Spider-Man Fitness Challenge! Superhero Gear Test & Obstacle Course | KIDCITY


three four five what’s up everybody its kids city back
with another spider-man Fitness Gym now that it’s worn up it’s important for
everybody to get outside stretch your legs today the kids are competing in a
obstacle course designed to get them both kids will run two rounds and the
idea is on the second round to better their time so they’re competing against
themselves you guys ready to do it yeah in this obstacle the kids will have
seven different challenges they’ll start at the agility rings move through the
spider-man crawl ropes hop down the bouncer lane
bob and weave through the soccer cones and then successfully make a long soccer
goal before they measure their long jump which will earn them some bonus seconds
on their times now the kids aren’t competing against each other they are
competing against themselves so in round two they’ll have to push themselves just
a little bit harder and try to beat their own times to help them out they’ll
be testing out new lycra spider-man suits that are specifically designed for
athletes we’ll see if that helps them get better times first up is Ava you
wanna do some stretches gymnastics beam she fell all right here

oh and that’s a skip too and she finishes minute 34 a minute 34 but what we’re
doing is we are subtracting the seconds based on the number that they hit on the
long jump so the better they jumped the better their time will be we’re gonna
subtract two seconds and her official time becomes one minute thirty two
seconds do you think you can do better the
second time yeah we’ll see all right for your first round with no spider-man
costume okay no spider-man suit what is your prediction less than a minute it’s
just gold guys less than a minute three two one oh yeah let’s see how clean he

5 things ants can teach us about management | BBC Ideas


Ants and human societies
are similar in many ways. They live in communities numbering
from just a few individuals up to many millions. They can build vast empires
that span the world. They conduct diplomacy
with neighbouring settlements. And they can even go
to war with each other. All the ants have just one single
intent on their mind, and that’s the reproductive
success of the colony. Everything that they do is directed
towards that one aim. Most ant colonies consist of just
one reproductive individual – the queen –
and many non-reproductive workers. And the workers
are actually all female. So they’re a vast sisterhood
who does all the work. Now the title ‘queen’ seems to imply
some kind of political authority – that the queen is telling the workers
what to do at any one moment in time, but in fact it’s completely
self-organised. In a colony of ants,
there are no fixed managers. There are no CEOs or presidents. Everyone is working towards
the common goal. If one ant finds a trace of food, that ant will become,
in that moment, a leader, and get everyone else
to come into that food source. But the modern organisation
is obsessed with hierarchy. Obsessed with managers
and where you are up on the scale, which number or paygrade you are. And what happens is
lots of people lower down spend all their time trying to guess
what their manager wants, or their manager’s manager wants, rather than what’s going to work
for the organisation and the people they serve. When an ant encounters a food source,
for example, what it can do
on the way back to the colony is lay a trail using pheromones – and these are just chemicals
that they can lay on the ground so that when others ants come
along and encounter that trail, they know to follow it
all the way to the food. So this simple process
of positive feedback is surprisingly effective
at finding the shortest path. The idea,
borrowing from the ant world, of actually getting the data, making sure you’re capturing it from the very people
who are on the coalface, so to speak, makes tons of sense, because they’re the ones
with the rich qualitative data to be able to feed that back
into the decision-making. We have to be self-organised. We have to allow people to have
their own intelligence and wisdom and organize around a problem
or a project themselves, rather than always waiting for
someone else to tell them what to do, or for a three-year business
planning cycle to take effect. Just as ants respond immediately
to changes in their environment, say the diminishing
of a foraging patch, and adapt really quickly
to that change, organisations must be able
to do the same. If, by looking at ants for instance, it stimulates our thinking about how we might
try to do things differently, then that’s worth it
in and of itself. I just think you probably
want to start experimenting in a quite small and bounded way –
but yeah, why not? Thanks for watching. Don’t forget to subscribe and click the bell to receive notifications for new videos. See you again soon!

WASP 76b: Hot Jupiter Exoplanet that Rains Iron at Night

WASP 76b: Hot Jupiter Exoplanet that Rains Iron at Night


Hello Space Fans and welcome to another edition
of Space Fan News. In this episode astronomers at the European
Southern Observatory have observed an exoplanet that is tidally locked around it’s star
and because of this has extreme temperatures on the daytime and nighttime side. The temperatures are so hot that on the day
side, iron is a gas and at night that gas condenses into molten iron rain. It seems the more we look for and at exoplanets,
the stranger some of them become. We tend to be really focused on the Earth-like
ones because we like to fantasize that somehow, someday we could live on one of those. But Earth-like planets are elusive compared
to all the others that are out there and this week, astronomers using ESO’s Very large
Telescope and associated instruments have found a really strange exoplanet. The planet is called WASP-76b and it orbits
its star WASP-76 once every 1.81 days. That’s its year folks! The system is located some 640 light years
away in the areas of the sky bounded by the constellation Pisces. WASP-76b itself is what astronomers call a
hot-jupiter, meaning its about the size of jupiter and, well, it’s hot. It’s about1.8 times larger in radius than
Jupiter and is a little less massive (about .9 times the mass of Jupiter). Now a really large planet the size of Jupiter
going around it star once every couple of days is strange enough but because it’s
year is so short, that also means it’s pretty close to the star, which makes it very hot. Being so close also grabs it pretty strongly
to the star. WASP-76 is an F7 star that is about 1.7 times
bigger than our sun and 1.5 times as massive and because of all these factors, WASP-76b
is tidally locked to the star in its orbit around it. Tidally-locked means that the rate at which
the planet rotates matches its orbit around the star making one side of the planet always
facing the star and the other side facing away. So here we have a planet that’s way bigger
and more massive than Jupiter, going around an F7 star – which are known to, among other
things, emit large amounts of UV radiation – going around that star every couple of day
AND it has one side always facing the star and the other facing away… Well that’s a party where you know weird
stuff’s gonna happen. Astronomers looking at this system using ESO’s
VLT and specifically the spectral imager known as ESPRESSO, a fiber optics high resolution
spectrograph, and when they looked at the planet at various spots in the transit (that’s
the part where the planet passes between us and the star), on the day side of the planet
where temperatures were around 2400K, which means the daytime side of this star is comparable
to some of the cooler stars out there. Looking at the spectral images, they were
able to closely follow the neutral iron in the atmosphere as the daytime on the planet
progressed. Because different parts of the planet were
visible to us as the planet went around and correcting for all the motions of the planet
rotation and orbital motion, the team look at what was happening to the iron content
in the atmosphere. They noticed that when they could see more
of the daytime-side disk, they say more Iron and because we’re talking about 2400K, it
had to be gaseous. Then looking at the evening terminator as
it became less visible but was still there, the iron content went down and on the dark
side of the planet and the morning terminator, they couldn’t see any iron. So they concluded that since they could see
neutral iron on the dayside and the evening terminator, but not the nightside and the
morning terminator, the gaseous iron in the atmosphere condensed as it moved to the night
side (or the dark side as I like to say) and since the nighttime temps are still pretty
hot, of around 1600k, that’s still hot enough for iron to be a liquid. And it rains. Iron. Molten Iron. Here’s what they think that would look like. This is iron condensing into rain. This wasn’t in the paper but it makes me
wonder about the oceans on WASP-76b. Would need a helluva boat to sail on molten
seas. Or maybe it’s like a giant version of Mustafar
system in Star Wars. Who knows, we could have just found the birthplace
of Darth Vader. Alright enough of that. I want to thank all Deep Astronomy Patreon
Patrons who keep these episodes coming and I want to thank all of you for watching and
as always Keep Looking Up!

Coronavirus is Not an Excuse to Be Racist | Full Frontal on TBS

Coronavirus is Not an Excuse to Be Racist | Full Frontal on TBS


Tonight, we are going on a weird, wild journey
together, because due to the increasing threat of the coronavirus, we wanted to do the responsible
thing and not have an audience. Okay, we have some people, but they work for
us, and they’re sitting six feet apart as recommended by the CDC. And also because they hate each other. We considered using a laugh track tonight,
but unfortunately the only sound cues we had on hand were the woos from Saved By the Bell
when Zach Morris kissed Kelly Kapowski. We won’t have audience laughter, but we might have my laughter because my writers have added some jokes that I haven’t seen before. Starting now.
I’m Samantha Bee and I am responsible for twenty unsolved murders along the Florida
panhandle— Goddamnit, guys.
I told you that in confidence. Okay fine, the world is ending,
but let’s pretend we’re still gonna have an actual election in November. Who [BLEEP] knows!
Last night, six states voted in the Democratic primary. It was a big night for Joe Biden,
and a weird night for CNN. Bernie Sanders…
Not not not happening right now. Joe Biden Joe Biden is the winner of the Mississippi
primary. Joe Biden carries Mississippi. There we have it right. Ah. Right there. You can
see it. Maybe you can’t see it. Just [BLEEP] make a decision, Deep State! Looks like the crew from CNN is already working
from home. And I don’t blame them. With more than 100,000 cases of coronavirus
worldwide, many leaders are taking extreme but necessary
precautions. Schools in China have been closed for over
a month, Italy is on lockdown, and the governor of New York has ordered a containment zone
in Westchester county, where the state national guard is being deployed
to clean schools and deliver food. It sounds scary, but also like the opening
scene of a very topical porn. It’s where I get all my news. Meanwhile, our president is bravely… denying
anything is wrong. No, I’m not concerned at all. No, I’m not.
We’ve done a great job with it. We’re prepared and we’re doing a great job
with it. It will go away. Just stay calm, it will go
away. Be calm. It’s really working out and a lot
of good things are gonna happen. Anybody that needs a test gets a test. They’re
there. They have the tests. And the tests are beautiful. Rest assured, America: these tests are so
hot, you’ll wanna get them pregnant. That’s not true.
I wish I could knock up a test right now. But there aren’t any.
To date, the U.S. has tested fewer than 5,000 people for COVID-19, which is far behind other
developed countries. The White House is completely mishandling
this very real, very scary pandemic. Last week, the White House overturned the
CDC’s recommendation for seniors to avoid taking flights—a recommendation that would
have benefited a lot of senior citizens, except for my dad, who was this close to making it
into the mile high club. You’ll get there one day, Pops. You’re my hero.
But at least conservatives are… Oh my god. My dad’s gonna die. But at least conservatives are following the president’s terrifying spread of misinformation. And it is this virus which is caused by the Chinese, this Wuhan virus.
The Chinese coronavirus really is Chinese. China did this to the world.
The most encouraging thing is happening out of China who started this whole thing.
Yeah, exactly. The whole thing’s to show that their measures
at containing it have actually worked. Even though they started it and have yet to
apologize. China, we know it’s not your bad, but could
you please send Brian Kilmeade an Edible Arrangement so he’ll shut the [BLEEP] up? Tying coronavirus to China and Chinese people isn’t just a racist dog whistle.
It’s a whole racist orchestra. It’s a mighty mighty racist bosstone.
Which brings me to this important point: the coronavirus is not an excuse to be racist!
I know, I know. Racism is like America’s weighted blanket.
When everything is stressful, nothing makes us feel more secure than treating other people
like trash. At Columbia University, some dillhole wrote
on a blackboard that the library was a “Wuhan virus isolation area.” In Utah, the Shen Yun dance troupe was the victim of a rumor claiming they were carrying
the virus. That’s obviously not true. But if they were, they would carry it beautifully. Good woo! And at a Washington Costco, a worker handing out free samples told an eight-year-old boy
wearing a mask to get away from her because she thought he’d give her the coronavirus.
Are you kidding me? That tray of room-temperature ham samples
probably already has every other disease imaginable after sitting there getting groped by customers
all day. If anything, a little coronavirus might kill
the listeria. Oh right, we also have the sound cue from
growing pains when Boner’s parents kicked him out of the house. Guys, that sucks. Boner died. Sorry. I’m not even laughing. Across the country, fear of the disease is
taking a toll on Asian American-owned businesses. How has coronavirus impacted your business?
Tremendous. Lam says he’s lost 1.5 million dollars and
business is down around 50%. What do you think the reason is? The coronavirus, which is a scare to get infected by Chinese people. Holy shit. That is so stupid. Avoiding Chinese restaurants because you think
every Chinese person has coronavirus? That’s like not going to Ikea because you
think all Swedish people want to burn you alive in a bear suit. Which they do. The media’s use of stereotype-enforcing images can be just as damaging.
Major news outlets have repeatedly misused photos of Asian faces in masks to illustrate
stories about coronavirus, regardless of who or what the story is about.
That’s lazy. Especially because if they dug a little deeper
they’d see that there are dozens of photos of me on Getty wearing face masks that they
could be using. I don’t wear them because they’re effective.
I wear them because I like to try on new chins. Across the country, Asian Americans have been
the victims of racist attacks. In Los Angeles county, a sixteen-year-old
boy was beaten up so badly at school, he had to go to the hospital. In New York, a subway rider verbally harassed and sprayed Febreze on a man he believed to
be Asian. What the [BLEEP]?
The only person you should be afraid of in that situation is the guy who keeps Febreze
on him at all times. Whatever that Febreze is usually for, it is very bad. Businesses are also using fears of coronavirus
to deny service to Asian customers. This week in Plymouth, Indiana, this person
at this Super 8 denied a room to the two Hmong men filming this video. If you’re from China, I need to know. Because of the coronavirus going around. And
anyone from China, I am told, has to be picked up and quarantined for two weeks.
Wyndham hotels, who franchises Super 8, said they’re deeply troubled, and there’s no corporate
policy denying rooms to guests who are Chinese. No one should feel scared to stay there because
they’re Asian. They should feel scared to stay there because
they will probably be eaten out the ass by bed bugs. These aren’t rare, isolated incidents. They’re ubiquitous, dangerous, and so pervasive,
they’ve prompted a CDC official to warn that being Asian is not a risk factor for coronavirus.
Unfortunately, the CDC then had to declare that being Asian is a risk factor for getting
assaulted by racists. COVID-19 is scary, and it’s made even scarier
because our government is mishandling this crisis and conservative media is using Asian
people as scapegoats. The Trump administration is not going to save us. We have to take care of each other. It’s not okay to mistreat people out of fear and panic.
Especially when we’re doing so many other stupid things out of fear and panic. I have spent the last week stockpiling beans and making my own hand sanitizer out of bleach
and lube. Asterisk asterisk. Do not do that.

