31  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: 1 year until wedding gift? on: November 01, 2005 06:20:33 AM
You know how different year anniversaries have themes?  Like first year paper, second year cotton, fiftieth year gold?  You could make up a theme for your -1 year anniversary.  I can just imagine you surprising your sweetie with "guess what, it's our Jell-O anniversary!"  Then give him a heart-shaped jiggling dessert.

LOVE the Hannibal Lecter bag.

Wrap & turn is the command for making short rows, Knitty has a pretty good article on the technique here: http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/FEATbonnetric.html.

You could do the small intestines with a knitting spool, but, personally, I can knit faster than I can push the yarn over those little nails.  I'll share my tips for making the small intestines go quickly when we get to that section.  Wink

After a very busy weekend, Part Two is here!


Anus

With size 6 dpns and Angry Pink, cast on 10 sts using a
temporary cast-on, join.  (If you don't know how to do a
temporary cast-on, just cast on normally using waste
yarn then knit 1 row with Angry Pink).
Knit 8 rows.

Pull cast-on edge up through the middle of the dpns.  
Slip a few stitches off the waste yarn and onto a spare
dpn (I find it helps to use a smaller size). Next knit
every stitch together with a stitch from the cast-on
edge, slipping cast-on stitches from waste yarn onto the
spare dpn as needed. Place a stitch marker to mark the
beginning of the row.

Cast-on edge slipped onto small needle, ready to knit together.


Insert needle through one working stitch and one cast-on stitch,


and knit.


The finished Anus.

Awww, it's cute!

Rectum

M1 = make one stitch by lifting the running thread between the stitches and knitting into the back of this loop.

K3 rows plain.
K3,M1,K3,M1,K3,M1,K1 (13 sts)
K2 rows plain.
K4,M1,K4,M1,K4,M1,K1 (16 sts)
K2 rows plain.
K4,M1,K4,M1,K4,M1,K4,M1 (20 sts)
K12 rows plain.
K5,M1,K5,M1,K5,M1,K5,M1 (24 sts)
K6 rows plain.
Next row:  *K12, wrap and turn, P10, w&t, K8, w&t, P6,
w&t, knit to end of row, picking up wraps.*
K5, picking up wraps, and repeat from * to *.
K2 rows.
Switch from Angry Pink to Placid Pink by following the
fair isle chart, carrying both colors behind the work.

Row 5: Break Angry Pink and knit all stitches with
Placid Pink.
K4 more rows with Placid Pink.

The finished Rectum, notice how the short rows cause the top to bend slightly.




C'mon, Craftsters!  I want to see your anuses!

I've changed the pattern adding "turn" commands and changing the formatting so hopefully it's a little more obvious where one row begins and ends.  Thanks for bearing with me!

Thanks for the link, spinnity.   I was beginning to think I'd hallucinated that.

I understood the abbreviations but while I was trying I got confused after like the first line. When you say " sc in bar of previous sc" What is the bar?

Sorry, I didn't mean to sound patronizing.  Not knowing where I had gone wrong, the abbreviations were just the easiest thing to clarify.  Embarrassed

The "bar" of a crochet stitch is the vertical chain part, not the V-shaped part in which you usually crochet on the next row, but the part that changes length between a single, double, triple etc. crochet.  The second line of instructions "Ch1, sc in bar of previous sc, sc again in last ch of foundation ch" turns the work 90 degrees, so while the button holes (the first line of the instructions) are worked across, the rest of the choker can be worked up and down.

Thanks for pointing this out!  I'll rewrite the pattern a little later.

What exactly don't you understand?  I'll admit, I don't have much practice writing patterns for other people to interpret.  Let me know and it might help us both!

ch = chain
sl = slip stitch
sc = single crochet

That's kinda obvious to me, but I realize it might not be so to everyone else.  Embarrassed
