21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / more fruit people with a new pattern link on: January 01, 2007 07:07:08 PM
I knitted an apple to go along with the pear that I made yesterday. Her name is Mrs. Saucy Apple and her husband has been renamed Mr. Bartlett Pear thanks to a suggestion that someone on her gave me. Thanks! I am still debating whether to attach legs/arms. I think I might.

here is the pattern link:

Here she is:

HAPPY KNITTING. ad if you make one will you please put up a picture? I would love to see more fruit people.

24  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / "Sugi" the octopus <(with pattern)> UPDATED! on: December 29, 2006 05:11:13 PM
Yeah! for ME! this is my first post on craftster! Hello All!

I made an octupus like the one on Jess Hutch's blog (Does everyone love her patterns as much as I do? She's magniificent!). I just looked at the real one and made a pattern! I think it came out really cute! I also attached a suction cup to his underside so he could have a real sucker. I could probably tell you how to make one since I came up with the pattern and it is just inspired by hers?? If anyone wants the pattern let me know! I would be delighted to post it.
Here is the link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/63111594@N00/

(I can not post pictures yet!) just scrooooooll down and you'll see him!

Here is my pattern and here is a warning- I made up this pattern after I knitted him so if there are mistakes, just do what looks best to you and let me know! I want to see some more so post pictures if you create one! and THANKS to jess hutch for making the original one (she is so awesome!)::

Octopus that looks like “Sugi” we’ll call him, Albert

Pink or whatever color you want worsted weight yarn (I used KnitPicks Shine Worsted in Coral)
Size 8 dpns.
stuffing- I used Poly-fil, you can use scrap yarn
Yarn needle
Black yarn for embroidery (or Fabric paint in a tube)
Suction cup

Body: CO 24 sts. Divide evenly among needles

Row 1: m1 (or kfb, whichever you are comfortable with), k3, m1, k3, m1, k4, m1, k3, m1, k3, m1, k2 – you should have 30

Row 17: k2tog, k5, k2tog, k5, k2tog, k8, k2tog, k5, k2tog, k5, k2tog, k2 – you should have 36
Row 18: k all
Row 19: K2tog, k4, k2tog, k4, k2tog, k6, k2tog, k4, k2tog, k4, k2tog, k2 – you should have 30

Row 26: k all
Row 27: k2tog all the way around – you should have 6

Cut the yarn so that you have enough to pull the yarn needle through the stitches and into the center.

Arms: MAKE 8, CO 8 sts
Row 1-20: knit
Row 21: k2tog all the way around – you should have 4, cut yarn and pull through the sts. And center, embroider now if you are going to, stuff and sew onto the body. [

{{EDIT}} It helps to pinch the end of the tube together and to sew through the two layers and then sew onto the body. Then when all of the legs are sewed on you should sew the bottom up by pinching it closed.]

If you are using fabric paint, wait until you have sewn all the arms on and stuff the body. When everything is done you can attach a suction cup to his under side (I used a hot glue gun)
