Knitted, crocheted, and embroidered with a mixture of merino wool, baby alpaca, and acrylic yarn. It took a few tries to get it just right, but I’m really pleased with the end result. It’s definitely one of a kind.

Here’s a front and back view of the big one. The back view (the second photo below) has gotten some interest on instagram, and I wonder if I should keep at the asymmetrical, colorblock patterning more often. Colors used: day-glo pink, chartreuse, yellow, charcoal, heather grey, orange:
