Category 001 – Finger knitted Octopus

Entry deadline: Wednesday 15th April

Resources: Wool

If you don’t have any wool, you could always repurpose a Christmas Jumper – please ask the owner’s permission before you unravel it. Alternatively, you could use string, cord, t-shirt yarn.

There is whole world of finger knitting out there – I had no idea until I looked.

You can use whatever technique you prefer but if you search the internet for

If you have any yarn left over, try making the longest length of finger knitting you can.
