Downloadable PDF - Squid Knitting "Ball of Fun"

8.00

Oh, if I only hand another set of arms (or tentacles)! This whimsical squid balling yarn is a must for the knitter or crocheter. The design was created on a challenge from a friend with an affinity for knitting. Challenge accepted! But don't worry...it's easy to complete your own work of art using four basic stitches. The pattern and its instructions are available for immediate download.

Choose to incorporate lots of links (detached chain) or simply use a single stitch for a very first-time friendly design.

Process

It is my intention that the printed patterns retain their original, hand-drawn aesthetic. All of Hook, Line & Tinker’s embroidery illustrations are original and designed by me by hand, beginning with a simple number 2 pencil and a sketchbook. The completed images are scanned and minimally edited digitally to create the patterns. Each illustration is repeatedly rendered through the craft of hand embroidery using a variety of basic stitches to build texture and a pleasing design. The pattern evolves with each hand rendering with attention to texture and technique. Through this process, instructions for completing each design are developed.

Need another reason to feel good about buying from Hook, Line & Tinker? I donate 5% of profits to help women and children experiencing homelessness.
