This pattern was so fun and easy to work with. I got it from the book One Ball Knits - Accessories by Fatema, Khadija, and Hajera Habibur-Rahman. One of the most well-written pattern books that I've ever read! I used Knit Picks Comfy yarn in Blackberry. The most luscious, soft, beautiful, deep, dark purple I've gotten to work with. Love the book, love the yarn, LOVE :muah: :inlove: the end result! I made a couple mistakes, but the pattern is very forgiving. Without further ado...

Very pretty! I love the color. It looks really snuggly. :)

BTW, What books are those on the shelf in the upper left hand corner? The spines look kind of familiar to me.

Thanks so much!

Most of the books on that shelf are from the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. Absolutely :heart: those books!

That is cute. I'm knitting one similar for my DGD. Does stuff ever go fast when it's for kids.

It's in a deep purple also.
