Shortstuff, you start out making i-cord, and then just space the stitches out evenly onto 3 needles when they tell you to, and start knitting onto the 4th. Just be sure to knit at the near side of the circle of dpn's, and not the far side, so you will have the smooth knit side as the outside of your shell.

Oh, and as long as I'm posting here, I'm joining the knitalong!  Smiley

Here's a pic of my nautie-in-progress

Finished two!  Posted these on the Nautie KAL too.

These are little guys and they're a gift for somebody who could be on craftster now except that she's probably at home in bed.  by tomorrow morning there may be a third one.  they were knitted on size 3 dpns.

Everyone's nauties look really nice. I have a question, when do you start to do the coil? I tried to knit this but I didn't "sew" the coil until I was done and it didn't work out, also how do I exactly go about getting the coil? i read the instructions many times, but I am slow and can't get it. Thanks for any help

I started coiling on about the sixth row, by holding the work into a coil as tightly as I could, then picking up a stitch from the coil and knitting it together with my next stitch.  The instructions say to do this every 4th row but as it got bigger I actually did it less frequently.  If you coil as you go, it will take less stuffing material I think.

I agree with Geobabe.
I found, if I stitched it to the coil every fourth row, as it got bigger, I ended up struggling to make the opposite side pull round enough, and keep up with the side that was attaching to the coil (does that make sense??)  Shocked
But I did.  Roll Eyes

And how do I get the stitches that are at the ends of the rows, to not leave a small loose gap? I did try seperating them out evenly and stitching them tight, as I increased, but still have some 'grooves'??

I'm in the process of making my own nautie for a friend of mine. I think it's going to turn out to be pretty awesome, but I'm not gonna post a picture till it's completely done. Wink
