What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use a stitch maker for the beginning of each row and stuff the tentacles every 7 rows or so for easy access inside.

Absolutely fabulous. I await your pattern. I love the line of orange in the tentacles.

Thank you, Ladymaz. It was great fun designing it. I've nearly got it typed up and I hope to publish it this afternoon!

Hello again. I have now typed and uploaded the pattern on the project information above. It's FREE, as it is my first and I want it to be special. Hope you'll have a go at it and I look forward to seeing your pictures. If you have any questions, just ask.

Thank you, Lynn. We all have different talents and must use them best we can. I can't knit or quilt, but I can embroider and sew. I can't do what you do either!
