Octopus's Garden

7 reviews

The Octopus' Garden is a gorgeous shawl designed by Lousie Robert and inspired by the Beatles song of the same name... you know the one by Ringo Starr that goes:

“I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden in the shade
We would be warm, below the storm
In our little hideaway beneath the waves”

Knit with 2 glorious balls of Noro's classic Ito fiber. Waved strips made with short rows are reminiscent of the sea around the beautiful octopus "garden."  We've chosen three combinations, but you can combine literally any two colors of Ito and end up with a perfect, beautiful shawl!

  • 100% worsted weight wool by Noro
  • Finished size: 64" tip to tip, 20 inches at the deepest part
  • Hand wash gentle in cold water, lay flat to dry

And, if you're a teensy bit intimidated by German Short Rows, there are loads of Youtube videos demonstrating them (one of my favs here.) I daresay you'll find them easier than you think!

The kit comes with a downloadable pattern and all the yarn necessary to complete the project.

Needles are not included. This project requires US size 9 needles.
