Knit Your Own Microbe Plushie!
Knit your own microbe plushie!

I was inspired by the cute microbe plushies at <a href="http://www.giantmicrobes.com">GIANTmicrobes.com</a> to create my own little guy.

Say hello to Sam O'Nella!

Instructions

  • Step 1

    Body

    CO 6 st with MC, divide between needles and join for working in the round
    Round 1: kfb in every st, 12 st
    Round 2: k all sts
    Round 3: *kfb, k1* to end of round, 18 sts

    Cont in st st until your microbe is as long as you desire. At this point, embroider eyes & stuff to firmness desired.

    Dec Round 1: *ssk, k1* to end of round, 12 sts
    Round 2: k all sts

    Break yarn leaving an 18" tail & stuff a little more if desired. Draw yarn through rem sts & pull tight. Make a tiny knot near the top & hide yarn inside your microbe's body.

  • Step 2

    Flagellum (make as many as desired)

    Co 2 st in CC & knit an i-cord

    I knit mine about 4 in long, but you can make them however long or short you want!

  • Step 3

    Sew flagellum on the microbe's body as shown in the picture or wherever you want. Be creative!

    Enjoy playing with your microbe--at least you don't have to wash your hands afterward. ;D

Boy! I'm glad they aren't really that big - think of all the damage they could do.
And nobody would try to stop them, because they are so darling.
