I wanted to make a present for my cousin’s baby, James, and my friend pointed me to the socktpus pattern at knitty.com:
I thought this was such a cool project and as my cousin once wrote a screenplay about undersea life I thought she would enjoy it! This was not an easy project with fair amounts of swearing involved, but it came out so cute! I don’t think the socktopuses legs will hold up for long against a one year-old, but we shall see. Oh, and since little James lives in Berlin maybe he should call this guy Sockenkrake. Although I think we can all agree that octopus is a much better word than krake.
