So, back before The Great Knitting Slump of 2007-2008, I was writing patterns and selling patterns and knitting up a storm. I even had a cruddy little website called Yvonne's Knitting Bag and had some of my original patterns posted there. Some were free and some weren't free, but I've decided that over the next few days/weeks/months/years (depending on how lazy I am) that I'm going to bring those patterns over here and make them free. Maybe somebody will want to make one of them? I saw one of the free ones on Ravelry and that's the first one I'm going to post here.
It's another reversible cables scarf, different than the one I designed for Lion Brand, but it looks cool, is super-easy, and wicked warm. I have to figure out how to post this on Ravelry as well, as somebody already linked to it (thank you :) and I don't want to make it a duplicate.
Anyway! Here is my pattern for Toasty Twisty, complete with The Worst Pictures Ever Taken (I suck at photography) for your knitting and hopefully wearing/gifting pleasure!
