Pudenda, a once-common euphemism for the female genitalia, comes from a Latin word that means (roughly) “shame.” But times—and terms—have changed. (Aren’t we all glad we don’t have to ask our lovers to “touch my pudenda?” Talk about a mood-killer.) Personally, I don’t have a lot of shame when it comes to my genitalia, which is why I named this merkin Superbia—Latin for “pride.” It says, “Hey, I might be covering it up, but I sure as hell ain’t ashamed!”

26.5 stitches and 33 rows per 4"/10cm in stockinette.
The piece is worked in reverse stockinette with a stockinette motif in the center.
Cast on 34 stitches.
Lay your merkin on the square of fabric and trace its outline with the marker. Cut inside the lines by about 1/2 inch. (Precision isn’t terribly important in this step; just make sure your fabric triangle is not larger than your merkin.) Using the needle and thread and making small stitches, sew the merkin to the fabric triangle, knit-side down. Pinning the corners will help ensure a proper alignment.
Affix to bare skin with spirit gum, or add small loops of ribbon to the top corners and wear on a chain or belt.
