ok here is the pile of flesh for MY dog. with red heart supersaver and size 8 straight needles. i've added a 'drawing' with all the necessary measurements that one needs to make .. .
Stripes= Garter stitch
Pink = seperate ball of yarn
Red/Green dots = pick up i cord sts.
ok. . i
CO 67 sts, then worked in Garter stitch until i had about an inch. (long stripey piece)
BO 5, K5, BO13, K21, BO13, K10.
BO5 then you have to break the yarn. you'll need one ball for each pink section. i wound up two really tiny balls for the small side pieces.
knit across all pieces ( i did the center section in St St (thus no stripeys)) until the side pieces are about
1 1/2" long, then only work the center. i did the skull from SnBN, but this part is about 3" wide.
whew .. moving on.
when you finish the center, you'll have to finish off one side piece and when you finish up that side you'll have to CO 5 sts.
K10, CO13, K21, CO13, K5, CO5.
switch to one piece of yarn
and join all pieces. then work in garter stich for another inch and BO all sts.
Then . . pick up 3 sts where the red/green dots are . . . the green dots indicate that ONE stitch should be picked jup through BOTH layers of fabric. knit i cord for about 9" on each side .. weave in ends and take a damn break . . cuz you'll deserve it. or, at least i did.
