I saw the beholder pattern in the most recent issue of AntiCraft and would love to make one either as a stuffed toy or as a hat.
unfortunately the patern is crochet and i have just never got the hang of that!
I think i can figure out the body as a knit pattern, but im not sure how i woud get the flat ended tube effect with knitting. icord is too narrow and cant be stuffed, and DPN tubes wouldnt have the flat end for attaching the eyes. Does anybody know how i could get the right effect.
the same problem applies to this pattern: http://www.theanticraft.com/archive/imbolc08/catchhiseye.htm how do i knit a flat circle that i can pick up stitches around the edge of to make the rest of the bag?