Don’t Mess With Texas: The Lone Star State’s Tussle with Trump’s Border Wall | Full Frontal on TBS


Welcome to the peaceful Rio Grande valley, located on the tip of Texas’s pendulous dong. Home to quiet border communities, pristine natural beauty, and a good ol’ fashioned Texas shit show! Where Trump’s diverting billions of
dollars from the military to build a 30-foot wall, crushin’ critters and grabbin’ private
property along the way! Yeehaw! Alright, let’s just get to it. Mexico is not paying for it,
but the wall is happening. This is ACLU lawyer David Donatti, whom I met in a wall with a giant hole in it. Look, it’s a freakin’ metaphor, people! Priority number one is construction
in the Rio Grande Valley. But in Texas, the vast majority of our border
lands is owned by private citizens. So Congress has empowered the administration
to do something called a quick take where they take the land,
they build the wall, and they can figure out just compensation later. That’s right, with a quick take— they just take your land, then tell you what they’ll pay for it. So how are Texans taking to government
workers showing up and saying their land’s being
quick tookened? Texas law gives me the right to shoot these people. This is Nayda Alvarez, peaceful border resident, spirited driver, and wannabee Banksy. So how did you end up graffitiing your own roof? You know, after Trump said
we’re building this wall, he comes over to the valley. And I say he’s gonna fly by, and he’s gonna see this. You know he can’t read, right? I just didn’t have a chance to put
my middle finger up there. Just for reference, that would
look something like this. Nayda’s been told that her backyard is
about to get an exciting new addition. The wall’s supposed to go a few feet from us. Just like right here? Yeah. The government has informed
Nayda that her property— which has been in her family for generations— is now condemned. And they’ve sent more than just letters. We had a pervert show up through there. Someone hired by the government. A government pervert? There’s a little camera over there that caught them. Very quickly— Nayda’s camera captured a posse
of trespassing surveyors. One of them spotted the camera
and began a strip-tease, and then… They claim that you threatened to shoot them. I never threatened to shoot anybody. What did you say? I told them I was going to beat
the shit out of them. Oh, okay. Those are two different things! But not everyone can defend
themselves as well as Nayda. That’s because some of them are butterflies. So tell me where we are. You’re at the National Butterfly Center in Mission, Texas. We’re a 100-acre botanical garden planted with host and nectar
plants for butterflies. Butterflies? Surely the Trump administration would want
to protect innocent little butterfl— Actually, no. The government sent contractors here. I found five workmen cutting down our trees. We had no notice. We had given no permission. And I said, you must not understand the three F’s. If you’re not feeding me, fucking me,
and financing me, I don’t listen to you. What if I’m f-interviewing you? You got five minutes. Wow, Texas ladies are tough. So why piss them off? Why take this land to begin with? Because in this part of Texas,
the border is the river, which is made up of a substance
scientists call water. So… What they’re actually doing is they have
to go about a mile inland. And a lot of the United States is actually
going to be behind the border wall. So to wall out foreigners, we just have
to wall out our own citizens. That’s exactly what’s happening. The position of Trump’s wall
will create a no man’s land. In Spanish they call this “tierra de nadie,” or, roughly translated, “we just gave land back to Mexico!” To speed the process, the Trump
administration has ignored dozens of environment regulations. They’re violating the Rivers and Harbors Act, the Clean Water Act, the Solid Waste Disposal Act, the Native American Graves Protection
and Repatriation Act. I’m sorry—they’re building it on
a Native American burial ground? All of this area was once inhabited
by our indigenous peoples, and their remains are throughout the region. On the bright side, it can’t get any worse! I’m kidding. Of course it can! The government’s border wall isn’t the only threat. In November, they started building a private wall
on the banks of the Rio Grande River. A team of Tinder swipe-lefts— yes, that’s Steve Bannon there— raised $20 million on a Go Fund Me, then joined forces with a pro-Trump contractor
to build their own privately funded wall. It’s illegal and stupid to build it
right on the flood plain, so they decided to build it
right on the flood plain. Behold, the private wall! All in here, in this bend in the river, there was hundreds of acres of just
natural riverbank habitat like that. Just wild habitat. Father Roy Snipes is a local priest with
property right next to the private wall. He took me on his boat to
show me what happens when racism meets industrial-
scale arts and crafts. We always thought, well, you couldn’t just bulldoze miles and miles of beautiful riverbank. You couldn’t do that. But they did it. What do you think Jesus would feel about this? That’s a good question. The real moral issue would be demonizing people
who are poor and just struggling to survive. I think you just captured
the entire GOP platform. So, one last question: how will this private wall then connect
to the government wall? Oh, it won’t. It will be a freestanding sculpture. Yep. The private wall will be walled
off by the wall wall, which will also wall off
U.S. territory and citizens, none of whom can really fight back. There’s no invasion. There’s no crisis. It’s just a big shit show that people believe up north. And Nayda would like to confront the emcee
of this shit show, Donald Trump. I would like to see him in the face. I’m telling you, you wouldn’t. I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t want to be alone
with me in the same room. Now that I would like to see. I bet you he’d run out like a chicken. I see an incredibly lucrative pay-per-view
opportunity in the future.

ALL of Spider-Man’s Girlfriends!

ALL of Spider-Man’s Girlfriends!


