This is the 2nd pattern in The Hogwarts Library Collection. It is an adventurous beginner level pattern, meant to use a fun skein of worsted weight hand-dyed yarn; it is a recipe rather than written out stitch by stitch, because the placement of the tentacles depends on how the yarn is dyed. There is also an option to add some drop stitches for an extra distressed look.
Suggested colors in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted: Flames (shown), Green Valley, Niagara, Amy's Vintage Office, Hawthorne, Cattails, Atticus, Black Watch.
Small and [large] size - about 7.5" [6"] high and 23" [30"] circumference
