I JUST LOVE HOW THIS ONE CAME OUT
I had purchased some super bulky yarn awhile back when it was on sale, however I could never find just the right pattern or look. I played around with some patterns until I gave up and tried it on my own. I used just your basic concept and just love how it came out.
