Sea Creatures!

All patterns by the genius Hansi Singh (Hansigurumi)!

Jellyfish (or Sea Jelly, as my Marine
Bio professor would have corrected)

Dumbo Octopus
Dumbo Octopus
The color choices took waaaaay longer than the actual knitting.
I must have re-knit parts of this 50 times…
The Dumbo is a rare deep sea octopus. See "Grimpoteuthis” for more info.

Blue Ringed Octopus
Blue Ringed Octopus
The Blue Ringed Octopus is the most venomous animal in the world!
It carries enough poison to kill 26 adult humans within minutes! Yaaaay!
See Blue-ringed Octopus: Hapalochlaena.
I just added embroidered rings to the plain octopus pattern.
I also hand dyed the top of his head to get some peachy color to it…

They all live in my bathroom. More will follow... I will probably get around to all of her patterns.
