Fingers crossed that it’s not too for a xenomedical technician to help you.

  1. I sure wish I knitted fast enough to do do fun stuff like this.

  2. Did you make this a pattern? If so is there a link? This is a must-knit for my alien-obsessed fiance!

    • I did not make this, but I can ask the maker, K80K80K80. Standby.

      • Hey there! Thanks for the love. I made this beast. Unfortunately I don’t plan on publishing the pattern any time soon.

  3. Yes where do u get the pattern?

      Hi Crystal, there are a few patterns on Ravelry. I’m not sure if Katie has made this one available, but you could try to contact her to find out.
