I found this pattern last week, I've knit 3, finally getting it right, I hope, on the last one. I'm planning on giving it to my boss Debbie.
I know it's really Christmas colored, but it is the Holiday's after all. You can knit them in any stripe pattern you want or just one color.
I have learned that the felting of it is a pain in the butt. My washer doesn't agitate enough and I had to do it by hand. It took me 30 minutes. Next time I'll just go to the Laundromat.
