Please note, as of 7/23/2020, this pattern is no longer available on Ravelry. When Ravelry redesigned their website in June 2020, their new design immediately created accessibility issues for people. The redesign has caused migraines in some users after just a short exposure to the site, and for others, it has triggered seizures. The response from Ravelry over the past month has been incredibly defensive, with no assurances that the site will get fixed, or providing any information on how they plan to go forward. As such, I cannot in good conscious offer my patterns on Ravelry any longer. I do not have an alternative site set up, and I do not know when I will get to it. If you want to knit one of my patterns, do not ask me to send it to you - instead, I ask you send the powers that be at Ravelry a message asking them to honor the inclusiveness that they have called for for BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ folx and fix their site so it is accessible for everyone.

This is the thing: I freaking hate clowns. So when I decided a cowl in clown barf yarn was just the thing I needed, I was hit with a dilemma: do I go with my first instinct, and name my cowl Clown Barf, or do I go with another name, one that doesn’t make me think of someone who will either make me a balloon animal or kill me in a back alley?

In the end I compromised, and came up with the name Unicorn Barf. It’s certainly friendlier, but it still appeals to the 12 year old boy inside me. Which I think we can all agree is really important.
