Knit One, Slip One, Pass the Slipped Stitch Over
Using the thumb method cast on 30
(35, 40, 45) stitches (according to size)
Then, keeping the tension correct, *Knit 2, Purl 2.*
Repeat *K2, P2* to the end of the row.
Maintaining the rib pattern, continue
until the finished work measures 8 (9,10, 11, 12) inches
(again according to size).
Alternatively, continue in pattern
until you find the work satisfying;
or until, with luck and a backer,
you make the Sundays and win the Turner Prize.
Admire the photographs, file your clippings;
talk a lot of arty, pseudo-feminism.
Say: ‘It is just a bit of a body‘.
Bore the bloody pants off the rest of us.
Says it's all art and 'craftivism'.
Now cast off.
