Eye with Nerve
Adding to the Crocheted Microbes and Guts, I present to you an anatomically correct Eye in its own display box. How cute is this? Okay maybe cute isn’t the right word.
The eye isn’t tested so let me know if you find any problems. Use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find your work and give you love. Don’t forget to check out my shop if you would like to purchase ad free patterns, plush or kits.

Note: Almost the entire project is worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.
Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.
The bracketed number  is the number of stitches at the end of each row.
I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.
