We’re ready to knit ourselves a Nautie. This free pattern up on Knitty states, “For almost 500 million years, nautiloids were the coolest kids around. They ate trilobites, had shells in a variety of fantastical shapes, and ranged from bite-size to 12 feet long. Every scary prehistoric beast should be made into a huggable toy, and I say it’s the nautiloid’s turn. With this pattern you can make one in an evening, in easy stockinette on dpns.” [ via ] Link.
