FO - Woobie Zebra! NEW PIX added
I had a few rough spots making this, but it wasn't hard. The designer responds quickly so I didn't have to wait long for a clarification. It's knit in the round so no seams at all.

I love how it came out and I hope the new mother likes it, too!!

This is just adorable and will make a perfect gift for a new mother. But also, the design is so pleasing, it's just a joy to look at. Really well done and in perfect colors.

That's absolutely the cutest thing!!!

Hmmm I have some pink/gray/black variegated yarn - wonder if my GD would like one of these.... It'd be striped -- just a little differently.

Thanks! What weight is your yarn? I tried with worsted and DK and it was going to come out too large. I didn't know how to resize the head, but you've been knitting longer so that might not be an issue for you. I think any yarn would be cute.

It's worsted, I think it's Caron's old Dazzelaire, the new stuff is a bulky but this isn't.

Thank you! Since it was knit in the round it was really easy. I was pleased that they came out so neatly. It's simply a CDD (centered double decrease) at the corners and when change yarns you just bring the new one under the old color.

I'll take a few more pix of some interesting points...

Awww! What a cute woobie (uh, what's a woobie?). Well, whatever it is, it's a keeper.

Reminds me of the zebra rug I crocheted for a cousin who had her room decorated all in zebra stripes! I did different sized stripes of white and black, and it even had a tail. Yes, a rug with a tail! You've got a woobie (whatever that is) with a head. Hee!!
