  • How to make an object plushie. Gruesome Knitted Eyeballs - Step 1
    Step 1

    <b>Knitted Eyeball</b>

    With black Cast On 6 stitches.
    <b>Rnd 1</b> Slide sts to other end of needle and knit into the first st cast on as for I cord। k to end.

    Separate stitches onto 3 needles (2st on each)

    <b>Rnd 2</b> *k1, increase1, k1; repeat from * (9 sts)
    <b>Rnd 3</b> with iris color k
    <b>Rdn 4</b> * k1, inc 1, k1, inc1, k1; repeat from * (15 sts)
    <b>Rnd 5</b> knit
    <b>Rnd 6</b> with white k
    <b>Rnd 7</b> on each needle, *k1 inc1; end k1 (27 sts)
    <b>Rnd 8</b>-10 k

    Now is a good time to weave in all the pesky ends you have thus far, turn eyeball inside out while still on needles, for easy access.

    <b>Rnd 11</b> *k1, k2 tog, k1,k2tog, k1; repeat from * 18 sts
    <b>Rnd 12</b> & 13 k
    <b>Rnd 14</b> *k1, k2tog; repeat from *(12 sts)
    <b>Rnd 15</b> k
    <b>Rnd 16</b> k2 tog around.

    Break off yarn, thread thru loops, before tying off stuff with fleece, poking it in with a spare needle, fluffing to achieve a lovely spherical eyeball shape. Pull tail-end tight and weave in end.

    You might add a few red threads for some ghoulish veiny appeal.
