It's an Octo-knitter! Designed by request (multiple requests!), this multi-armed octopus is the envy of every knitter. Created using only basic stitches, this pattern is great for ambitious beginners. 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.
