Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

Holy crap.  I'm in love with this.  I wish I could learn to knit much quicklier (I make up words when I'm excited)!

Yesterday I was trying to make a comment praising you on your S and your More Different S, but my computer at home did not like the comment and decided not to post it.  So, here, a day late and to reiterate what craftykate wrote:

Great job on Trogdor, what with the S and the More Different S!!! 

You obviously have chosen to use your powers for Awesome!!

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Okay okay okay. Here is the Trogdor tutorial. Feel free to follow along with my step-by-step instructions. I make knitting fun! (Note: Because of the pipe cleaners and beads used in the making of Trogdor, this toy is NOT suitable for small children).



Yarn: I used a heavy (12 ply) acrylic for the body, but any aran weight to chunky yarn will work fine. Gauge isnt that important, but if youre really obsessed with that sort of thing, mine was 4sts /6 rows = 1 inch in stockinette stitch. For the beefy arm and spineities/wings, I used worsted weight acrylics in pink and light green, and gauge was 4 sts / 7 rows = 1 inch.

Needles: 5mm double pointed needles (set of 4), 5mm straight needles.

Other things: Toy stuffing, black pipe cleaners, black yarn/ thread, two black beads, yarn needle, stitch marker (I just used a safety pin).

BODY

With green yarn and DPNs, CO 3 sts. Divide across 3 needles, and place marker to mark start of round. Work 3 rounds even.

Knit into the front and back (Kfb) of each st (6 sts). Work 1 rnd even.

Kfb each st (12 sts). Work 3 rnds even.

*K1, Kfb. Repeat from * to end (18 sts). Work 8 rnds even.

*K2, Kfb. Repeat from * to end (24 sts, 8 sts on each needle). Work even until piece measures 9 inches.

Now youre going to make the first curve of the S. Thread a yarn needle with a length of the same yarn youre using for the body. Gather three folds of fabric about 4 to 5 inches from the bottom of the knitting, near the start of the rounds.

 Stitch these folds together tightly. This will create the curve. Stuff the lower body to just above the curve youve created.

Continue knitting even until there are 7 inches between the live stitches and where you created the curve. (NOTE: this is the distance I used, but you may wish to make Trogdors body longer). Repeat the instructions for making the curve above, but be sure to do this on the OPPOSITE SIDE of the tube. Work 1 inch more even, then stuff upper body/back neck.  Continue knitting for another 1 inches.

HEAD- Transfer 8 sts from the second needle onto stitch holder- these will form the lower jaw. Divide remaining 16 sts over 3 needles- (5, 6, 5).
Work 6 rnds even, but on the last st of the 6th round knit into the front, back and front (Kfbf) of the st (2 sts increased). Next round- Kfbf, K4, (K2tog) 3 times, K7.  Work 1 rnd even. Stuff the upper part of the head/jaw firmly.
Next round- K2tog to last st, K1. Break yarn, draw the thread through the remaining sts, and pull tight. Make a small knot with yarn near the gathered sts, then hide yarn length inside toy.

Transfer lower jaw sts back onto 3 needles (3, 2, 3). Work even until lower jaw is slightly shorter than upper jaw. Stuff lower jaw with a small amount of stuffing. Next round- K2tog to end. Break yarn, draw through remaining sts and pull tight. Make a small knot as above and hide yarn inside toy.
Sew up the hole left between upper and lower jaws.

BEEFY ARM

With pink yarn and DPNs, CO 20 sts and mark beginning of round. K 5 rnds even.
Next round- * M1, K5. Rpt from * to end (24 sts). Work 10 rnds even.
Next round- K2 tog to end (12 sts). Work 1 rnd even.
Next round- *M1, K4. Rpt from * to end (15 sts). Work 9 rnds even.
Next round- *K2tog, K1. Rpt from * to end (10 sts). Work 2 rnds even.
Next round- *M1, K1. Rpt from * to end (20sts). Work 3 rnds even.
Next round- *K2tog, K1. Rpt from * to last 2 sts, K2tog. (13 sts). Work 1 rnd even.
Next round- K2tog to last st, K1 (7 sts). Break yarn, draw through remaining sts and pull tight. Make a small knot as above and hide yarn inside toy.
(At this point, the beefy arm should resemble a small knitted penis. Feel free to giggle immaturely at it for a while. I know I did).
Create the curve in the arm the same way you created the curves in Trogdors body. Do this at the decrease row halfway down the arm. Stuff arm firmly, and sew onto the back of Trogdors neck (opposite the upper body curve), with the curve of the arm facing downward. To create fingers, thread yarn needle with a length of pink yarn and use long, tight overhand stitches to define fingers. Knot yarn, and hide yarn end in toy. Create an elbow by stitching a small circle loosely in running stitch on the opposite side of the curve of the arm, then pulling the stitching taut. Knot yarn firmly, and hide yarn ends in toy.

SPINEITIES (Make 3)

Using light green yarn and straight needles, CO 2 sts. Leave a long yarn tail at the beginning to use for sewing up.
1st row- K2
2nd row- Kfb, K1
3rd row- Kfb, K2
4th row- Kfb, K3
Repeat in this manner until there are 10 sts on needle. BO.
Fold triangle in half to make a smaller triangle. Using the long yarn tail at the top of each triangle to sew the triangle in half, and then sew it onto the lower part of Trogdors body. (Folding the triangles in half like this strengthens them, and makes them stand up better).

WINGALINGS (Make 2)

Using light green yarn and straight needles, CO 2 sts.

1st row- K2
2nd row- Kfb into each st.
3rd row- Kfb, K2, Kfb
Repeat in this manner, knitting into the front and back of the 1st and last st of each row, until there are 20sts on the needle.
Next row- Kfb, K to end. Repeat this row 3 more times (24 sts). BO.

FINISHING

Make Trogdors legs by inserting a black pipe cleaner through the point where you want the legs to be, threading it under the knitting for 4 or 5 rows, then pulling the pipe cleaner back out. Bend ends into feet.
Make angry eyebrows' by bending a pipe cleaner into a V, then stitching it onto the head at the base of the V using black thread/yarn. Cut the tops of the eyebrows to the size you want. Sew black beads on either side of the V to create eyes.
Wingalings- Fold one of the wing pieces in half to create a smaller triangle, and sew the triangle onto one end of a doubled over pipe cleaner, so the pipe cleaner is hidden inside the triangle. Insert the other end of the pipe cleaner into Trogdors body in the space between the eyes and the beefy arm, thread under knitting for 3 rows, then pull the pipe cleaner back out. Sew the other wing to the other side of the pipe cleaner. If there is some pipe cleaner showing at the base of the wings, wrap light green yarn around these exposed sections to disguise them.

There ya go! You made Trogdor! Feel the Burnination!

If I have made any glaring errors in this pattern (and it's fairly likely that I have), or you're just hopelessly confused and would like help, please send me a message and I'll try to fix any problems. And please post your finished Trogdors here- I'd love to see em!
