View Full Version : Need a "strange" pattern...joke present...slightly explicit

06-02-2008, 10:30 PM
So I just started knitting and have a million ideas for myself and friends and family. my boyfriend feels a little left out. I asked him over the phone what he would want me to knit him and, jokester that he is, he settled on a "banana sling":roflhard: . Now if you don't know what this is, its a specific kind of men's underwear. I'm looking for a pattern because i'm going to get him back for embarassing me. :mrgreen: can anyone provide any help? I want to get it done asap so he doesn't see me doing it and he gets off work for 7 days in a row on tuesday!

Would a thong pattern do?

you know, i'm not sure....I gues if you just added some stitches or something in the front.... do you have one?

LOL, thanks for the suggestion. I just found one http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer04/PATTthong.html

How about you really embarrass him and make him a willie warmer?

lol, if my skill were high enough for one of these I might attempt it! as it is I can't pull off the one from knitty because I don't have the right tools (only have three sets of needles and all flat) and my skill just isn't up there yet. I'm making it for a gag so I'm just sort of making a tie together thong. He needs a laugh. I just got a call saying his uncle had a heart attack. : (

oh I am so sorry about the heart attack. I hope his uncle will be ok.

on a lighter note. You could use this as an excuse to build up your tools :) you will probably need the needle for a later project anyway. :)

Oh, those are HILARIOUS!!!

Yeah, right now we still aren't sure whats going on. It's worse because my BF works at the hospital in the pharmacy and has been making medicine for him so he doesn't get information but he is making his meds. it's crazy and he can't really get away from it. I'm making a bit of headway on the thong but I'm having a little trouble decreasing. It's akward and I watched the video but I'm still not sure I'm doing it right. : (

What's it say for the decs and how are you doing it?

well what I do is knit one, put it back on the left needle, pull the stitch behind that one over and off. that is what it looked like in the video. i don't know if it's right or not. I watched the video like a million times.
