I'm trying to do the pancreas so I can finish this project but I'm confused by the directions at the beginning. Why would you use waste yarn to cast on with and then remove after one row? First of all, every time I've tried this the whole thing comes out. Also is this being worked in the round?

Since I failed to understand this I tried the liver but again had trouble getting started. It sounds like after the first KF, B&F in the knot it says to slide the stitches to the other end of the needle and KF&B in each stitch. This sounds like the way you work an I-cord. Is that right? And is it only that one time? The rest of the instructions don't tell you to do this so I'm assuming the answer is no.

I zipped through the rest of it during my Christmas break so I've been out of the groove with this project for too long waiting for the revisions. Maybe I've just forgotten how to do all this. I'd appreciate any help out there!

Yes, I had trouble with the pancreas too, but am very pleased at how it turns out, the pancreas stitches, when turned inside out, make it look just like the texture was described to me (like oatmeal that has been left out a day or two).  What helped me was to first read about the pancreas, it is 5-6 inches long and about 1" thick.  I started the bottom kind of like toe up socks, I didn't actually use waste yarn, but after one row, which I used like a base row that I knit off of front and back onto two different needles.  I am not sure if this is what the directions meant, but it came out perfect, you then work in the round, but it is more elongated like a sock than round.  So I cast on 4, then did my way of doing toe up socks, to then have 8 stitches to work in the round, then I placed the marker and continued with the pattern K1, Kf,b,f of nest stitch across.  I kind of followed the pattern after that, but the number of rows made my pancreas too big, so I kept with what I read about it being 5-6 inches long, and the general shape of it.  The texture stitches, the pancreas stitch is great, but you don't realize that until the end when you turn it inside out and stuff it.  I did the kitchener bind off as the weaving stitches together.  I don't know if this helps, since I could not exactly follow the pattern either.  The liver again I read about it first, it is cone shaped about 8" x 6 1/2".  To start, it is only the first row that you slide the stitches, once you have 6 stitches, I placed a marker and did in the round.  You increase 6 stitches every other row until you get to 72 stitches.

Well, I made it through the pancreas and have started the liver. When I got to the section immediately following the increase to 72 stitches, I ran into a problem. The increases and the number of stitches don't make any sense. I can't figure out how you could do this and have 91 stitches.

Hey, there, anatomically-correct knitters, when I saw this, I thought og you:

Maybe a new project for you?

Fin or anyone else who has made it through the liver,
I've followed your instructions on the liver <To start, it is only the first row that you slide the stitches, once you have 6 stitches, I placed a marker and did in the round.  You increase 6 stitches every other row until you get to 72 stitches> and I now have 72 stitches. I'm sure I need to continue this about 6" but then I don't understand some of the directions at the end. I know how to turn and knit but the "w" I don't understand. Can you help? Cry

Is there anything new on this knitalong? It seems the website with the complete set of instructions is no longer active and the craftster knitalong stops at the stomach.  Help!

ack ack ack!
I'd appreciate any pattern stuff too, I just started the other day, so I have a while to find the rest of the pattern.
I googled the designer/their website/etc, but I only found references.
I wish "Strange But Trewe" were still around, the penis cozy was funny and I wanted to try the doknit.

Anyone with info, let us know!
