p3yo3 Winner

nona congratulates the two winners of my p3yo3 contestJessica wins the grand prize for correctly deciphering p3yo3 -- two skeins of Koigu yarn.  And Kat wins the creativity prize, a sheep measuring tape -- nona couldn't resist the juxtaposition of a cutesy sheep with a measuring tape coming out of its butt.

For those who haven't seen Jessica's winning translation, you may be asking yourself, "What is p3yo3".  Well, nona will tell you - p3tog, keeping the stitches on the left needles, yo, p the same 3 sts tog, and slide them off the left needle.  The Elena sweater uses p3yo3 in a 4 row stitch pattern worked over an odd number of stitches as follows:

R1 (RS): Knit
R2 (WS): k1, [p3yo3, k1] to end
R3 (RS) Knit
R4 (WS): k1, p1, k1, [p3yo3, k1] to last 2 sts, p1, k1

nona thinks this stitch pattern would make a nice scarf or pair of fingerless gloves.  What would you make?

Oh my goodness!! Koigu? I'm not worthy of such a lovely gift. Thank you so much!

I think the pattern would be fun for a hat. Nice bit of texture.
