Stigmittens, or is it Stigmitta?













Quick and dirty:

Worsted Weight yarn in your variety of flesh tone. Bits of worsted weight in blood tones.
Size 3 and size 6 knittingneedles (you may wish to go with size 5s, especially if your hands are small.)
tapestry needle

Cast on 36 stitches on size 3 needles..
Work a K2 P2 rib for about an inch.
Change to size 6 needles, and work stockingette stitch for about 5 inches (or for almost as long as you want them)
Change back to size 3 needles, and work a K2 P2 rib for about half an inch.
Bind off all stitches in pattern.

Follow chart below to duplicate stitch the stigmata in place on each side

Sew up the sides, leaving a space for your thumb.

Enjoy the angst.

suggest leaving the nail holes open. you could display them with, say, a railroad spike through the hole, or hang them on coathooks. etc.

maybe spell INRI on the cuff.

I love it - you are a sick woman, but it's very Pythonesque.

Oh my, this is one of the funniest things I've seen in a long, long time. I'm sure that I'm going straight to hell, do not pass Go, do not collect $200...

Thanks for the inspiration - sure wish I had some similarly twisted friends to share it with!!
