New Pattern!! "Fringy"

Woaaa...the last time I posted a pattern was November 2010 @_@  Ever since I started knitting sans patterns, I have been designing a bunch of stuff as I went but never got around actually building one.  This one should be a reeeal quickie. 
Before blocking, it was much thinner and felt pretty snug against my face.  I liked the pre-blocked look better, but this work just fine too.  


 The lace pattern is pretty simple and easy to follow/memorize/read from the previous row.   Since (though pretty big) it is a lace, if you try to use a multicolored yarn it will obscure it.  I actually overdyed everything with light chestnut brown to bring down the contrast the yarn originally had.
As usual, when I add fringes I like to make them quite long.  I don't know why, but I like it that way.
Anyho, here it is!  Instant gratification.  I really want to make some handspun yarn to make another one of this.

Available both on Etsy and Ravelry!