Okay, look. Spider-Man has dated around a whole lot and
I decided to take it upon myself to look through about six decades of comic books in order
to decode the massive web that is Peter Parker’s love life. Oh god. So in order to make this video not like an
hour long, we’re going to need to set up some ground rules because yeah, I’ve read
all of those same lists online and they are really not that good. It seems like they were written by some people
that read a few Wiki articles and called it a day. So here’s what we’ve have on the table. As always with this channel, I am ONLY going
to be talking about the mainstream Earth-616 continuity. Additionally, this is strictly going to focus
on women that Peter has had significant romances with in the comics, not just one off dates
or hookups. This means that no, I am not counting the
time that Peter went on a date with Carol Danvers or the time that he went on a date
with Sue Storm WHILE HE WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL. This also doesn’t include women that Peter
shared a single kiss with or women that just have crushes on him. So that means no Liz Allen, Officer DeWolfe,
or Silver Sable. Finally, even if Peter and his partner don’t
explicitly call each other boyfriend and girlfriend, I’m counting it if they spent a significant
amount of time together. I also reserve the right to mention love interests
that I just think are interesting because you know what? It’s my video. I THINK this covers all of my bases so people
won’t go in my comments saying “Um actually!”, but who am I kidding? People are going to anyway. But before we get too far into things, I want
to give a big thank you to our sponsor for today’s video, Manscaped, and yeah, I can
probably go into detail about The Lawn Mower 2.0 or The Plow or their other amazing products. However, I really want to say that the Crop
Preserver ball deodorant is amazing because at the time of this recording, it is summer
in Texas and this has saved my nether regions on more than one occasion. I think that it maybe might not be much of
a coincidence that last time I promoted these guys, I had a girlfriend and now I have a
fiancée. So if you want to get in on this for yourself
go ahead and go to Manscaped.com and make sure you use the code COMICD20 at checkout
for 20% off. The Perfect Package 2.0 includes everything
that you saw here and it is definitely worth the investment. I am a big fan of these products and you’re
going to be hearing about them a lot more in the future on this channel, but anyway. Back to the video. Peter’s first girlfriend was Betty Brant,
a secretary at the Daily Bugle. They hit it off when Peter checked in on her
after the Vulture attacked the office and just LOOK at Peter’s swag here. The two dated for a good while, but Betty
started to get jealous of Liz Allen, Peter’s former crush who started to actually develop
feelings of her own for Parker. Despite Peter having moved on from his obsession
with Liz and repeatedly explaining to Betty that he wasn’t interested in her, Betty’s
jealousy ended up being too much and she broke up with Peter to start dating a Daily Bugle
reporter named Ned Leeds who she would eventually marry. Fun fact, Peter and Mary Jane (who I will
of course be talking about later in the video) were best man and maid of honor respectively
at Betty and Ned’s wedding. Anyway, it’s probably for the best that
Peter and Betty didn’t keep dating considering that Brant was really looking for a steady
guy who worked a good, non dangerous job. If they stayed together then Peter would never
be able to tell her that he was Spider-Man and keeping a secret that big is SUPER unhealthy
for a relationship. Yet, they stayed close friends well into adulthood. With Betty out of the picture, Peter was free
to date once again and now that he had moved on to college, this would be the perfect opportunity. On his first day of school, Peter’s Aunt
May got sick and was hospitalized. He was completely oblivious to the world around
him and his new classmates thought that he was stuck up as a result. This included a beautiful woman named Gwen
Stacy. However, Gwen saw this cold shoulder as a
challenge and frequently flopped between fawning over Peter and hating him. Now ever since high school, Aunt May kept
trying to set Peter up with their neighbor’s niece, Mary Jane Watson, but Peter kept avoiding
the meetup. For years, Mary Jane was a punchline in the
comics. She was just this unseen background character
until she finally showed up and delivered that iconic line. “Face it, tiger. You just hit the jackpot.” From here, Gwen and MJ would both casually
date Peter and his best friend / roommate, Harry Osborn, but over time, Mary Jane ended
up getting more serious with Harry and Parker did the same with Gwen. Sadly, Gwen’s father was killed after saving
a kid from rubble that fell during a fight between Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus and
she briefly moved to London while she was in mourning. Now here’s where things get a little bit
tricky. In 2004, there was an infamous storyline called
Sins Past which added some really… weird stuff to this situation. See, it turns out that before leaving for
London, Gwen had actually hooked up with Harry Osborn’s father, Norman A.K.A. the Green
Goblin all while in the middle of dating Parker. Peter and Gwen specifically didn’t do the
deed, but yep, she and Gobby definitely did, with the act resulting in Gwen becoming pregnant
with twins that also had an accelerated growth rate due to Norman’s mutated genetics. Because comics. Gwen had the children while she lived abroad
and they were stolen by Norman, but the rest of that story is probably better saved for
another video. With all of that out of the way, Gwen moved
back to New York and resumed her relationship with Peter until she was tragically kidnapped
by Norman, now retconned to be after her because of the threat that she posed to him regarding
their children. This led to one of the most important moments
in all of Spider-Man’s history with Green Goblin tossing Gwen off of a bridge and Spidey
trying to save her, but because of a miscalculation, the sudden jolt of Gwen being grabbed by Spider-Man’s
webbing resulted in her neck being snapped. This tragedy stuck with Peter, but he grew
closer with Mary Jane who was there to comfort him during this trying time. Also going through a rough time was MJ’s
boyfriend, Harry, due to his father seemingly being killed during the same confrontation
with Spider-Man. Because of this, Harry became obsessed with
killing Spider-Man and as a result, pushed Mary Jane away which only brought her closer
to Peter. They finally got serious and Pete actually
proposed to her which she rejected. Yeah, the two of them have been pretty on
and off for years, especially since MJ couldn’t always handle Parker’s life as Spider-Man
which she had known about since before they even met so of course, we will be back. In between flings with Mary Jane, Peter dated
a woman named Cissy Ironwood who I’m sure you’ve never never heard of and for good
reason. She pretty much only existed to be some random
girl that Peter casually went out with only to get attacked by Doctor Strange who was
a werewolf at the time. Because comics. She showed up just a little bit more only
to ditch Parker in order to hit on The Beast who was visiting campus. Then there’s Debra Whitman, a secretary at
the university when Peter was a teacher’s assistant. She was instantly into Peter, but he was too
busy to really notice her. They did end up casually dating later, but
Peter was like the worst to her. He was constantly bailing on Deb because of
Spider-Man related activities, he wouldn’t use his newspaper contacts in order to help
her uncle who was being threatened, and Peter instantly forgot about her when he saw that
his new neighbor was hot. I mean look at this. “Oh, yeah. Got a date with Debbie. Deborah what’s-her-name. Whitman.” Dude, Deb was so good to Peter that he once
dropped by her apartment completely unannounced when he was in pain after a fight. Naturally, Debra let Peter stick around, nursed
him back to health, and even made him a big ass breakfast. Did Peter say thank you or even EAT the breakfast? NO! When Parker finally started to take notice
of Debra, it was too late because she was dating a jock named Biff Rifkin, a man with
the most jock sounding name imaginable. Even while she was dating Biff, Debra was
still super into Peter, but things got a bit complicated when she started to figure out
that he was Spider-Man, but her therapist wrote it off as schizophrenia. In an unusual approach, the therapist sought
out Peter and asked him to pretend to be Spider-Man so that he could reveal his identity to Debra,
hoping that this unorthodox shock therapy would snap her out of her “delusion”. Although Parker initially refused, he came
around to the idea which… actually worked. This was also the push that Debra needed to
leave town and finally divorce her abusive husband back home, which yeah, it turns out
was also a thing that was going on in her life. We didn’t see much more of Debra until Civil
War when Peter publicly revealed his identity, prompting her to write a book called “Two
Faced: How Peter Parker Ruined My Life”. Little harsh, but considering that the publisher
(owned by the Daily Bugle because of course it is) had her embellish the truth, but part
of me feels like canceling Peter is at least a LITTLE justified considering just how he
treated Deb. But hey, at least he never hit her like he
did Mary Jane that one time which YEAH, that actually happened. Now much more importantly of Parker’s relationships
is Felecia Hardy A.K.A. Black Cat. She’s a cat burglar who flirted and made out
with Spider-Man a bit, but not much else. However, after tussling a couple of times,
she promised to go straight, albeit after one last job. When that didn’t work out, she decided to
be extra extra and exclaimed that she would rather die than go to jail. Bye, Felecia. Of course, this didn’t stick and when Black
Cat finally came back around, she and Spider-Man started dating proper and even became crime
fighting partners. While all of this was going well, Felecia
made it very clear that she was attracted to Spider-Man and not Peter Parker. This was a big reversal of the normal problems
that his relationships brought, but it did end up being an issue though and the two broke
up as a result. Of course, Peter and Mary Jane are definitely
soulmates so they ended up getting back together, Peter proposed a second time, they got married,
almost had a kid when Mary Jane got pregnant, was poisoned, and had a stillbirth. Wow… that got really dark. Oh, but just you wait. It gets darker. See, MJ was seemingly killed in a plane explosion,
but in all actually, she was kidnapped by a stalker. Yep. Now during this time of apparent death, Peter
had another love interest. As Gwenpool would say “Remember that time
you dated Gwen Stacy’s cousin? Because I do! I remember all of that.” Jill Stacy moved to New York and became friends
with Peter and MJ, getting so close that she ended up actually becoming Mary Jane’s BEST
friend. Oh, and she canonically looks like Gwen Stacy,
but with black hair. There were some romantic hints with Peter,
but that was it. However, following MJ’s apparent death,
Jill started getting uncomfortably close with Peter, making some pretty obvious moves. Let me make this very clear. Jill Stacy started catching Peter, the ex-boyfriend
of her dead cousin, on the rebound when his wife seemingly died who also happened to be
her best friend. Now that is some soap opera level nonsense! Things never got too serious between them
since Peter was wrapped up with mourning his dead wife because yeah, of course, but once
Peter rescued MJ from her stalker, Jill basically vanished from comics as a whole, even though
Peter and Mary Jane separated immediately afterwards. Peter and Mary Jane’s relationship was all
over the place with it ultimately ending when they made a literal deal with the devil and
sold their marriage to the demon, Mephisto, in order to save a dying Aunt May in the infamous
storyline “One More Day”. Instantly following this new timeline, Peter
met a forensic scientist named Carlie Cooper, the best friend of Harry Osborn’s new girlfriend,
but as he was distracted by his newly ex-girlfriend via demon, Mary Jane, who was also at the
party, this didn’t go anywhere. I swear to god, this is going to be important
later since they do end up dating, but first, we need to take a really weird and complicated
detour. Okay so one of my favorite comic writers,
Jason Aaron, wrote this mini series about Spider-Man and Wolverine being hurled through
time after a group of bad guys were robbing Time Diamonds from a bank. Because comics. As a part of this, a woman named Sara Bailey,
one of the bank’s tellers, got mixed up in the time travel shenanigans as well. It’s not really dived into much since most
of the book revolves around Spidey and Wolverine’s dynamic, but when the three of them got trapped
in the old west, Peter and Sara ended up having a serious relationship, complete with that
classic act of carving their initials into a tree. Peter was actually going to propose to Sarah
with an inert Time Diamond, but it reactivated and sent everyone back to the beginning of
this whole time nonsense at the bank. After stopping the robbers, Peter wanted to
resume his relationship with Sara, but she didn’t remember anything that happened,
just Peter and Logan. Cut to a sad shot of Peter sitting against
the tree that he had carved into which was miraculously still standing years later and…
that’s all we heard about things. Kind of underwhelming, but this is still canon. Okay, back to Carlie. She and Peter officially start dating when
he asked her out… at a Halloween party while she was dressed as his ex-girlfriend, the
Black Cat. Honestly, their dynamic was really cute. She’s into roller derby and tries to teach
Peter, but because he needs to pretend to not have super powers, he intentionally fails
in a spectacular fashion. Oh, she also got drunk one time and got a
Spider-Man tattoo. During an event called Spider-Island, Carlie
ended up getting spider powers along with most of Manhattan and Peter even pretended
like he just got them as well. However, Carlie noticed that he was suspiciously
really good at using these powers and started to put two and two together. After everything went back to normal, Carlie
confronted Peter with this revelation and broke up with him on the spot for having lied
to her this entire time. Considering that his double life as Spider-Man
is why they broke up, that tattoo must be REALLY awkward. Yeah, so after this, Peter’s love life was
practically non-existent. Not like he’d have much time to date anyway
since he and his long time enemy, Doctor Octopus, swapped bodies. So yeah, this next relationship doesn’t
REALLY count since it wasn’t Peter’s consciousness, but people would get mad at me in the comments
if I didn’t at least blaze through it super quick. Anna-Maria Marconi is a brilliant scientist
that Otto started dating when he enrolled back in college since he was pissed that Peter
had never gotten his doctorate. The two hit it off and had an obnoxiously
cute relationship to the point where Ock actually intended to propose to her. Of course, Peter eventually got his body back
and was immediately really bad at keeping his alter-ego a secret from Anna-Maria. Parker did come clean both about being Spider-Man
and the entire body swap thing so naturally, their relationship had to end since Anna-Maria
literally fell in love with a different person. To make things more complicated, Peter released
a woman named Cindy Moon from a bunker almost immediately after getting his body back. She was bitten by the same radioactive spider
as Peter and is a special Spider-Totem called “The Bride”. As a part of this, she and Peter have a compulsive
need to hook up whenever they’re in the vicinity of each other which obviously made things
really awkward for Anna-Maria who was still living with Peter. Cindy ended up getting her own super persona,
Silk, and grew into a solid character in her solo books which basically had her strike
out on her own away from Peter and really, outside of being a spider character, she has
nothing to do with the Spider-Man series as a whole. Moving on, when Doc Ock was in charge of Peter’s
body, he created a company called Parker Industries. Well this ended up getting insanely successful
and the company went international. For a time, Peter was dating Lian Tang, an
engineer from Parker Industries Shanghai who helped design a super high tech Spider-Mobile. This was great and all until it was revealed
that Lian was also working for the terrorist organization, Zodiac, and was feeding them
information in exchange for cancer medication for her dying mother. When she was found out, Parker gave her a
second chance at the company, but obviously their relationship ended as quickly as it
started. Also working with Parker Industries was Bobbi
Morse A.K.A. Mockingbird who was the company’s liaison
to S.H.I.E.L.D. Peter eventually asked her out with ZERO game,
leading to Aunt May of all people having to step in. It’s crazy that throughout all of his history,
Mockingbird is like the only superhero that Spidey ever dated and it was actually pretty
cool that they occasionally fought crime together. When Parker Industries eventually shut down,
Bobbi let Peter crash at her place and even sleep in her infamous “Ask me about my feminist
agenda” shirt. Eventually though, Peter being a complete
loser got on Bobbi’s nerves and they broke up after realizing that they really had nothing
in common. Finally, I know this is kind of a low note
to end on, but this brings us to Rebecca London, a comedian that Spidey rescued who asked him
out by throwing her business card at him. Easily the best part of this is when Spider-Man
showed up to their date in his costume, but like with a suit jacket over it. There’s really not really much more to this
considering that Peter was busy with superhero stuff and Rebecca got a boyfriend in the meantime,
but I wanted you to see the double spider suit so you’re welcome. At the time of this recording, Peter and Mary
Jane are back to the status quo and are happily together and I REALLY hope that it sticks
because I do not want to have to make this video again after the literal weeks that I
have spent researching all of this nonsense. But if you liked this video then why not consider
subscribing, or even watching another one? And if you want to know about Peter’s web-shooters
(the actual ones, not a euphemism) then check out the video that I did all about them. I gave the same level of obsessive detail
in that as I did on this one. And also, I do want to give a big thank you
to the voice cast that I had on this video. It’s a lot better than me trying to pretend
to be multiple characters, especially ones that are different genders from me. I went ahead and gave all their credits down
there in the description below. But anyway, I hope you learned at least a
little something new, and hopefully, I’ll see you next time.

