Warning! The link below will take you to pictures of an anatomically correct knitted Vagina. I made this as part of a display “quilt” that was part of a V-day celebration and a performance of Eve Eisner’s Vagina Monologues that happened at my Medical School.

The pattern is my own. I am certainly not the first person to knit this bit of anatomy, and one very nice pattern can be found on the really cool Anticraft website here:

The Anticraft pattern is great, but I wanted something that would be a bit better for pure display purposes and did not have any crochet in it. I’ve written up a rough pattern below, and please let me know about any mistakes I might have made/questions you might have. This is a really fast knit  (I made it while sitting in class the day of the performance) and can use up little scrap yarns you have lying around. Enjoy!

Medstudentknitter’s Knitted Vagina

Materials: Scrap furry yarn, scrap yarn that matches the fur,  Scrap worsted red yarn (I used a wool), scrap worsted pink yarn ( I used a pink cotton), 2 US #6 circular needles, a button or bead.

Mons Pubis:
Holding Fur yarn and matching yarn together (to get a roughly worsted weight thickness) Cast on 50 stitches. Divide on the 2 circular needles and join in the round.  Knit for 5 rounds. (NOTE: when you are done you will turn this inside out and the Purl side will be the Right side, and the Knit side will be the Wrong Side)

Decrease Row: *Knit 8, Knit 2 together * repeat 5 times until you get to the end of the round. You should now have 45 stitches.

Knit 1 more round with the fur yarn.

Labia Majora:
Cut Fur yarn and join Red yarn. Knit 3 rounds.

Decrease Row: *knit 7, knit 2 together* repeat 5 times until you get to the end of the round. You should now have 40 stitches

Purl for 1 Round

Labia Minora:
NOTE: unlike the rest of the vagina these are NOT worked in the round, the stitches are divided in half and each lip of the Labia minora is worked individually back and forth on 1 circular needle. This also means that they are in garter stitch, unlike the rest of the vagina, which is stockinet with the Purl side as the right side.

Using Pink Yarn, knit 20 stitches. Staying on 1 circular needle turn, knit 2 together, and knit to the last 2 stiches, knit 2 together. You now have 18 stitches.

Increase/Decrease row: Knit 2 together, Knit 5, *Knit 1 Increase  1* 3 times. Knit 6, knit 2 together.

Turn, Knit 2 together, knit across to last 2 stitches, knit 2 together

Bind off all stitches

Other Lip: Go to the stitches on your other circular needle and repeat all of the above steps

Finishing: Turn inside out (so that the Purl side is out). Weave in/tack down ends. Sew on a Button or Bead to be the Clitoris.

We're doing a production of the Vagina Monologues at my school, and I am in it.  I told my friend/the director about knitted vaginas.  She thought it was hilarious, but alas, I did not have the time to make one!  Your's is great though.

I saw my very first vagina monologues this past weekend and thought of the "you can't like vaginas if you don't like hair" as soon as I saw the pic.  I'll never look at fun fur the same way... Great job! These are fantastic
