Sparkly Queen Areola
"May the nipple always serve you."
"Sparkly Queen Areola"
2" in diameter
20 sts = 2.5" flat
This pattern is knit flat with short rows. You do not need to wrap short rows when working with wire, simply turn the work and begin the next row.
Before You Start
Pre-string any beads you want to use onto the wire before casting on. Remember to add them ONLY on WS rows. Usually I don't recommend putting beads on the first and last stitch of a row because it looks messy, but in this project it's OK to put them on the first stitch because of the way the piece is constructed. The last stitch of every WS row will not have a bead.
Pasties (make two):
Leaving yourself short (1-2") tail, use backward-loop method to cast on 5 sts onto size US 3 needle. Remember to give the first stitch an extra twist before casting on other stitches.
Use your mad geometry skillz to draw four 2" circles on the vinyl cloth with your compass. Cut out the circles carefully. Read the directions on the spray adhesive before using and follow the outlined safety measures! Spray the flocked side of each circle with a quick spritz of the 3M 77. Place two circles together to form a vinyl-and-flock sandwich cookie (where the flock is the the cream filling). Repeat with the remaining two circles.
Using the small hole left in the center of the fabric from the point of the compass as a guide, cut a straight line along the radius of the fabric cookie. This will let you force the cookie into a slightly conical shape by allowing the fabric to overlap upon itself. Do this to both cookies.
Give one side of a cookie a liberal spray of 3M 77. Push the sticky side of the cookie into the inside (concave side) of the pasty. Form cookie to shape of pasty. It should be slightly smaller than the pasty to avoid having fabric overhang. Hold firmly for 1 minute and let dry thoroughly according to adhesive directions. Repeat for second pasty.
Apply eyelash glue liberally to inside of pasties. Press into place and hold for 30 seconds to a minute. Let dry according to directions. Voila! You are now the Sparkly Queen Areola!
