Hook Line + TInker

Industrious Octopus Embroidery Kit

$26

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

Level 3: Ambitious Beginner Friendly

Included in the kit:

  • pre-printed pattern on unbleached cotton fabric
  • 15cm (6”) embroidery hoop
  • embroidery floss
  • embroidery needle
  • instructions
  • stitch guide


      => Process
      All of Hook, Line & Tinker’s embroidery illustrations are original made by Laurie. Each illustration is repeatedly rendered through the craft of hand embroidery using a variety of basic stitches to build texture and a pleasing design. The pattern evolves with each hand rendering with attention to texture and technique. Through this process, instructions for completing each design are developed. The 100% cotton fabric is cut and prepared by hand, and all finalized patterns are printed onto the fabric in the studio using inks that maintain their integrity during the stitching process. Each kit is packed by hand. Packaging is designed to be lightweight and compact to reduce environmental impacts via shipping, and paper, including recycled paper, have been used rather than single use plastics.
