Moody Octopus

  I first got the idea for a moody octopus from one of my good friends. She purchased several of them, and sent me pictures of all of them. I thought they were the cutest thing and wanted one for myself. I was all ready to ask her where she buys them when I realized I could just knit one for myself. I had seen many crocheted mood octopi, but I couldn't find any knit patterns. It didn't appear to be a hard shape, so I decided I would just figure it out as I go. I knew I wanted to use colors that I already had in my stash (because why not bust the stash while I'm at it). Most of my yarn is worsted weight acrylic yarn, so that made deciding on size and material super easy. I'm not sure what brand of yarn it was as this particular yarn was actually gifted to me from a friend whose grandmother no longer knits. I ended up making two prototypes and found that stiffer yarn provides more structural support. This was also a fun little knitting adventure as it was my first time us
