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! Salut Chéri!

The sample was knitted with Novita Joki ( 104 m or 114 yard per 50g) needles : 3.5 mm and 4.0 mm (US size 4 and 6) circular needles (40 cm or 16 inches) size 4.0 mm (US size 6) DPNs 6 stitch markers , one of a different color to indicate the beginning of the round Gauge : 10 sts and 16 rounds = 5 cm (2 inches) in straight Stockinette stitch with 4.0 mm needles Cast on 88 sts on 3.5mm circular needle.

Saving A Curling Scarf.

Don't you just hate it when a piece you've spent hours working on doesn't turn out the way you imagined it? It looks like this... ...when it should be more like this. After just a couple of rows into the Trellis scarf I noticed the cast on edge started to roll upwards ever so slightly. As I continued to knit the curling got worse and worse until it seemed to calm down when the scarf measured 10 cm or so from the CO edge. I didn't really stress much about it thinking it would be easily fixed later on and continued to knit further. Halfway through knitting the scarf I faced another problem with the scarf. The CO edge still rolled up and now the sides started to curl inwards. So badly that the scarf lost more than half of it's width. I hate it when it happens. If this was something I designed myself I could maybe live with the mistake, but when it's a pattern that is published I would assume such things would have been fixed. Or at least
