3-D knitting
I'm totally enamored with the spiky dragons and crocodiles at morehouse yarn's website, but if I try to bring home any more yarn and kits and ideas before finishing my current projects, I think my husband will lose it!

So until I clear out my list of pending projects and empty out some drawers, I'm not going to the yarn shop. No matter what. So there... uh--- huh...

Anyway, I'm hoping I can DIY something with the yarn I have. Does anyone know the theory or anatomy of spikes like that, or really any kind of 3-d knitting where the knitting is raised up from the rest of the piece. Once, long before I knew anything more than knit and purl, I saw a pattern for a breast-cancer awareness "boob scarf" and I imagine that would work the same way. But now I can't find it.

Any help would be great! TIA!

Is this the scarf you're referring to?

http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/knittyF04surp.pdf

It's from the 2004 Knitty fall surprise, but it's not listed in their archive...

Why yes, yes it is. Best sentence: "Instructions for optional nipple are included."

Sweet. Maybe I can make this scarf and my daughter will grab those nipples instead of mine. YOW! There's no t-twister like the kind that comes with razor-sharp infant nails!

You crack me up!

I should add that most 3-D knitting is done with short rows. This article demonstrates the concept:
