Quincy Quade Quentin - A Very Memorable Monster
Short Description: Oh boy! It's my first pattern with a recommended weight of yarn! I have been helping out at my local yarn shop recently and have fallen in love with all of the amazing self-striping sock yarns in there. After days of gazing at them and thinking to myself, "Man, that would make a really cool monster!" I came up with a great pattern to showcase those cool stripes. Not only is sock yarn colorful, inexpensive, and great to work with, most sock yarns are washable, making them great for toys. Plus, there is always a bit left after finishing a pair of socks, and Quincy Q is a great way to use up those bits!
