You could try submitting it to Knitty.com, knitting magazines, to the 365 knitting patterns calendar, and to Annie's Attic to see if they might be interested in printing it (they sometimes do little leaflets, as does other craft publishers, which you'll want to look up). In addition, you might contact yarn companies and see if they would be interested in having you 1) reknit your creation in one of their yarns, and 2) have it published on their site or in their publications.

You can find submission information online for all of these, plus the magazines themselves always include submission info, too.

You also might look on Ravelry to find people who have had their patterns published and ask them how they went about it. In particular, look for people who have just had their first pattern published. They probably have more recent info about how to get your foot in the door. Ravelry may already have a forum about this, too, so check that as well.

Congrats on your one-of-a-kind creation. I'm not sure if you should share it with us just yet--maybe wait and see if someone wants to publish it first. But at some point, we'd love to see it!
