Free Willy! April 19, 2011

Filed under: FO,knitting — Emily @ 6:35 pm

He’s trapped in the cubicle farm!


Pattern: Oedipus the Orca by Ali Tong
Yarn: Paton’s Classic Merino for the Black, Lion Brand Wool-Ease Worsted for the White
Needles: US 4 Susan Bates Silverlume DPN’s
Started: April 8, 2011
Finished: April 10, 2011
Mods: I had to reknit the white belly because the belly that followed the written directions was too big. The fins are all stockinette rounds instead of garter stitch.  Were I to knit him again, I would slow down the increases so that he doesn’t get so round so fast.


See my belleh!


Poor little chap is a bit cock-eyed, but I just call him special.

    Oh my GOODNESS! That is completely adorable. Sorry about the belly being too big, I wrote the pattern after I had already knit him up so I was probably off on that. my bad! But you did a great job and he looks so cute!
