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.

Height: 6.25 inches

Hi there- as a new spinner, I've discovered the pure awesomeness of cowls- as they take just a little yarn, all my odd handspun skeins can become beautiful and useful clothing for people I love (and me of course).
So thanks for the pattern, I'm excited to try it out.
