,  Carollyn,  Margaret 2  Two Shuttles has not done anything for the last two months so I have not included a link
Hope you have a lovely weekend

  5. I love your ingenuity, too. You've created an adorable octopus.

  6. Oh, this is so cute !!!! My niece went through an octopus phase when she was around 5 years old & I created & knit it for her pullover. But you converted crochet sea nettle into a 3D octopus with knitting - great work & talent !

  7. I love this sweety octopus so very cute and to think that is knitting wow you can knit anything really :)

  8. Clever of you to use knitting instead of crochet to create the effect you wanted!
