I haven’t seen “Finding Dory” yet because my daughter went to see it during the summer camp at her school and I haven’t made her watch it again. But like “Finding Nemo” before it, the characters in this movie are adorable and ripe for reimagining in yarn.
Usually there are a lot more toys made in crochet than knitting, and you can’t always find free patterns for these sorts of characters, but I was made aware of this cute pattern by Nicola Riley for a knit Hank, who is supposed to be an octopus but only has seven legs (because his tentacles were designed separately from his body, and only seven would fit, and the filmmakers decided it fit in with the story for him to be a little abnormal).
This wee Hank is super cute, and the pattern runs £3.50, or about $4.51 at the time of this writing.
The same designer has a couple of Dory patterns, too, which I shared a few months ago.
