Theo's Octopus Pattern.

It's been a while since the last time I published a pattern, but here we go! It's a small knitted toy I made for Theo, and I think it turned out really cute so I wrote down the pattern so you guys can also make your own octopus!

I knitted the octopus with cotton yarn so it doesn't matter if Theo sucks it or spits on it - it can easily be washed in 60 degrees C. I filled the head with some polyester filling and added small pieces of cellophane so that it will make a slight rustling sound when Theo touches it - that's something he really likes.

Theo's Octopus pattern is now on Ravelry so go on and grab yours! Here's the LINK TO THE PATTERN! The pattern includes instructions for making curling i-cords. 


  1. Even though I have no littles to knit for, I am here to recognize your generosity in offering this adorable octopus pattern for free!! I also wanted to mention to you that I knit my third Salut Cheri Beret to gift at Christmas. It left my house before I even had a chance to photograph it for Ravelry. Needless to say, it was a big hit. Thank you so much for the time you put into these patterns!!!

    1. I'm so glad to hear you like my patterns! I love to hear that people enjoy knitting and wearing something I have created. I'm always afraid that my designs are not good enough since I'm not a professional but this is something I really enjoy doing. :)

  2. Aww, that is the cutest little octopus! I love the happy aqua colour, too.

    1. Thanks! Theo really likes his octopus, and he has started to put everything in his mouth so I might need to wash it soon :)

Salut Chéri! Beret Pattern.

Here is the pattern for the berets I've knitted. The name for the beret is from the t-shirt I was wearing when I took the project photos of the first beret for Ravelry. I thought the name suited the beret, since it's quite classical take on the hat that has become the icon of everything French. Happy knitting!

Capsule Wardrobe and Knitting. Part 1. My Capsule Wardrobe Knitting Goals.

Before my preganancy I started to read about capsule wardrobes and decided to try and minimize my own pile of clothes. During these past two years I've been trying to define my own stye by really focusing on which clothes I wear over and over again, and which ones are just taking space in my closet.
And the results have been a bit surprising. I have always thought of myself as a colorful person and I thought I loved a bit quirky clothes. But the fact is I don't actually dress the way I imagined I do. I mean, I own(ed) those kind of clothes, but I seldom wear (wore) them. In the reality I kept reaching for the same basics over and over again and feeling the most comfortable wearing them. I do love colors, just not wearing them. It meant I had to redefine my style, my "uniform" and also my knitting queue. I cleaned away everything I didn't really wear and started to buy good quality basics instead. I also cleaned my knitting queue, replacing things that I liked only…