Deepest State | Full Frontal with Samantha Bee | TBS

Deepest State | Full Frontal with Samantha Bee | TBS


[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
– Hi. I’m Samantha Bee. Welcome to “Full Frontal.” Ever since voters invited
a bunch of state-smashing, wall-building, America
first, Breitbart afficionados to slither out of their
swamp and run the country for a while, we’ve been
introduced to so much of their subculture’s
fascinating slang, one angry, insomniac rage tweet at a time. This week we learned yet
another cool, new phrase. See if you can spot it. We’ve been warning you about
the deep state, Obama holdover government bureaucrats, who
are hell bent on destroying this president. We’re talking about
the intelligence community deep state. The deep state bureaucracy
and the deep state media. REPORTER: –left-wing
deep state forces. Deep state conspiracy. The deep state
that we talk about– they’re out for blood. The deep state is so deeply
buried in its deep-y deepness, Sean Hannity had to pull it
from the depths of his ass. [LAUGHTER] Just to be clear, that was
the nation’s number one cable “news station,” mainstreaming
one of the far right and far left’s favorite
conspiracy fever dreams straight into our president’s
gullible eye holes. PAUL SPERRY: His main
concern right now is Obama. I mean, the guy set up a
bunker just down the street from the White House. He’s got a mansion. He’s got offices. He’s got the shadow White House,
JUST within two miles of Trump. Obama could spark something on
the order of a civil war here. God, you guys get
so upset every time a black guy moves into
the wrong neighborhood. [LAUGHTER] The deep state is like polio. It exists, just not
in America right now. The deep state, the term,
comes from Turkey and Egypt. It’s from authoritarian
context, and it usually refers to groups that perform
false flag operations, assassinate people. The deep state is an alt-right
term, which is misapplied. It’s a security apparatus
that actually runs the state, and the democracy
is just a fig leaf. Trump is trying to
blame any of his failures on this sort of
shadowy bureaucracy. It’s a very dark
view of what are, effectively, career bureaucrats. Career bureaucrats
who are thrilled to finally have something
interesting to put on their JDate profiles. Turkey and Egypt have
shadowy government assassins. America’s sinister junta
is an insubordinate park ranger tweeting that
climate change is real. Traitor! Purge her! When asked if the White House
really sees this deep state as a threat, Sean
Spicer took a break from slowly disintegrating
before our eyes to share his deep thoughts. I don’t think it should
come as any surprise that there are people that
burrowed into government during eight years of
the last administration and may have believed
in that agenda, and want to continue to seek it. “Burrowed into government.” He wants you to believe
that these rogue, deep state infiltrators are poison-blooded
mole people, and not just bland paper pushers who lucked into
a government job with benefits. But contrary to a President
Trump’s unofficial security briefings, the
federal bureaucracy is not a left wing shadow
government run from the Obamas’ kitchen in Kalorama. Federal employees
are almost evenly split between Republicans
and Democrats. The other 16%, of course,
are area 51 employees, who have different political
parties on their home planet. Wake up, sheeple. If federal employees
are chatting on signal more than usual,
it’s because they’re terrified. Think of them as passengers on
a bus that’s now being driven by a feral, paranoid monkey. They’re not trying to kick
him out of the driver’s seat. They know we chose the
monkey to be the bus driver because Hillary Clinton
used email and was a woman, and they respect that. They’re just trying to
turn the wheel slightly, while the monkey
is masturbating, so we don’t run over a cliff. And frankly, even the monkey
should be in favor of that. By the way, some experts
say that the problem isn’t necessarily that
the state is so deep. It’s that Trump’s talent
pool is so shallow. Well, the cool thing
about the government is, it gives you an option, if
you’re the new administration, for putting your
stamp on the agencies, which is to put your
people in the agencies– to appoint a Secretary,
an Undersecretary, a Deputy Undersecretary. President Trump’s
administration, largely, has not done that. You can’t really blame these
agencies for resisting you, or blame a deep
state, if you haven’t put your own people in to
actually run the agencies, yet. There are, what,
about 2,000 jobs, political appointees, that
have still not been filled. Look, those jobs
will get filled. Just as soon as Mike
Flynn and Rudy Giuliani get busy cranking
out some more sons. Until then, there’s
nobody running the shop. The intelligence agencies are
leaking like Nana’s depends after three pots of
Sanka, and it’s driving team Trump clinically insane. Donald Trump is the victim. His campaign is the victim. His transition
team is the victim. His surrogates are the victim. Yeah. Why can’t a white male
billionaire with an army ever catch a fucking break? [LAUGHTER] Panicked hyperbole aside,
I agree that things are not going awesome. It’s not healthy for
a country’s president and intelligence
apparatus to be fighting like the Real Housewives. But perhaps we should
consider these leaks the phlegm of democracy. [COUGH] They’re a sign that
something is very wrong, yes, but also that your
system is fighting it, just the way it’s supposed to. What’s more troubling
is that the deep state can be whatever the person
in power wants it to be. The deep state is Barack Obama
wire-tapping Trump’s microwave, and it’s the agencies who can’t
find evidence of the tapping. It’s anyone who ruins Donald
Trump’s perfect presidency by sabotaging him in the press. It’s the analysts whose
facts disagree with his. It could even be
the universities that churn out operatives
for the secret state within a state. OK, confession. I, myself, am a
proud alumna of Deep State, where I
majored in Un-American Activities and Spanish. I even lettered in
date rape self-defense. Still got my jacket. Go Fighting Moles! [SHOUTING AND CHEERING] [APPLAUSE] There’s my Deep Staters. There they are. [WHOOPING] What do you say, fellas? We gonna beat Electoral
College this year? [GRUNTING] Clear eyes, dark
arts, can’t lose. We’ll be right back. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] [MUSIC PLAYING]

