This was my favourite project to date; and not as scary as I imagined.

The pattern is available at http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATTnautie.html ; I see there's been a knitalong for it, I'm not surprised, it is very cool.

I was working on this on the underground (subway) once, and had a friendly argument with a guy about why it wasn't a snail; a rare incidence of human interaction on the tube. I also lied and said it was a bet, because I was embarrassed to admit I was such a nerd Smiley

Have you ever seen nautiluses swimming? They move through the water with a surprisingly graceful rocking movement.

P.S. I hope it's OK me posting a new thread for this, I'm still a bit confused by the structure of Craftster posts.

Aw man, I love the stripes! Good job.

Oh, and don't worry - I, too, am guilty of having fabricated the occasional bet/dare/contest to account for whatever socially awkward thing I was knitting or crocheting in public at the time. :]

ohhh good job!  I seen it and was hoping it was a crochet pattern for it.  I have been looking all over for a free nautilus crochet pattern!

_In search of Simply Knitting magazines with Alan Dart patterns.  If you have any I'll swap ya for them!

hmmm... there's a crochet nautilus on gooseflesh (I love the stuff there): http://hellejorgensen.typepad.com/photos/artcraft/flickrcephalopod.html though no pattern
if you feel very diy, http://supernaturale.com/articles.html?id=277 might help in figuring out your own way of doing one - I've promised myself I'll attempt it at some point

Thankyou to everyone for the lovely comments Smiley

that is so cute- welcome to craftster!
it's good that you can pull of the 'i'm not a geek, it was just a bet' thing. i made an amino acid strand bracelet and wore it to school, and everybody was like, "wow, that's really nerdy." and I was like... "um... i like science... and i was bored, so..."
