Revamping Pattern Posts

Today I am hoping to revamp a bunch of the posts on my blog that include information about my patterns. I'm going to make sure that all the free patterns include the pattern, that all for sale patterns include a purchase link, and that all patterns include a Ravelry Projects link.

So check back at the end of today for thorough information about most of my patterns!

I just realized that a bunch of my free patterns aren't here on my blog! Over the next few weeks I will be sure to change that!

Check back for the free patterns:

Duke of Devonshire: Masculine Cowl
Bree: Retro Inspired Hat
Puzzled: Plush Puzzle Pieces
Cycles: Tampon Holders
Uprooted and Deflowered: Menstrual Cup Cozies
Reign in the Boys: Condom Holder
Circlet: Sunny Scarf

New Pattern: Wonky

Knitty published my pattern Wonky! It's a really fun and quick cowl that could be knit for kids, adults, men, women, or even dogs if you wanted to.

Here's a little info about the pattern, but you'll have to go to Knitty to see the rest:

Sometimes life is a little wonky, a little off kilter. Sometimes things happen at the most inconvenient of times, but this cowl makes it okay, and even fun to be out of balance.

It’s a traditional stitch with a twist. The pattern is shown in 3 different cool-toned yarns, demonstrating its versatility without them being wildly different. If you like living on the edge, make it even more discombobulated with a color that screams or a funky handspun art yarn.


Circumference: 19 inches
Height: 6.25 inches

I feel like a broken record

I'm such a bad blogger, and it's all Ravelry's fault! And I rarely knit anymore- and that's all spinnings fault! So I guess until I can come up with something better to say, I will just have to leave you with some major fiber porn- pics of most of the yarns I've spun in the past few months. And even they aren't great pics, so maybe I should have waited to blog until I had something better to say...

Oh! And I broke down and signed up for twitter. Follow me (especially to hear about shop updates). I'm Bohoknitterchic there too.