decrease in to the third and second to last and then a regular half double into
that last I’ll meet you guys back once we make our way back down to this end
and we are back we have just made our way all the way down with our third row
leaving the last three loops and we’re going to be doing our decreases together
it’s just the lighting a little bit once when we get here into the third and
second-to-last we’re gonna be doing our decrease of two back loop double
crochets so yarn over insert into that third to last yarn over pull through
into that second-to-last yarn over pull through we should have four loops not
three four loops on our hook we’re gonna yarn over pull through all four once
when we have that prepare for a half double crochet and then put one half
double crochet into that last loop and then the way that I’m doing it is
optional you guys can put your back loop double crochet decreases just in the
last two loops but with the detail that we’re gonna go in with we’re going to
have to go in with single crochets and what I actually don’t like it when
single crochets try to grab on to this decrease because then it ends up pulling
it and then there leaves a gap so this part is completely up to you guys
whatever is easier or whatever you guys are used to but other than that it’s
pretty much the same thing we’re just gonna do a chain above to flip our work
prepare for a half double crochet go into that first back loop insert pull
through next loop insert pull through yarn over pull through all four we are
going to be doing decreases only on this side putting back loop half double
crochets all the way down once we get down to this blunt and keep it blunt so
don’t do any decreases do a chain up of two flipper work and do back loop half
double crochets back down and we’re gonna keep going back and forth like
this until we have a size that can fit from where the front of our cardigan is
going to be to mid underarm so I’m actually gonna keep going until I have
about 16 rows or six-and-a-half inches or 17 centimeters then I’ll meet you
guys back in the next clip to show you guys what it looks like
now that we are all finished up with one of our front panels we’re actually going
to make a second that is exactly the same and then once when we have our
second panel now I can start working on the back which is going to be fairly
simple for the first two rows we’re only going to be doing a decrease and the
rest of that is going to be solid back loop half double crochets but how we
start that off is by counting out the short side of our front panel because
this is where our back is going to be counting out the same amount of loops
that we have and then making a chain of that same number count so I have 55
loops for that shorter side of our front panel so I’m going to start off by
making a chain of 55 now that we have our chain we’re gonna block off that
last chain do a chain up of two that counts as a half double we’re gonna
prepare for a half double then insert our hook into that loop that we blocked
off or the third chain from our hook with a regular half double and from here
we’re going to keep doing half doubles all the way down until we have just
three loops left because we are going to be doing a decrease into the third and
second to last and then from there we’re going to be doing another row of
decrease and then we’ll move on from there we’ve made out all the way down
our chain and we have left the last three chains because we’re going to be
doing a decrease into the third and second to last so how we’re going to
start this off is prepare for a half double and insert our hook into that
third to last loop yarn over pull through into that second-to-last here
and over pull through yarn over pull through all four that is our decrease
and then from here you just have one regular half double crochet into that
last loop and that is our decrease for this portion we’re going to be doing one
more row of decreasing so let’s see that together we’re gonna do a chain up of to
flip our work prepare for a half double crochet and then into that first back
loop we’re gonna insert pull through second back loop insert pulls through
yarn over pull through all four and then from here we’re just gonna keep doing
back loop half double crochets going all the way down our chain and then also
making sure that this portion that we have goes across our back as well and
then I’ll meet you guys back once when we are ready to just add in our last two
rows for this portion because we’re gonna have to add the two rows of
increases so that it matches these decreases that we have around here so
that it can match our front panel so go ahead and do that in the next clip I’ll
let you guys know how many I have so we have made our way back
around and we have finished going in with the main portion of our back and
what we’re gonna do from here is just do two rows of increases to match these two
rows of decreases that we have on the side you guys it just want to want to
make sure that your decreases and your increases are on the same side because
it’s pretty subtle but what you guys want to do from here depending on where
you ended you’re either going to start off with doing an increase of two back
loop half double crochet or if you’re like me you’re gonna go all the way back
down with back loop half double crochet leaving the last loop so that we can do
an increase together but either way I will be working my way down and then
I’ll meet you guys back in the next clip to show you guys how to do an increase
of two back loop half double crochets so I’ve made it all the way down to my last
back loop that we have right here and all we’re gonna do is to an increase of
two back loop half double crochets so this is pretty simple
all we’re gonna do is go into that last loop with one half double and then two
half double and once when I have my increase of two into this row what we’re
gonna do is do one more row of increases unless if you guys have more decreases
on the other side then you guys are going to want to make sure that that is
even but once when we get here we have our chain above two we’re gonna prepare
for a half double crochet and then go into this first back loop with two back
loop half double crochets and that is our increase for this row and from here
we’re just gonna go all the way down with back loop half double crochets once
when I reach my end I’m gonna do a chain up of one and cut and then I can attach
the front panels onto this back so we just finished up going in with our back
piece and the next thing we’re gonna do is attached our front panels and the
first thing I’m going to want to do before we get to actually attaching them
is making sure that the blunt sides are on the top together and also making sure
that this shorter end that we have is along the outside so that it matches
where we started doing our increases or decreases depending on what side you’re
going into for your back portion but other than that the first thing we’re
going to do is just go across with single crochet across our shoulder
portion first so what we’re gonna do is grab our same six millimeter hook insert
that into this corner loop and then also into the corner loop for the back panel
we’re going to make a slipknot insert that onto our hook and then we’re gonna
pull through a chain up one to secure once when we have that we’re going to be
putting just one single crochet into each of these side half double crochets
making sure that we’re going in through the front and the back panel at the same
time so let’s just do the first few together this is the first side half
double crochet that we have so we’re going to insert it into this front panel
and then find this next side single crochet into the back panel and then
find this next side half double crochet and then insert that and then from here
single crochet once when we have that we have our first section all pinned up so
let’s do just one more together into this next side half double crochet
insert and in through the back piece next side half double crochet insert and
then single crochet we’re just gonna keep doing this all the way across until
we don’t have any more of these loops left to go into and then we’re gonna do
the same thing on the other side alrighty so we have just finished up
seaming up this little shoulders chunk that we have right here shoulder chunk
shoulder chunk that we have right here and then now we’re going to try this on
and figure out where we want our arm holes to be I want my sleeves to be a
little bit thinner so I did insert my stitch marker into the 21st loop or that
is about 7 inches or 18 centimeters from the top and that is a fairly thin and
skinny sleeve but you guys can make it longer or shorter whatever you guys want
or if you guys are coming in from the bottom
I have 35 single crochets marked off but once when we have this all we’re gonna
do is the same thing that we did up here we’re gonna take our same six millimeter
hook insert our hook into that corner and then insert our hook into the back
panels quarter insert our yarn onto our hook pull through once when we have that
we’re just going to single crochet going all the way up until we hit our stitch
marker do a chain up of one and cut then do the same thing on the other side okay
so we are all back with a very cute vest we could leave it like this if you
wanted but we are not going to for tutorials sake what we’re gonna do now
is start working on the bottom detail but the first thing we’re gonna have to
do is go into the row of single crochet just to clean up the bottom a little bit
so that once we go on with our secondary color that is also
just as clean so what we’re going to do is insert our hook into any one of the
bottom corners doesn’t quite matter which one insert our yarn onto our hook
pull through to a chain up of one to secure and then once we have this we are
going to go all the way around the front panel to the back all the way around to
this front panel but this is all going to be with a row of single crochets and
we’re going to be alternating between one single crochet two two one two and
so let’s just get that first sequence started together let’s insert our hook
into that first side half double and go in with just one single crochet once we
have that we’re gonna go into this next side half double with two single
crochets let’s do that together there’s one there is two once when we have that
our next side half double is one single crochet the one after that is two single
crochet there is one there is two and then just keep alternating just like
that going all the way across down our back down our back across our back and
then down to this front panel and then I’ll meet you guys back so I’ve just
finished up going in with our single crochets along the entirety of our
bottom that we have and the next thing we’re gonna have to do is a little
unconventional but stick with me for a second go ahead and try this on and then
you’re going to measure out from the bottom of our best that’s what we’re
gonna call it for now from the bottom of our vest down to
where we want the bottom of the lapel to be because that’s gonna be the chain
length up we’re gonna need to make with our secondary color right now I have
went ahead and already measured my now I’m gonna go ahead and start off by
making a chain of 15 or that comes out to about 4 inches or 10 centimeters now
once when we have our chain we’re going to be inserting it into one of these
corner loops it doesn’t matter which one because we’re gonna go around the entire
thing anyways so we’re going to insert go into yarn over pull through
everything and then from here we’re gonna go all the way across just putting
one single crochet into every single crochet that we already have making our
way down to this end once we make our way down to this and we’re going to be
making another chain of however many chains we started off with on this side
because we do need our lapels to be the same length so I’m gonna go all the way
around all the way down to here and that I’ll
meet you guys back so I can do my chain out of 15 so I just made it all the way
around with our little lapel link that we have this little 15 inch chain that
we have on both sides and then once when we have this we can go in with our
bottom herringbone border so all that is is well so all that is is just doing
hearing bones but once when we get to this little corner that we have right
here we’re going to be doing a decrease of three herringbone stitches right here
but other than that we’re gonna go all the way around with herringbone another
decrease right here and herringbone down so let’s get that started together we’re
gonna lock off that last chain do a chain up – that counts as a half double
crochet we’re going to prepare for a herringbone stitch and then insert our
hook into that loop that we just blocked off or the third loop from our hook
we’re gonna insert our hook into there we should have three loops on our hook
we’re gonna yarn over pull through one once we get here we should have three
loops on our hook we’re gonna pull that first strand underneath our second
strand but if it’s a little tough like that
you are more than welcome to grab that middle strand and then just pull that
over that first strand that’s right next to the hook once and we have that we’re
going to yarn over pull through one yarn over pull through two let’s do this
again together prepare for a herringbone stitch which
is just a yarn over go into that next loop yarn over pull through that loop we
should have two loops on our hook we’re going to pull that first strand let’s
try that again we’re gonna pull that first ring
underneath our second strand yarn over pull through one yarn over pull through
two we’re gonna keep doing this all the way down until we get to the loop that
is right before this first loop that we have that’s connected into the body and
we’re going to be doing a decrease of one two and three herringbone stitches
so I meet you guys back in just a little bit so we’ve just done our herringbone
stitches going up our chain we left the last loop we now have the first loop
that we have that’s going into the body and then the second loop right here so
what we’re gonna do is yearn over insert into that last loop that we have into
our chain yarn over pull through you may have to twist our work a little bit but
then we’re going to go into that next available loop that we have which is the
first loop that’s going in to the body insert pull through and then into that
next loop as well insert pull through once we have this we should have one two
three four five loops on our hook we’re gonna take that first loop and then pull
it underneath those next three so we’re gonna pull through 1 2 3 2 loops on our
hook yarn over pull through one yarn over pull through 2 and then from there
we’re just gonna go all the way down doing herringbone stitches until we get
to the same spot on the other side down here so another decrease of 3 into 1 2 3
and then continue doing your herringbones down and I’ll meet you guys
back once we get to the end of this row once we made our way all the way down
with our first row of herringbone stitches where we did decreases of 3
into each of these corners every other row is going to have a decrease of 3 so
since we’re working into the next row of herringbone stitches and the previous
one had a decrease of 3 this one will not so all we’re going to do is do a
chain up of 2 that counts as a half double we’re going to prepare for a
herringbone go into that first stitch yarn over pull through pull that first
loop underneath our second loop yarn over pull through one yarn over pull
through two and then keep doing regular herringbone stitches going all the way
down no decrease into the second row and keep going all the way around once we
reach this end once when we get over here we’re going to do a chain up of two
flip-out work and then since we’re working our way back we will be doing a
decrease of 3 into this section and then keep going back and forth just like that
until we get the link that we want for this little bottom herringbone band and
I’m gonna keep going for a total of six rows or two and a half inches or 6
centimeters so we are back and we have just finished up going in with our
bottom hearing band row and just to let you guys know I went in with a total of
6 rows not including the first single crochet row just 6 herringbone rows and
then the height of that is a total of two and a half inches or 6 centimeters
and now we can start working on the sleeve and I got a little excited and
did one sweep on my own so now we’re gonna get started on the other one and
with this one it’s actually gonna be a little bit different than we do our
regular sleeves so let’s hang out together for just a little bit once when
we have all this done go ahead and try this on and then figure out the length
of the sleeve that you guys want just let you guys know I want my sleeve to be
about 18 inches or 46 centimeters so I’m gonna start off by making a chain
60 so I’m going to take my same six millimeter hook that we’ve been using
I’m first going to insert that into this last loop that we have into our scene
and this is going to be where we start off our chain so I’m going to make a
chain of 60 now that we have our chain up of 60 what we’re going to do is block
off that last chain do a chain up of two that counts as a half double crochet
we’re going to prepare for a half double and insert our hook into that loop that
we blocked off or the third loop from our hook and then from there we’re just
going to be putting one half double crochet into every chain that we have
going back down leaving the last chain because we’re going to be doing an
increase of two into there together we’ve just made it all the way down with
our first row of half double crochets and we left that last loop for ourselves
so that we can do an increase of two together so what we’re gonna do from
here is prepare for a half double insert our hook into that last loop or we’re
gonna be putting one half double then we’re gonna go it with just more into
that same loop and then that is our increase once when we have that we’re
going to be taking a look at one side of our armhole we’re gonna count up one
available loop two and then slip stitch into that second to close off this row
once when we have that we’re going to slip stitch up the next to available
loops to work our way up to the next row flip our work and do back loop half
double crochets while maintaining an increase into that first loop that’s
right next to our armhole slit so let’s do that together we’re gonna prepare for
a half double insert pull through pull through three that’s our first one and
then into that same back loop one more half double and that is our increase
that’s right next to our slit and then what we’re gonna do from here is do one
back loop half double into every loop once we make it down to the end we’re
gonna do a chain above to flip and then work our way back up but when we’re
working our way back up towards our work for every other row we’re going to be
