Pattern: Cephalohedron by Erica Schlueter
From: Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts 2011
Yarn: Cascade 220 Sport
Needles: Size 4 US (16" circular and DPNs)
This pattern is awesome. Clear and well-written (there was one minor error - see my Rav notes) I love that I didn't have to sew any pieces - everything is knit together as you go, even the eyes! Also, it is self-stuffing, so I didn't have to look for my elusive bag of ancient fiber-fill. I started on Sunday and finished on Wednesday. I could see making some of these as holiday gifts if I had any children on the list.
Cascade 220 Sport is also awesome. The name is slightly misleading - it's only 164 yards - but this stuff has great stitch definition and is dirt cheap to boot. It's just $4/a skein at the Fiber Gallery, and two skeins will definitely make two cephalohedrons, or possibly even three. I really have no excuse not to make at least one more.
