Doomvember: Oh Bondage!

We're just about half-way through Doomvember, and the Doomsday Knits release date is creeping ever closer! Whee! On the docket for today: Me looking totally, criminally insane!




Introducing Oh Bondage! (As in... Up Yours!) 



Oh Bondage! Takes its name from the bondagey-looking straps (and general attitude of RAARRR!!!) Despite looking a bit more complex than your average cowl, it's a very easy and fast knit in chunkysoft Malabrigo Rasta- sewing on the straps (which are actually purse handles from a chain craft store!) is the hardest part. (And don't worry, it's not that hard, I promise!) Since you can choose your straps and also their placement, it can be tweaked for any size- I recommend safety pinning things into place and doing a lot of trying-on before you sew.



Even zombies need to tie their shoe laces.



We figured this cowl could fit into quite a few apocalyptic scenarios, so we put it in the "Miscellaneous Mayhem" chapter, which covers things like zombies, plagues, war, famine... all the reasons-for-chaos that didn't explicitly fit with the other chapters.


Oh Bondage! is on Ravelry here. Please be sure to check out the rest of the tour- tomorrow you'll see corsets as you've never seen them before over on Rachel's blog! 

Want to lay your claim on a copy of Doomsday Knits before release day? Swing on over to Cooperative Press to pre-order!

Photos, as you may expect, are by the delightful Vivian Aubrey.
