Make a magic loop with 6sc
For the body of the bone:
(sc3, sc2tog) 6 times (24sc)
For the medial collateral (deltoid) ligament:
There are many different interpretations of this.
For the deep posterior tibiotalar ligament:
Sew the thinner end of this to the tibia in the same place as you attached the posterior tibiotalar ligament. The other end should be sewn to the sustentaculum tali of the calceneus.
For the superficial posterior tibiotalar ligament:
Sew one end of this to the right-hand side of the base of the fibula. The other side should attach to the talus, just to eh right of the curved surface (as shown below).
For the anterior fibular ligament:
Tendons are essentially the same as ligaments, but they attach to bones only on one end, and to muscles at the other end. In this skeleton I have attached this tendon to the bone. I am planning to extend the skeleton at a later date to add muscle to it, so have attached it fairly loosely to the femur (so that I can detach it at a later date to connect it to the muscle)
