**This is a knitting pattern - not a finished rat**

Who knew that lab rats were as cuddly on the inside as they are on the outside? Biologists, that's who.

Ladies and gentlemen -- I am pleased to offer up, for your knitting pleasure, my pattern for the knitted, dissected lab rat!

This is a pattern for an intermediate knitter, though a determined beginner could certainly do it. The skills you'll need to knit this rat include:

* Basic Stockinette stitch
* Increase and decrease stitches (right and left leaning)
* I-cord
* Small diameter knitting in the round
* Picot bind-off
* Picking up stitches
* Needle felting

This is a digital file, which will be available for download upon payment confirmation.

I love how the knitted pattern is created and described. The only downfall is the lack of instruction on the felted pieces.

Arrivé très vite (normal en pdf), mais cependant beaucoup trop de difficultés à comprendre de tutoriel pour une française qui n'est pas une débutante en tricot.

Omg! This knitted dissected rat is so awesome! It's original and creative and the workmanship is fantastic. I could never knit like that. Displaying it in a dissecting tray was genius. This makes a great gift for the beloved geek in your life (or your inner geek). Great packaging - arrived in good condition. Thank you!!!