slip stitching into the next available loop and then just slip stitch into the
next and we’re doing that because this is a half double whereas it’s right in
between a double crochet and a single crochet so we want to combat either
stretching it too much by only going into every other slip stitch or making
it way too big by only going into every single loop that we have so we’ll make
our way down come back up and then I’ll show you guys what to do from there so
you just made our way back down to our third row of our back loop half double
crochets and now we’re going to be slip stitching just into the next available
loop to close off this row so how we’re going to do that is prepare for a half
double into that last back loop we’re going to be going in with an increase of
two back loop half double and those are our two half doubles once when we have
that since we’re into our third row we’re going to slip stitch into that
next available loop so we have something in this one we’re going to go up to the
next one and close off that row whereas before we
were counting up two loops and then slip stitching into the second and now that
we’re here we’re gonna do the same thing for the next row just slip stitch up one
loop flip our work and then we’re just going to keep alternating like that
between counting up two loops and slip stitching into the second verses what we
just did which is just slip stitching into the next loop and then slip
stitching up just one loop to start off the next row but once when we have that
we’re just gonna keep working all the way down like that alternating between
one loops to two where we slip stitch we’re gonna keep doing that all the way
up until we hit this shoulder seam that we have and then we can do the same
thing that we are doing here but in Reverse so instead of doing increases
we’re going to be doing decreases so I’ll meet you guys back once when we
work our way all the way up to here and then we can get started on the next part
together so I’ve just made our way all the way up to our shoulder seam and then
what we’re going to do from here is do the same thing that we’re doing here but
instead of increases we’re going to be doing decreases and we’re gonna maintain
doing the whole slip stitch into the second loop and then for the next row
slip stitch into this loop after that so I’m going to leave you guys to that but
just let you guys know once when we’re going over our shoulder seam we’re are
going to be inserting our hook into through the last loop into our shoulder
seam just to eliminate that gap so once when we’re here this loop is actually
attached to the shoulder seam so we’re not going to be working into here all
we’re gonna do is slip stitch into that next loop that we have that is in our
shoulder seam and then from there whatever sequence we have next I am
doing the slip stitching into the second loop so I’ve skipped one loop and then
from here I’m gonna slip stitch into the next two loops flip my work and then for
this first row when we’re going to be doing our decrease we actually aren’t
going to be doing any decreases just so that we can maintain this same amount of
loops we have right here and then into the
loop and then into the row after this we are going to be doing our decreases so
from here I’m just gonna be putting one back loop half double crochet going all
the way down and then I’m gonna work my way back and then I’ll show you guys how
to do a decrease just once and then from there we can move on from there so we’ve
made our way back with our first decrease row and we left our last two
loops so that we can do a back loop half double crochet decrease of two together
so let’s get that started we’re gonna prepare for a half double crochet insert
our hook into that second-to-last loop in this row yarn over pull through then
into that last loop into this row yarn over pull through we should have four
loops on our hook we’re gonna yarn over pull through all four once when we have
that since we started off doing our increases with counting up two loops and
then slip stitching into that second we’re going to start off our decrease
row with the same way so we’re gonna count up one two slip stitch into that
second to close off this row and then slip stitch up the next two to start up
the next row flip my work and since we’re here I guess we might as well do
another decrease together we’re going to prepare for a half double crochet insert
our hook into that first back loop insert pull through once we have that
we’re gonna go into that next back loop yarn over pull through we should have
four loops on our hook we’re gonna yarn over pull through all four and then from
here I do back loop half double crochets once we make it to the end do a chain up
of two flip our work and then do back loop half double crochets until we just
have the last two loops into the previous row do a decrease into those
and then since we’re working our way back when we just previously did a slip
stitch into the second row where we just it a slip stitch into the second loop
since we’re doing that the next one that we’re gonna do is slip stitch just into
that next available loop to close off that row and then slip stitch up just
one to start off the next row and just keep alternating like that while I’m
maintaining doing the decreases when we’re right next to the base going all
the way down until we don’t have any more loops left and then we’ll meet each
other back so that we can seam up the bottom of the sleeve together we just
mean all the way around with our sleeve and we don’t have any more loops left to
go into into our arm hole that we have right here so now all we’re gonna do is
single crochet the entirety of the bottom of our sleeve together so it’s
gonna be the exact same way that we have seemed up our sides and ours
portion as well and the first thing we’re going to want to do is just make
sure that all of our seams are facing the same direction so this is my side
seam based out and this is my shoulder seam based out so let’s do this together
into the bottom of our sleeve what we’re gonna do is insert our hook in through
the first available loop in the front panel and also into the next available
loop into the back panel and then single crochet we’re gonna do this just one
more time into the next available loop into the front next available loop into
the back and then single crochet and then from here we’re just gonna keep
working our way all the way down until we don’t have any more loops left to go
into once we make our way down here don’t cut and tie because we’re gonna
need to go all the way around at the row of single crochet in with our primary
color first but if you guys are actually working up the other way go ahead and
cut and tie and then reattach your yarn into the base portion of our cuff and
then we’ll do this single crochet row together so now that we’ve seamed up our
entire sleeve we are now at the base of where our cuff is going to be so all
we’re gonna need to do is just do a little prep row with our primary color
and then we can go on with another single crochet row with our secondary
color so all we’re gonna do is just put one single crochet into each side half
double crochet going all the way around because we need this to cinch in just a
little bit so all we’re gonna do is do a chain up of one and then into this first
side half double single crochet next side half double sing ooh single crochet
there we go we’re gonna keep doing this all the way
around and so we make it all the way around we’re going to slip stitch into
that first single crochet that we made and then we’re gonna do a chain up of
one and cut and then we’re gonna grab our secondary color and then we’re gonna
go in with our cuff now that we’ve gone over the first row of single crochet now
we can go in with our secondary color and also for our cuff so the first thing
we’re gonna do is just insert our hook into any one of these loops that we just
made of this single crochet row insert our secondary color onto here pull
through do a chain up of one to secure and then from here just put one single
crochet into every loop that we have going all the way around once we meet
back with our first single crochet slip stitch into there and then from there
we’re going to work on the cuff lengths now that we made it all the way around
with our row of secondary color with single crochets now we’re gonna start
working with the length of our cuff but we will be introducing a smaller size
hook just so we can get a little gradual cuff going on because as you guys can
see this is a little bit bigger and then it tapers in towards the bottom and this
is the look that we want so what we’re gonna do from here is first figured out
the length of the cuff that we want so I have already measured my now and I have
a total of three and a half inches or nine centimeters so I’m gonna go in with
a total of fourteen chains to start this off but the first four of my chains is
going to be with my six millimeter and then the last ten is going to be with my
five millimeter hook so let’s get that started together for me I’m gonna go in
with four chains with my six so here’s one two three four I’m gonna take this
out switch out for my five millimeter hook
and then I’m gonna go in with another ten chains one two three four five six
seven eight nine and then ten and then this is what I want once when I have
this we are going to block off that last chain do a chain up of one and then from
here we’re going to insert our hook into that loop that we blocked off or a
second chain from our hook with a slip stitch so we’re gonna insert yarn over
pull through everything and then since we went in with a chain of ten with our
five millimeter hook we’re going to be going in with ten slip stitches with our
five so here is two three four five six seven eight nine and then ten
once when we have reached our tenth slip stitch I’m gonna pull a little bit of
slack switch back out for our six millimeter hook and then I should have
one two three four chains left with our six so let’s go in with four slip
stitches with our six so there’s one two three and then four once when we have
that we are now at the base we’re going to slip stitch into the next available
loop to close off this row with our six and then from here we’re going to slip
stitch into that next available loop to start up our next row and then from here
we’re going to go in with four back loops slip stitches with our six so into
that first back loop with our six millimeter hook there is one two three
and then four now that I have my four I’m switching out to my five millimeter
hook and then going in with ten back loop slip stitches once when you reach
the end we’re gonna do a chain up of wonderful apart work then do ten back
loops slip stitches coming back down switch out for our six millimeter hook
and then go in with four back loops slip stitches to close this off we’re just
gonna keep going back and forth like that all the way around and so we don’t
have any more loops left and then we’ll meet each other back so that we can seam
it all up together so I just mean all the way around with our cuff and we
don’t have any more loops left to go into so now we’re just going to seam
this all up together so all we’re gonna do is the same way that we’ve seamed up
everything so far we’re just going to insert our hook into that first of a
little bit to the front panel next available loop into the back panel and
then single crochet and keep doing this all the way down once you guys get to
the end do a chain up of one in cut and then do the entire sleeve sequence plus
the cuff on the other side and then once when we have both sleeves we can get
started on the lapel since we’re done with the sleeve the first thing we have
to do for the lapel is make sure that everything is slip to right side out
meaning all of our seams are facing the inside once we have that we’re gonna
take a look at the right side first because we’re gonna have to be going in
through one of the loops and one of the loops
that we’re going to be going into is the back loops so now this is the right side
so once when we have that all we’re going to do is go in with our first row
of back loop single crochets going all the way around but into this little
corner that we have right here right in between our herringbone and our body
portion we’re just going to be doing a really small increase right here just so
we can combat this little tiny curve that we have and then we’re going to
work our way back up with more back loop single crochets so what we’re gonna do
is take whatever color we want our lapel to be and mine is my secondary color
we’re going to pull through to a chain up of one to secure and then going into
this first back loop we’re going to insert our hook into that next back loop
and single crochet and we’re gonna keep doing back loop single crochets until we
get just one loop away from this corner that we have right here so we’re going
to stop at this loop and then I’ll meet you guys back because we’re going to be
doing a half double crochet increase and then half double crochet into the body
as well alrighty so now that we’ve made it all the way over to this corner we
left the first available loop that’s right into this corner right here and
then we’re also going to be going into that last one so all we’re gonna do is
prepare for a half double crochet and then go into that last back loop that we
have for this bottom herringbone section so we can insert pull through you’re an
over pull through all three and then this increase is actually going to be
within these kind of loops that we have we should have about two that we can go
into so you guys are gonna have to just pick one it doesn’t matter which one you
guys go into we’re just gonna be going in with an increase of three half double
crochets so I’m just gonna insert my hook into this one and then we’re gonna
go in with one two three once when we have that we’re gonna prepare for
another half double go into the first body loop making sure we’re going into
that back loop with a half double and pull it tight so that there’s no gaps
just like that and from here go in with back loop singles going all the way down
and then once when we make our way up to this body portion we are gonna have a
handful of side half double crochets to go into and all we’re gonna do there is
go into the first side half double crochet with two single crochets next
side half double crochet with one single crochet and then keep alternating just
like that until we hit our other side of our front panel over here
and then continue doing the same thing down here so back loop single crochets
and then making sure we maintain this half double crochet increase of three
half double crochet and then back loop single crochets all the way down to this
corner and then I’ll meet you guys back once we made it all the way around with
our row of single crochet while having our tiny little half double increases at
this little corner that we have right here now we’re just going to be going in
with rows of herringbone stitches for the lapel but for this first row only
we’re just going to be going in through the front loops and we’re only doing it
that way so that the lapel can fold this way opening towards our body really
nicely a lot easier than if we were just going in through both loops and for this
first row as well since we’re going in through the front loops with herringbone
stitches we’re gonna go all the way up until we get to the corner where our
front panel meets our back and then we’re going to be doing an increase of
three just to get a little curve just for this first row same thing over here
in this corner and then going all the way down with more front loop
herringbone stitches and then from there we’re just going to keep going back and
forth with herringbone stitches from there so let’s just do this first little
bit together so what we’re going to do is do a chain up of two this is usual
we’re gonna prepare for a herringbone stitch and then we’re gonna be going in
through just the loop that’s closest to us or the front loop we’re gonna insert
our hook in through this one right here yarn over pull through pull that first
strand underneath our second you’re an over pull through one yarn over pull
through two we’re gonna keep doing this just putting one into every loop going
all the way down until we meet this corner and then we’ll be doing an
increase of three so I’ve just made our way all the way up doing front loop only
herringbone stitches and now that we are near this corner what we’re gonna do is
do a really quick increase of three into this next loop so all that is gonna be
is just three front loop herringbone stitches into this next loop so let’s do
that together here is our first this might be a little tricky so if you guys
need to pull your second strand over your first feel free there is one into
that same loop too and then one more three once when we have that we’re gonna
go back across this back portion that we have with front loop earring
when we get to this corner do another increase of three front loop herringbone
and do front loop herringbone going all the way down until we get down to this
corner and then from here I promise it’ll get it a lot easier we’re just
going to do a chain up of to flip our work and do regular herringbones for as
thick as we want this front lapel to be so I’ll meet you guys back once we get
to the end of this row and then we’ll move on from there
now that we’ve just made our way down with front loop herringbone stitches
where we did little increases into these corners where our front panel met our
back now it’s going to be the fun part where it’s just regular herringbone
stitches so let’s just start that off together and then we’re just gonna keep
going back and forth until we have these sides that we want for our front panel
so let’s just start this next row off together really quickly we’re gonna do a
chain up of two flip our work and just to do the first one together we’re gonna
prepare for a herringbone stitch insert your an over pull through pull that
first strand underneath our second strand you’re an over pull through one
yarn over pull through two and once we have that keep doing that all the way
down across the back down the other side once we make it to the end do a chain up
of two flip our work and then work our way back and then keep going back and
forth just like that until we have the size of the front lapel that we want so
this is what I have once when I have finished going in with my lapel and
these are just our regular herringbone stitches not counting our first single
crochet row I have a total of one two three four five six herringbone stitch
rows and just let you guys know that comes out to a total of three inches or
eight centimeters and now that we have this done we are actually all finished
with our piece the last thing that we need to do is just weave in all of our
ends we’ve woven in our ends and this is our finished cardigan this one took
quite a few tries but a few days later we pulled through and I couldn’t be

