Sally…again. So one of the first things I “invented” was this bobble head thing that resembles a dragon or creature from a Dr. Seuss book when started at in the right way, it also makes for a great snake head. I made these baby toys so my newborn son would have something safe to play with and/or stare at that if he pulled it off it wouldn’t hurt him. I made different shapes and different colors and this is the only picture I could find and I actually wrote a pattern for the loops, of which you can make numerous ones and connect them.

Here’s the loop with bobble head pattern..no I didn’t invent i-cord and know it just the bobbley end thing! :

BABY TOY CONNECTOR RING
 
2 DPN SIZE 7 NEEDLES
 
CO3
 
- BEGIN I-CORD
(SLIDE TO OTHER END OF NEEDLE WITHOUT TURNING) KNIT 3 REPEAT ONCE
 
-MAKE A BOBBLE
 
K1, KNIT INTO THE 2ND STITCH (K into st BRING YARN OVER NEEDLE IN RIGHT HAND AND K into st AND BRING THE YARN OVER AGAIN THEN KNIT the 2nd stitch onto the right needle) (there will still be a st on left needle)
TURN WORK AROUND BRING YARN IN FRONT AND PURL THE 5 STITCHES YOU JUST CREATED (REMEMBER NOT THE 1ST STITCH)
TURN WORK AGAIN AND WORKING THE SAME 5 STITCHES K2TOG THEN BRING THE K2TOG STITCH BACK TO THE LEFT NEEDLE AND SLIP THE REMAINING STITCHES ONE AT A TIME OVER THAT STITCH THEN SLIDE THE STITCH BACK ONTO THE RIGHT NEEDLE
K1 (THE LAST STITCH)
DO NOT TURN WORK
-RESTART I-CORD
SLIDE WORK TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE NEEDLE AND
K3
SLIDE TO OTHER END OF NEEDLE AND
K3
REPEAT UNTIL WORK IS APROXIMATELY 8 INCHES LONG
SLIDE WORK OVER ONE LAST TIME THEN
 
CREATE LOOP
SLIP THE 1ST STITCH ONTO THE RIGHT NEEDLE(DO NOT KNIT OR PURL INTO THIS STITCH AGAIN UNTIL THE END OF LOOP), K2TOG
TURN P1, SLIP1
TURN SLIP1, K1
TURN P1, SLIP1
TURN SLIP1, K1
TURN P1, SLIP1
TURN K2TOG
 
FINISHING
 
CUT YARN LEAVING A 5" TAIL
PULL THROUGH LAST LOOP AND TIGHTEN
ON A TAPESTRY NEEDLE BRING TAIL THROUGH THE 2 STICHES SEEN AT THE BASE OF THE LOOP AND INTO THE STITCH ON THE LEFT MAKE A KNOT THEN PULL THE TAIL
THROUGH THE WORK AND HIDE THE KNOT AND TAIL INSIDE
ONCE YOU FEEL IT'S IN FAR ENOUGH(AN INCH SHOULD BE FINE) PULL TIGHT (WORK WILL PINCH)AND CUT TAIL THEN PULL WORK BACK AND TAIL WILL BE SEEN NO MORE
 
BEGINNING OF THE WORK PULL TAIL THROUGH THE BODY OF THE WORK AS ABOVE


As for the different shapes, I knit the square, rectangle and triangle and picked up stitches to start the i-cord so the loop attached to each was, well, attached. I stuffed them with batting and that’s that. Oh and used crochet to make the circle.

We should all fear evil men, but what we should fear most, is the indifference of good men. On a lighter note..have you smiled today? If you have not, Just DO IT! If you have..do it again!
