      I'm glad you guys like him! I definitely recommend anyone who is confident with their knitting skills give either this or the octopus a try.

      acornbud: I wish I could take credit for the design, but I can't. I love all the critters in Hansi Singh's etsy shop too!!

      Definitely a one of a kind sort of fellow. I would not care to run into him in the deep blue sea, myself! Great eyes (knitted - amazing)!

      I tried to get the pattern, but Etsy says that it no longer exists. Any thoughts on where I could get it? It's super cute!!