Easy Crochet Sweater | Pattern & Tutorial DIY


for this project any category four yarn
will work but I used a full skein of Lion brands pound of love in the color
pumpkin spice as for tools a 4 and a 6 millimeter hook scissors stitch markers
and a tape measure there’s a written pattern down below use offer code TCDDIY
for a discount watch to the end of the video to learn
how to enter this week’s giveaway and we’re using 4 stitches for this project
and they will be as follows chain slip stitch single crochet half double
crochet and double crochet this tutorial is for a size small but you can adjust
it for your size and we explain how to in the video so let’s get started
getting this top started we are first going to grab our category 4 yarn make a
slipknot grab our 4.5 millimeter hook and start off by making a chain that can
wrap around your head so I’m gonna start off by making a chain of
80 and that comes out to 20 inches or 51 centimeters now that we have our chain
what we’re gonna do from here is connect it into the first chain that we made so
all we’re gonna do is run our thumb along one side of our chain making sure
that it’s not twisted and once we make our way over to this first chain we’re
going to insert our hook with a slip stitch now once we get here we’re going
to do a chain up of three because we’re going to be going in with a row of
double crochet around the entirety of our chain so once we get here we’re
going to do a chain up of three that counts as a double crochet once we get
here we’re going to prepare for a double crochet then just go all the way around
putting one double crochet into every loop that we have if I can and yeah go
ahead and go all the way around putting one double crochet into every loop I’ll
meet you guys back alright so we have made it all the way around with our
first row of double crochets once when we get to this point we are going to
slip stitch into that third chain that we made when we first did our chain up
of three to get to this row so we’re gonna insert yarn over pull through with
a slip stitch and then from here we’re actually going to need to insert our
stitch markers into some spots alrighty so this is our collar so far we are
going to need to put in some stitch markers and those stitch markers is
actually going to be placed right where our shoulders are going to be so where
our hook currently is this is going to be the middle of our top so the easier
way to figure out where the sides are it’s just figure out the middle point
from where we’re currently at versus the other side and then from here to that
middle point that we just found find the middle point between that which is right
here so if you guys did the chain on an 80 just like how I did in each direction
you’re gonna count out 20 and then insert your stitch markers if you guys
did a number that’s other than 80 then go ahead and figure out yours and then
now we can go in with some front and back post double crochets so what we’re
gonna do from here is do a chain of three that counts as our double crochet
and then once when we have that we’re first gonna go in with a front post
double crochet it’s gonna be super easy we’re going to yarn over just like how
we would if we’re doing a regular double crochet and then into this next double
crochet you would typically be going into this top loop we’re actually going
to be going in through the post I’m using air quotes in case you guys
couldn’t tell what we’re gonna be going into that post so basically this long
portion that is the I guess stem of our double crochet we’re gonna be inserting
our hook behind that and then through the other side and then once when we get
here we’re going to continue on double crochet in just like normal so we’re
gonna yarn over pull through that post yarn over pull through two yarn over
pull through two and that is our first front post double crochet now we’re
going to do a back post which is the same thing but we’re going in through
the back so we’re gonna prepare for a double crochet and then now we’re going
to be inserting our hook behind our work but in between that first front post and
then this next double crochet that we have so bring it up through this way and
then over that double crochet and then through the back and then this is what
it should look like it’s a little confusing looking if you’re looking at
it like this but once when we’re here we’re gonna yarn over pull through that
post yarn over pull through two yarn over pull through two and now we have a
front and a back post double crochet and we’re just going to do this together one
more time just to make sure that everyone got it down well once we get
here we’re gonna be alternating between front back post again so prepare for a
double crochet go into that double crochet with a front post double crochet
yarn over pull through yarn over pull through two yarn over pull through two
you got it let’s do one more prepare for a double crochet go in
through that back post yarn over pull through yarn over pull through two yarn
over pull through two and then that is basically the pattern we’re just gonna
keep doing this all the way down until we get to our stitch marker post and
then we’ll be doing an increase into there together all right so we have made
that all the way down to our first stitch marker and now we’re going to be
doing the next corresponding stitches post and we’re gonna be doing an
increase of two sorry if that made no sense it’s a lot of words but once when
we get here as you guys can see the last post that I did was a front post double
crochet so now I’m gonna be going in with an increase of two back post double
crochets but if yours is reversed if you guys need to be going in with an
increase of two with front post double crochets too old early fine but once
when we do get here we’re going to take out the stitch marker but don’t put them
too far because we’re gonna get put it back in two seconds we’re gonna prepare
for a double crochet and I will be going in through that back post with one back
post double crochet and then do that one more time prepare go in through that
back post again another back post double crochet and then from here we’re going
to insert our hook not in through the top loops but actually just into this
little gap that we have in between these two double crochets just to indicate
that this loop is on one side and then this other loop is on the other so just
in between right here and that’s going to be our separator once when we have
that we’re going to continue on with our patterns so I will be going in with one
front post double crochet a back post and then keep doing that all the way
down and then the same thing that we just did here so an increase of whatever
posts we have once we get to this other stitch marker and then insert that
stitch marker in between those two posts and then work your way back and then
we’ll connect with a slip stitch together and then we can get started on
the rest alrighty so we are all that with our second row and our first row a
front and back post double crochets and once we get here we’re going to be slip
stitching into that chain above through just like how we did before so count up
three chains insert with a slip stitch once when we get here we’re going to be
check out our hook from our four millimeter hook over to our six and now
we’re gonna start working into the body portion but do not put your formula
meter hook away because we will be going into the bottom border along with the
same time as we’re going in with the body so a little bit different so we’re
trying something new but once when we get here you guys are going to want to
try this collar on and then figure out the length that you guys want for your
body portion let me look at my notes I’m going to make a chain that comes out to
55 and that is a total of 15 inches or 38 centimeters but keeping in mind we
will be going in with a bottom border at the same time I’ll let you guys know the
number count once we get there but go ahead and make whatever change you guys
have and then I’ll meet you guys back all right so we are back with the length
of the body portion with our six millimeter hook from here we’re going to
just take this guy out don’t put them too far because we’re gonna be switching
them back but we’re gonna grab our four millimeter hook insert that onto our
work and then now we’re going to make a chain of whatever length we want our
bottom border to be so I’m gonna make a chain of seven and that comes out to
about an inch and a half or four centimeters and then also get a stitch
marker ready because once when we go in with our chain we’re gonna go back and
then insert our stitch marker into there just so we can see and make sure every
time we go in with our next row that we’re going into the right loops and we
go in with our bottom border so I’m gonna start off by making my chain of
seven which is my bottom border once when I have my seven I’m going to be
taking my stitch marker and inserting it into that first loop that I made with
this four millimeter hook I was gonna say category four four millimeter hook
once when we have that we’re going to block off that last chain do a chain up
of one and then into that first loop that we have we’re gonna be going in
with a single crochet so insert your an over pull through yarn over pull through
two and then from here we’re just gonna put one single crochet into every loop
going all the way up until we hit our stitch markers so I made a chain out of
seven for my bottom border so I should end up with seven single crochets so
let’s just stick with each other really quickly
one two three four and then seven right here so I now have
my bottom border all finished up from here I’m going to be switching out our
work again so take out your formula meter hook grab your six millimeter hook
and then from here all the way up to the base of the collar we’re going to be
going in with more single crochets but with our six millimeter so into that
next available loop just go in with a single crochet and then keep doing this
all the way down once we hit our collar I’ll meet you guys back so that we can
connect it together and then we’re gonna be doing a half double crochet row right
after this so I’ll meet you guys back so we can get started on that so we have
just made our way all the way down with our first row of single crochets once we
have gotten down to our collar what we’re gonna do is slip stitch into that
next available loop to close off this row so we’re going to insert our hook
into that loop we’re going to yarn over pull through everything once when we
have that we’re going to be alternating between single crochets and half double
crochets so into the next two loops we’re going to be working our way up to
our half double crochet row so we’re going to be slip stitching into the next
two loops so there’s one and then there’s two from here we’re going to
flip our work we’re gonna prepare for a half double and we’re going to be going
in through the back loops for every row after this so into this first back loop
we’re gonna insert here and over pull through yarn over pull through all three
that is our half double now we’re gonna keep doing this all the way down until
we hit our stitch marker where our bottom border is gonna start and we’re
gonna be doing more back loop half doubles but that’s going to be with our
four millimeter hook so let’s go ahead and do back loop half doubles going all
the way back down and then I’ll meet you guys back so that we can switch out our
hook just so y’all can one remember and to see what it’s actually gonna look
like we’ve done our back loop half double crochets all the way down until
we’ve hit our stitch marker and I have seven loops left so now I’m going to be
switching out my six millimeter hook for my for inserting that into my work and
I’m gonna finish off this row by continuing our back loop half double
crochets but with my four millimeter hook so we’re going to prepare insert
into that next back loop with half doubles and we’re going to keep doing
this all the way down until we don’t have any more
loop’s left to go into but we will stick with each other because we are pretty
close to the end if I can get enough yarn so I don’t know how many does two
maybe three all right so we have just made it down
to the end of our half double crochet row which is our second row once we get
here we’re going to be working our way up to our base we’re going to do a chain
up of one flip our work and now we’re going to be doing back loops single
crochets so same rules apply I have seven stitches for my bottom border so
I’m going to be going in with seven back loop single crochets and you guys go
ahead and adjust for whatever number loops you guys have for your bottom
border but I’m gonna go in with a back loop single crochet into the next seven
so there’s one two three four five six one more for me seven and then once when
we get here we’re gonna be switching out for our six again and then continue
going all the way up with back loop single crochets but with our six I’ll
meet you guys back so that we can go into the collar with each other just one
more time and then from there the remainder of this section is going to be
pretty much the same so you guys would just have at it from there but I’ll let
you guys know what we’re going to do into the next clip all right so we are
back we have made our way all the way up to our collar we’re going to connect
into the collar again and we’re gonna start the next row just to show you guys
one more time and then we’re gonna talk about this just a little bit so into
this next available loop we’re going to be going into there with a slip stitch
to close off this single crochet row and then in order to work our way up to the
next row we’re gonna be slip stitching up the next two loops because our next
row is a half double crochet row from here we’re going to flip our work and
put in one back loop half double crochet into every loop that we have until we
get down to the bottom then we’re going to continue doing back loop half double
crochets but we will be switching out for our four and then the rest of the
pattern is going to remain the same from here and we’re actually just gonna keep
going back and forth with our pattern as you guys will see I have a couple of
rows already I had to come back to readjust some things I told you in a
previous clip that is no cut but we’re actually just gonna keep going back and
forth with our pattern just like this until we get about two inches right
before we hit our stitch marker which is in the corner of our collar and then
from there we’re going to do a little single crochet row and then chain out
from where the stitch marker is and that’s going to make our sleeve and then
from there we’re going to be doing body and sleeve at the
same time because it’s all gonna be made into one big piece so go ahead and do
that and then I’ll meet you guys back so that we can get started on our sleeve
all right so we are back and this is what things are looking like so far we
have done our back loop singles and back loop have doubles going all the way down
until we have just two inches in between our work and where our stitch marker is
and then from here we’re actually just going to go all the way up single
crochet across these few loops that we have right here and then make a chain
for our sleeve so if you guys have ended on the bottom go ahead and just do your
regular single crochet row going all the way back up and then meet me back up
here play if you guys are up here and then what we’re gonna do from here is we
are gonna slip stitch into the next available loop that we have into our
base which is what we’ve been doing but then from here down to where we have our
stitch marker we’re gonna be doing single crochets because this is what
we’re gonna be going into until we hit our underarm portion and then we’re just
gonna kind of keep going from there but once when we get to this point
let’s do single crochets until we get to our stitch marker this will be fairly
simple just go all the way down so once when we have done our single crochets
going all the way across our base until we get to our stitch marker now we’re
going to make a SuperDuper long chain for our sleeves so you guys can keep it
as a short sleeve long sleeve three-quarter length whatever you guys
want I’m going to have a weird hybrid between a short sleeve and a
three-quarter length sleeve so I’m going to start off by making a chain of 17
inches but please keep in mind that we are going to be doing the same thing
that we did here for the bottom border and yep so I’m gonna make my chain of 17
inches or 42 centimeters in the next slip I’ll let you guys know how many
chains that is and then we’ll move on from there okay so I am back with my sleeve chain
and just let you guys know I made a total of 60 chains and from here we are
going to be switching out for our four millimeter hook again and I will end up
having the same amount of loops for my bottom border so I’m going to insert my
four millimeter hook and go in with seven chain
right after this but you guys can go ahead and adjust it for whatever you
guys want I’m going to go in with one two three four five six seven then we’re
gonna grab a stitch marker and then insert it into that loop that we just
blocked off right before we started doing our chain with our four millimeter
hook and then from here is since the last rule that we did into the body
portion was a row of back loop single crochets we’re going to start off by
going in with back loop half doubles so we’re gonna block off that last chain
we’re gonna go up with one two prepare for a half double go into that loop that
we blocked off or the third one from our hook with a half double and then go
ahead and go all the way down with half doubles and from here we’re just going
to keep going down with our half doubles including going into the collar portion
that we have right here going all the way down to the body we’re gonna switch
out where it’s necessary and then we’re going to work our way back up with
single crochets and then we’ll meet each other back once when we get into this
collar portion because they’re going to have to do some decreases once we made
our way over to this collar portion we’re going to start going into the back
loops again because this is going to be working straight into the body and we
want everything to match up so go ahead and do the same pattern but now we’re
going in through the back loops and then like I said before I’ll meet you guys
back once we work our way up and then we’re back at this collar portion alright so we are back and we have just
done our row of single crochet that comes all the way back up and we are at
our collar portion right here and we’re actually just going to be doing two
decreases in to here and then continuing on to the rest of the pattern so once we
get here we’re going to be inserting our hook into the first back loop that we
have into the collar portion we’re going to insert pull through and then also
into the loop right after that insert pull through we should have three loops
on our hook we’re going to yarn over pull through all three and from here
we’re going to be putting one back loop single crochet until we get to right
where this actually starts to go into the sleeve and this is going to be a
different number for everyone so I’m just gonna do that
really quickly a couple back loops single crochets and then once when we
get here we’re going to be doing another decrease so two decreases into the two
corner portions that we have into our collar portion so insert pull through
into the next back loop pull through yarn over pull through all three and
then from here the rest of the pattern is going to remain the same so do back
loop single crochets going all the way down our sleeve portion once we make our
way down there we’re going to be switching out our hook for our four just
to finish off the cuff and then work our way back with back loop half double but
when we’re going in with our back loop half double crochet row we actually
aren’t going to be doing anything into the collar portion we’re just going to
go all the way down with back loop half doubles work our way back up with back
loop singles and then decrease into the collar portion and that’s actually going
to be the remainder of our pattern so I’m just going to do this one more time
with you guys because it’s pretty simple I’m going to work my way down finish up
this single crochet row that I’m doing work my way down the other way with back
loop wrap doubles and then work my way back up so that we can do another
decrease into the colored portion together and then I’ll go just kind of
let you guys have had it but yeah go ahead and do all that and then I’ll meet
you guys back okay so we have made our way back with our back loop single
crochet row and we are back at the collar we’re gonna be doing our
decreases together one more time and then I’ll talk you guys through the rest
and then we will move on from there but we will be doing our decreases first
so into that’s my chair sorry but once when we get here we’re gonna be
inserting our hook and through this first loop yarn over pull through into
this next loop yarn over pull through yarn over pull through all three and
then we’re just gonna do back loop single crochets until we get to
somewhere around here which is where our sleeve meets our body portion so just do
a couple back loop single crochets this doesn’t necessarily need to be exact
once when we get here about we’re gonna be doing another decrease so insert pull
through insert pull through yarn over pull through all three and now we should
be working into our sleeve with more back loop single crochets and let’s just
lay this down flat so that we can about this and then I’ll let you guys go
already so this is what our work is looking like this probably isn’t the
best visual representation because it looks really weird but this is what
we’re doing so we’ve just done our decreases into our back loop single
crochet rows right into the collar together and then we’re just going to do
more back loop single crochets all the way down remembering that we will switch
out for our formula meter hook and then we’re going to go back with back loop
half doubles just remember that when we’re going down with back loop half
doubles we will not be doing a decrease into those rows once when we have that
we’re gonna single crochet back up doing back loop single crochets that is and
then decreasing into this collar portion and then working our way down and we’re
just going to keep going back and forth like that until this body portion can
actually wrap and meet our mid underarm so basically this is going to be one
entire half of our piece and a really quick tip sorry in a really quick tip
once when we get here I know that we’ve been doing decreases just a couple loops
away from each other but they will eventually be two decreases next to each
other and that’s totally fine but yeah just keep going back and forth like this
until you guys get the length that you guys need and then I’ll meet you guys
back just to tell you how many rows I have and then how we’re going to connect
it into the other side together so we are back and we have one entire half of
our top all finished up and just let you guys know I have a total of 30 rows but
once we have this we’re just going to do the same thing that we did over here on
the other side and from here I’m just going to show you guys where we insert
our hook what we’re gonna do is just take our six millimeter hook and then
we’re going to be inserting it into this next available loop that we have into
the collar and then it’s going to be the same pattern but instead of going in
with half double crochets because that’s what our row number two is we’re going
to be going in with a row of regular single crochets not going into the back
loops for this first row so we’re going to insert pull through that loop that
we’re into and then go into that first loop that we have into the body with a
single crochet and then once when we get down here we’re gonna be putting one
single crochet into every loop going back down our work while still
maintaining our 4 millimeter hook along the bottom
once we get to the end we’re going to do a chain up of to flip our work and do
back loop half doubles I’ll meet you guys back once we get down here so that
we can start up our half double crochet row together and then we’ll also end it
together and then together we’ll move on from there so I’ve just made it down to
the other end of our first row of our other side of our panel with single
crochets what we’re gonna do from here is do a chain of hook to flip our work
and then we’re gonna go in with back loop half doubles and we’re only going
to be going in the back loop half doubles with our 4 millimeter hook until
we get to the top of our bottom band we’re gonna be switching out to our 6
and then we’re going to do more back loop half doubles going all the way up
towards the collar then I’ll meet you guys up once we get to the color so we
can attach it and then we will move on from there and we’ve made our way all
the way up towards our collar with our back loop half double crochets and we’re
just going to connect it into the color together and then from there we’re just
gonna have at it so we’re going to be counting up the next to available loops
that we have into our collar we’re gonna count up one and two insert your hook
into that second loop with a slip stitch to close off this row and then our next
row is gonna be a row of back loop singles so I’m going to slip stitch up
the next available loop flip our work and then go in with back loop singles
and then we’re gonna keep doing this until we have the same amount of rows
that we did right here right before we started going in with our sleeve so I’m
gonna keep going until I have a total of eight rows and I’ll meet you guys back
so that we can do the sleeve together even though it’s gonna be pretty much
the same thing okay so really quickly we are back and we’re just about ready to
go in with the sleeve on this other side that we have but the difference is since
we started our row off up here instead of down here with our row one our eighth
row or whatever row we end up on is actually going to be on the opposite
side from where our last row ended here right before we went in with our sleeve
so just as an example I went in with eight rows and then I actually ended at
the bottom and then once when we had that we could have just gone all the way
up with back loop single crochets and then went in with our chain which is
what we did but now that I’m on this side I have my eight rows and I end up
here so what we’re going to do is do a chain up of one in cut and we’re going
to attach it to the bottom side just so that everything can be even
on both sides so since I ended here we were going to do a chain up of one and
we’re gonna cut our work and then we’re gonna reattach our yarn on to the bottom
so go ahead and grab your 4 millimeter hook it’ll meet you guys
at the bottom right here well once when we get here we’re just gonna be
inserting our hook in through this back loop and then we’re gonna work our way
back up with back loop single crochets switching out our hooks just like how we
normally would and then we’re gonna do the rest of this just like normal so
we’re gonna pull through to a chain up of one and then do back loop single
crochets and then this is going to look just a smidge bit different than the
body portion but not different enough to where we’re going to find a big
difference once when we wear it I’ll go ahead and just keep doing this and then
the rest of this is going to be just like how we did this sleeves so go in
with single crochets along this little chunk that we have until we reach our
stitch marker make a chain that is the same chain link that we have for this
sleeve right here and then we’re going to be doing decreases into this little
chunk that we have right here we’re going to be doing two of them into every
single crochet row so exactly the same thing that we have over here and then
once we have the same amount of rows we’re going to chain up a1 and cut and
in this entire sequence that we just did here we’re gonna do the same thing on
the other side but I’ll meet you guys back so that we can start that off
together so go ahead and get this sleeve done and then I’ll meet you guys back alrighty so we are now back we have just
finished doing one entire front panel of our top and we’re actually just gonna do
the same exact thing that we did here but just along the rest of the collar
that we have so I’m basically just here to show you guys where to insert your
hook even though I’m sure you guys already know just insert your hook
directly into the middle point that we have into this back half of the collar
that we have that doesn’t have anything into it and then start off by making the
same chain count and then move on from there you guys are pretty much set so go
ahead and do that and then I will meet you guys back one so we have both sides
all finished up so we are back and we have just finished up going in with the
second panel which is exactly the same as the front panel
and we are pretty much all done just the last thing we have to do is seam up our
sides so let’s just get that started together getting started at either end
either the bottom band or the cuff it does not matter we’re gonna start off
with our 4 millimeter hook and we’re going to insert that into that bottom
corner that we have and through both sides we’re going to pull our yarn
through and chain up one to secure once when we have this we’re just gonna go
all the way down making sure that our single crochet goes in through the front
panel and the back panel at the same time so let’s just get this started
together into the first available loop into the front panel and the next
available loop into the back panel once when we have that go ahead and single
crochet let’s do that one more time into the next available loop in the front
next available loop in the back and then single crochet and we’re just gonna keep
doing this all the way up and around since we are underneath our underarm
we’re gonna keep going until we don’t have any more loops left to go into just
so just seaming up this entire piece but once when we get to the body portion
which is our 6 millimeter hook we will be switching that out as well so go
ahead and do that and then I’ll meet you guys back just to show you guys where
we’re gonna be inserting our hook for this top seam for the top of the
shoulder and then we can move on from there so you’ve just finished up seaming
the bottoms and we’re gonna do the exact same thing up here at the top and the
only thing that I have to remind you guys of is once when you guys insert
your 6 millimeter hook into these loops that’s right next to the collar make
sure that you guys are going into the loop that’s right before this first loop
into our chain that we made and we’re only doing that so that we don’t have
any gaps in between the collar and our sleeve so as you guys can see this is my
first appear first loop here I went into the loops right before that and from
here insert pull through do a chain up of one to secure and then from here
continue doing single crochets making sure we’re going into the front panel in
the back panel at the same time and then once we get down to the cuff go ahead
and switch out for your formula meet your hook and then once we get down
there go ahead and cut and tie and then do the same thing on the other side just
making sure that our seams are all facing the same direction and now that
we have seemed up our sleeves on both sides we are actually all done the last
thing we have to do is just weave in all of our ends
we’ve woven in our ends and this is our sweater all finished up we wanted to do
a modern take on an everyday easy casual sweater that wasn’t a Raglan and this is
it and I am so happy with how this turned out it is super cute trendy and
it will never go out of style and if you’ll want to grab the pattern it’s

