Double Knitting Great technique for a seamless amulet.  I learned it from Donna Druchanas when she posted about Condom Amulets on her Knitting for Change site in 2006.  Her directions include illustrations to help get you started.  You can turn out an amulet closed on three sides, open on the top like this one with yarn from China.  Thanks, Donna! Butterfly stitch  Kay Gardiner of Mason*Dixon Knitting taught me this one for making a cord.  She uses it on her Ballband Key Chain Amulet. Faggot stitch  Works for an open look, here in a pin-back amulet (right), cast on 18 stitches (this is lightweight chenille yarn) *K1, YO, K2tog*, repeat every row.  Units of 3 sts can make it wider or narrower (far right). Knitty.com instructions here for faggot-cord stitch.  Recycled UFOs When I began the project, knitters offered me small amounts of yarn leftovers.  Teva Durham had just completed Loop D Loop Knitting and gave me a bagfull of discards from samples tried for the book. This sleeve was from a sweater.  I turned it upside-down, sewed up the side and... a Condom Amulet.  Looks to me like a cross between bracelet and a wrist-warmer.  Good for casual wear and will hold many more than pictured, plus a female condom. Ideas you have are welcome here.  Send an email to Naomi@knitacondomamulet.com with the details. [...]

Because there are a variety of sizes and shapes to condoms, this is a general guide.  Sometimes this will determine how you knit an amulet.  There are so many knit designs yet to be explored--by you. These are variations on the most familiar size, 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" squares. Another square one--lights up in the dark--packaged in a 3" x 3" box. From a dispensing machine (North Carolina, unisex rest room), the "Black Jack" measures 2" x 1-1/4".  Just 50 cents but not latex.  Round condom, 2-1/4" circumference. Lengthwise, smaller container,1/2" x 1" suited to this double-knitted amulet with beads to be worn around the neck.  Or, it could have a pin back. And the largest package contains the female condom, measuring 3-1/4" x 4-3/4".  The condom itself is smaller, so the package can be folded up at bottom. It will then fit into an amulet like this one.  Funky yarn here is a excellent re-use for yarn mistakenly purchased for a garment.  Many possibilites for many gifts of Condom Amulets for friends, family. neighbors--room for several condoms too. Its bright colors and loop make it easy to locate in a purse.  Or, hang it on your bathroom wall--tuck the female condom behind a Post-It pad if discretion is a concern. Kay Gardiner, designer of the Ballband Key Chain Amulet, suggested this alternative use.                                               [...]
