as a bio geek i am in love! awesome job! even if it is mutant, gives it more character
funny i stumbled upon this post, as i am currently taking a break from my genetics lab write up...
about how big is it?
This pic might give some scale as to how big it is:
If I had to guess I'd say 8-9 inches long??
Someone asked how long it took to make it, not long at all!! The black parts are really just knitting in the round with some increases and decreases. FYI, she has you do yarn overs for the increases which leaves some holes that you can thread yarn through later. But I changed to kfb halfway through and it worked a lot better.
And this pattern is not hard at all! The designer figured out the hardest part, getting the black parts to twist the right way. It's basically a bunch of tubes.
I'd love to see more people make this!! I think a tiny keychain one would be cool but I'd have to knit with embroidery floss and toothpicks, not fun!