Transferring Real Honey Into A Simulation 🍯

Transferring Real Honey Into A Simulation 🍯


Dear Fellow Scholars, this is Two Minute Papers
with Dr. Károly Zsolnai-Fehér. It’s time for some fluid simulations again!
Writing fluid simulations is one of the most fun things we can do within computer graphics,
because we can create a virtual scene, add the laws of physics for fluid motion, and
create photorealistic footage with an absolutely incredible amount of detail and realism. Note
that we can do this ourselves, so much so, that for this scene, I ran the fluid and light
simulation myself here at the Two Minute Papers studio, and, on consumer hardware. However, despite this amazing looking footage,
we are not nearly done yet! There is still so much to explore! For instance, a big challenge
these days is trying to simulate fluid-solid interactions. This means that the sand is
allowed to have an effect on the fluid, but at the same time, as the fluid sloshes around,
it also moves the sand particles within. This is what we refer to as two-way coupling. We also know that there are different kinds
of two-way coupling, and only the more advanced ones can correctly simulate how real honey
supports the dipper and there is barely any movement. This may be about the only place
on the internet where we are super happy that nothing at all is happening. However, many of you astute Fellow Scholars
immediately ask, okay, but what kind of honey are we talking about? We can buy tens, if
not hundreds of different kinds of honey at the market. If we don’t know what kind of
honey we are using, how do we know if this simulation is too viscous, or not viscous
enough? Great question! Just to make sure we don’t get lost, viscosity
means the amount of resistance against deformation, therefore, as we go up, you can witness this
kind of resistance increasing. And now, hold on to your papers because this new technique
comes from the same authors as the previous one with the honey dipper, and enables us
to import our real-world honey into our simulation. That sounds like science fiction. Importing
real-world materials into a computer simulation? How is that even possible? Well, with this
solution, all we need to do is point a consumer smartphone camera at the phenomenon and record
it. The proposed technique does all the heavy lifting by first, extracting the silhouette
of the footage, and then, creating a simulation that tries to reproduce this behavior. The
closer it is, the better. However, at first, of course, we don’t know the exact parameters
that would result in this, however, now we have an objective we can work towards. The
goal is to re-run this simulation with different parameter sets, in a way to minimize the difference
between the simulation and reality. This is not just working by trial and error but through
a technique that we refer to as mathematical optimization. As you see, later, the technique was able
to successfully identify the appropriate viscosity parameter. And when evaluating these results,
note that this work does not deal with how things look – for instance, whether the honey
has the proper color or translucency is not the point here. What we are trying to reproduce
is not how it looks, but how it moves. It works on a variety of different fluid types.
I have slowed down some of these videos to make sure we can appreciate together how amazingly
good these estimations are. And we’re not even done yet! If we wish
to, we can even set up a similar scene as the real-world one with our simulation as
a proxy for the real honey or caramel flow. After that, we can perform anything we want
with this virtual piece of fluid, even including putting it into novel scenarios, like this
scene which would otherwise be difficult to control, and quite wasteful, or even creating
the perfect honey dipper experiment. Look at how perfect the symmetry is there down
below! Yum! Normally, in a real-world environment, we cannot pour the honey and apply forces
this accurately, but in a simulation, we can do anything we want! And now, we can also
import the exact kind of materials from our real world repertoire. If you can buy it,
you can simulate it. What a time to be alive! This episode has been supported by Linode.
