New Book | Robyn Octopus & Friends
25th September 2020
There are so many benefits to chunky yarn. Known variously as ‘Super Chunky’ in the UK, ‘Super Bulky’ in the USA and 16-ply yarn in Australia, it is big, soft, delicious to work with and really quick to knit up.
If you thought that yarn this size was really only good for beanies, scarves or oversized cardigans, think again. When you see the 17 adorable toys in Claire Gelder’s new book ‘Robyn Octopus and Friends’ you’ll wonder why you’d never thought of it before.
All worked in Super Chunky yarn, each of these gorgeous animals, from Claire’s iconic Mabel Bunny through to Joan the colourful Seahorse, sit at a huge 70cm tall. They are just the right size and softness to keep a child comforted at night or to give you something perfect to cuddle in front of the TV.
It’s time to get your big needles out and cast on one of these adorable creatures. We’re pretty sure it won’t be long before your house is overflowing with super-sized and super cuddly, animal friends.
