Release the Hounds(tooth)

If you've been following me on Facebook, you may know that I've started re-testing and updating my patterns. It'll be a long haul to finish them and even though going cross-eyed is definitely a possibility, I've had a lot of fun going back to them so far. Each pattern's facelift involves a full upgrade to my new pattern format and a detailed re-test by me and my testers.
My Avalanche Beanie and Along Came a Spider Beanie were the first to get the upgrade.
Avalanche (24) (333x500)
Avalanche - Adults
Spider (10) (500x400)
Along Came a Spider
Avalanche (21) (332x500)
Avalanche - Kids
Until my Houndstooth Beanie I haven't needed to make any major updates, but that changed with one word... EARFLAPS! A friend put the idea in my mind and I knew instantly that I wanted to try it. I started on them that night and had them perfected by the next morning. They worked up so effortlessly that I can't believe it took me this long to try it. I hope you love them! They are available in the Toddlers, Kids and Adults sizes.
Here are the other updates you can expect to see in the new pattern:
* NEW options: Earflaps and Adults slouchy instructions
* Detailed materials, including yarn amounts
* Corrected gauge measurements
* Added size for babies
* Updated photo tutorials
* Added space for you to write notes
