How to get Squid Ink in Stardew Valley
You can get Squid Ink in Stardew Valley by defeating Squid Kids in the mines.
Squid Kids are pink balls with a face that shoot fire. While they might look hideous and behave aggressively, you should be able to defeat them with the swiftest of ease.
Because you have to venture past level 80 in order to first start capturing Squid Ink from the mines, the supposedly easier method for attaining the luxurious item is by fishing.
However, this can only be achieved during winter at nighttimes past 19:00.
Once you’ve captured a squid from fishing around the beach and dock next to Willy’s shop, you then want to house it in a fishpond in your farm.
This will allow you to be able to pick up some Squid Ink every few days to use an ingredient for clothing dye and tailoring.
