Well, a good friend who is a fellow doula and childbirth educator asked me to knit her a uterus that will hold "baby" during demonstrations of how babies come out and the uterus dilates. Anyone know of any patterns?

You guys should ... after all, this is the home of the ladies who know where to find weenie warmers! :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:

Thanks in advance,
Alison

PS. I'm thinking of doing a K2tog, yo coupled with an I-cord to show how a cervix dilates. Whaddya think? Or should I simply do a really snug ribbing instead?

In case you guys haven't seen this (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTwomb.html), I thought I'd add it to the mix. It can be the 'before' model! :rofling:

My daughter-in-law is becoming a childbirth educator. She knows that as an obsessive knitter, I am always interested in project ideas. She would love to have a knitted uterus and sent me one possible pattern. In quickly reading over it, I had a few questions about it and would love to have a pattern from someone out there that you recommend. I am new to this blog, found it by googling!

I am sitting here just about falling off my chair with laughter! This is the funniest thing I have read in a long long time!! And the 'cute cuddly uterus doll' just about takes the cake.

:shock: :roflhard: Ok, I am amazed at what patterns people can find lol!! And then I wonder, when I am looking for something that seems very basic, why I can't find what I'm looking for!!

Over at the AntiCraft blog they have a pattern for not only a knitted uterus, but the *ahem* entire set of female reproductive organs. And it's also a purse! :noway: Brenda Dayne mentioned it in episode 28 of Cast On. (http://www.cast-on.com/?p=49)

The pattern and hilarious photographs can be found here. (http://www.theanticraft.com/archive/imbolc07/snatchel.htm) I personally found the project funny and harmless but please don't click if you believe you're likely to be offended by a knit reproductive system..
