Part Five:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=60493.msg620875#msg620875

My plan is to post a new set of instructions and some progress photos every couple of days.  I'd love to see your progress too.  If you have any questions, or my instructions don't make sense, PLEASE ask me to explain.  I know I need to work on my pattern-writing skills!

Part One:  Materials

You will need:

1 set U.S. size 6 (4.0 mm) d.p.n.s
1 set U.S. size 8 (5.0 mm) d.p.n.s
1 set U.S. size 10.5 (6.5 mm) d.p.n.s
a tapestry needle
waste yarn for temporary cast-ons
stitch markers (or more waste yarn)
a stitch holder
polyester stuffing

Yarn (what I'm using is in parentheses)

Angry Pink:  Worsted Weight, 1/2 oz.  (Caron Simply Soft Brites: Papaya)
Mellow Pink:  Worsted Weight, 2 oz.  (Red Heart Super Saver: Rose Pink)
Shiny White:  Sport Weight, 1/4 oz.  (Bernat Baby Coordinates:  Natural)
Yellow-Pink:  Super Bulky Weight, 6 oz. (Red Heart Baby Clouds:  Creamsickle)
Soft Pink:  Bulky Weight, 1 oz.  (Bernat Softee Chunky:  Pale Antique Rose)
Burgundy:  Worsted Weight, 1 oz.  (Red Heart Super Saver:  Burgundy)
Green:  Worsted Weight, 1/4 oz.  (Red Heart 4 ply:  Emerald)

Here's a picture of my yarns, in the same order.  



This is a great stashbusting project provided you have a lot of miscellaneous pinks.  If not, I'd love to see someone make an alien digestive system with different colors of green or blue!

I think this is so cool!  I doubt I'll knit the entire digestive system, but I am going to knit a liver for a friend for christmas.  He's mildly obsessed with livers.  I'll keep checking back to see when you post the liver pattern.

Considering most of the time the work is less than 6" around, a 12" circular needle probably isn't going to do it.  Unless you really love Magic Loop.  Cheesy

This looks like a lot of fun.!  I can't wait to knit a DIGESTIVE SYSTEM!

This will make a fantastic addition to my kids' homeschooling program. Cheesy

How did you come up with such a great idea?

Cheers,

Cat

I really like this project, but don't know what I would do with a hand knit digestive system.
