Dinosaur Charts

So a while ago, I made this:





Beside being embarrassed about the quality of these pictures, I actually consider this kind of a failed project... I accidentally used two different weights of yarn, AND thought it was more natural fibers (and therefore more blockable) when really it's 35% microfiber and I was unable to get rid of all the tension and twisting issues. But hey, my boyfriend likes it a lot, and it was for his birthday, so that's good...and people keep asking me for a pattern so apparently other people like it anyway. Well, I don't have a pattern, but I do have charts, which I finally put it digital form. I am not 100% pleased with these either, since I think the dinos are a bit too short and squat, but they still come out pretty cute. Feel free to play with them, use them however you wish (with credit, pretty please.) And by all means, show me what you come up with ;-)

(I'm just going to put links because parts of the pictures get cut off if I embed them.)

Maner- Free Pattern

This pattern is temporarily unavailable while it's revamped

I've been into unusual (but simple) construction techniques lately, and this one is certainly both. Off, it looks nothing like a headband. It looks...well, I don't know. Like some sort of little hammock for ferrets, maybe. But on, it works very well:





Not quite a headband, not quite a hat...but infinitely useful. Keeps your ears warm and your hair in check. I think it would be great for dreads...I almost want to dread my hair just so I can have more of an excuse for wearing it every other day. Yes, it does have a little wrinkly/gathery bit down near the back, but I kind of like that about it. It's kind of reminiscent of a headscarf and when you want that extra fabric to cover your ears better, you're glad it's there. I may try and rework it later with some decreases to get rid of it, though.

Butch & Betty Cuffs- Now Available

Pattern two is up! These two cuffs are made essentially the same way, but (as you can see) with a lot of opportunity for customization. They're super fast and easy (well, the lace trim takes a little while, but otherwise) and make great gifts.






The pattern is available at my etsy shop.

You can find it on Ravelry here



Neat eh? If you're a Ravelry member, this means it will go into your library.
