Btw, a proposal:
I've made this pattern, and it's actually quite easy. The short row
shaping is pretty basic and no more complicated than a sock. It could
be interesting for a nontrivial project once beginners learn the
basics of casting on and off and knit and purl stitches. I've made
this pattern in black (Tux) and one in mauve (Gown). I don't know if
Gown was ever used outside of games (I think she's in Super Tuxkart),
but I like her.
Maybe we could auction them for Debian funding or something. :-) I'll
try to bring a couple of these already made.
Also, I've been hoping forever for someone to make a wildebeest
pattern. I'm no pattern designer, because I think that requires a
greater sense of shape and space than I have.
