What is this?
Caleb says this is an Effalunt. I was wandering around blogland over the weekend and someone linked to this pattern (I'm sorry, whoever's blog linked to them, I forgot to write it down). I thought this was so cute. And its the easiest little pattern to do. I made it in a day. I think you could knit it out of any weight yarn since the pattern tells you how many ridges to knit, not measurements, just pick the size needles appropriate for your yarn. I used the Peruvian Highland Wool from Elann that I had left over from the ChicKnits Ribby Cardi. If you're curious, the color is Dusty Teal. I made his little blanket from some left over Lorna's Laces Shepard Sock in Watercolor. The pattern actually calls for a knitted tail but I decided to braid his tail. I-cord would also work here. Hope you enjoy a little Effalunt for your Friday!
