While completely impractical, this knitting project makes a very hilarious gift to a special someone who thinks you are completely nuts about knitting.
I started this project not knowing what it would turn out to be. I was just learning how to knit with 4 double pointed needles and i had wanted to make something bigger, but kept screwing up so I only casted on 12 stitches because I felt impatient. Being of an odd size, not big enough for a hand but too small for one finger, it was inevitable that it would become a condom.
Here's how I did it:
(size 8 double pointed needles + thin angora yarn)
Cast on 12 stitches, knit 29 rows, decrease by 2, knit another row, decrease by 3, knit one more row, decrease by 3 again, then knit your last 4 stitches for 2-3 rows, depending on how long you want the tip part to be. Cast off.
Realistically, this may be a little small. For a more realistic approach, try casting on maybe 13 or 14 stitches and knitting more rows, like about 38 or 40.
