The Details in the Devil: Part 1

Kurt Wagner: mutant, acrobat, swashbuckler… bit of a bugger to knit.

So, with @knitpool‘s consent  I offer up a tutorial on how I made my version of his awkwardly shaped feet and bifurcated hands.  

This only covers the alternations I made to these areas, to knit the rest of him you’ll still need a copy of Knitpool’s knitted action figure pattern (male).

We’ll start with the feet.  Since his feet mostly seem to be shown as being fairly symmetrical both feet use the same pattern.

I’m not about to claim that this is the best way to knit Nightcrawler’s feet, it’s just the way I did mine.

You might find it easier to knit the toes separately and sew them on afterwards but since I’m the queen of losing small pieces of knitting this way works better for me.

WARNING: The feet are knitted both in the round AND flat (a little bit).  I have tried to be clear about what is done where but if it’s confusing let me know.

Up next: finishing the foot.


Oh hey I’m moving. All sales within a week, price reflects the timeline and how much I care at the moment!  Okay, I moved, but pricing, I still prefer the room to the money so go for it.

PayPal, no holds or trades, us shipping $6 per costume, $3 for gamz or Hussie, international probably isn’t worth it.

Gordon Lish, at eighty, lives literally in the dark, because of his psoriasis: “His apartment is a crepuscular chamber, largely unchanged since his wife died more than a decade ago. With his heavy knit sweater and wild white hair, which culminates in a braid, he wanders these rooms looking like some cross between an old fisherman and King Lear … The problem with Lish is that he is all over the place. That also happens to be the best thing about him.”
