It might be one of those You Knit WHAT?!?s. Admit it, it does look a lot like a louche knitted briefie. You can breathe - it's not.

Right! The cover design of Annie Modesitt and Drew Emborsky's Men Who Knit & The Dogs Who Love Them. Those curly things are knitted dreadlocks made with a very easy technique. The yarn is Morehouse Merino Bulky in Blueberry, Butter, and Henna.
A fun gift to knit and to give. Should be a fun gift to receive, too.
