i'm a little behind posting about this, but i was away last week and i'm only now catching up. anyway, last week, Knitty released my latest pattern - A circular scarf/cowl thing that I named Katie.
it's totally reversible , although i like the gray stripe-y side better, it's long enough to wrap around your neck twice without strangling you. the gray is a Lambs Pride worsted. the colored side is handspun. so if you are a spinner, this is a great pattern for using up your less than perfect handspun 2-ply yarns (like mine).
and it's knit in 2-color brioche. brioche is less a stitch than it is a knitting style that produces a wonderfully textured and squishy, stretchy fabric. i love it.
i hope you like it and aren't afraid to try it out. it's my first non-self published KNIT pattern so even if you don't want to knit it, just keep clicking on the link so that Knitty doesn't regret publishing it. HA!
i'm serious. add it to your favorites and queues in ravelry too. GO!
