    1. Oh goodness! I somehow missed the comment in March. I feel terrible! As you work the picot edge you will be slowly binding off.

    1. For the football cozy, may I suggest knitting the Baby Snuggy pattern I wrote (it is here: http://knittogetherdesigns.blogspot.com/2009/11/knit-together-designs-babys-snuggy.html) in brown and then embroidering the white stitching on the front. It would look so cool!
