Puff Daddy is in the House!
October 28, 2008
Remember Mariko and the crazy puff scarflet she found in her dad’s closet and how we all squee’d at the cuteness and eggzamined it very carefully to see how it was made? And how we suffered 70s Acrylic Flashbacks and speculated how terrific this accessory would be, if knitted up in Good Yarn, by which we mean a free-range natural fiber preferably of a high-altitude ruminant?
The original has yielded up its secrets, and Puff Daddy is now a free pattern that everybody can download over at Super Eggplant (which is usually a blog about cupcakes and Japanese gel pens but whatever).
Important Feature: This is a bi-species knit. Here we see it on a human waif:
Over at Mariko’s you can see it on Deedle and Mariko. It knits up in less than an hour (including Puff Construction). There are 288 stitches in the adult (human) size. (Yes, I counted.) I presume there are fewer stitches in the adult (Basenji) size, and even fewer stitches in the wristlet size.
We used a super luxe yarn because, as I mentioned:
THERE ARE ONLY 288 STITCHES IN THE THING. Go crazy!
Everybody Puff now!
