Hook, Line & Tinker - Industrious Octopus Complete Embroidery Kit
NOW IN STOCK!
Hook, Line & Tinker launched in October 2017 with a line of modern embroidery patterns and kits using Laurie Dolhan's original illustrations. Her business is a reflection of her values - care for people, respect for the environment, and a deep desire to create something meaningful and real through a shared act of making.
It's an Octo-knitter! Designed by request (multiple requests!), this multi-armed octopus is the envy of every knitter. Plus, it's an octopus - which is already pretty amazing! Created using only basic stitches, this pattern is great for ambitious beginners (you can do it!). Made mostly using single stitches and the backstitch (easy peasy!), its suckers are made using a detached chain (link) and a few French knots are added for added effect. The "knit" pattern is made using a simple backstitch with chain stitches added on top.
Level 3: Ambitious Beginner Friendly
