A set of knitting patterns to knit and make a cuddly mermaid doll and a big friendly octopus toy. Two of our popular undersea patterns at a reduced price.
Mermaid is simple to make and sew, and is very huggable, an ideal introduction to knitting simple texture. The octopus looks lovely sitting on a bed or a chair and is big and cuddly!
