best pal, birthday gal

I just heard from best pal that she has received her birthday gift. I tried to capture best pal's khaki and t-shirt style with this one--I think I managed that. But try as I might, this little biscornu wouldn't give me a good photo.

Can I just say how much I love making these? I love making these! It's not just the cool way it becomes eight sided; I also like the ladder stitching finishing. That is the kind of finishing I can handle!

Free pattern here.
NN Blue Bayou, which turned out to have way too much white in it for my taste.

Interesting. That NN really did have a lot of white in it for the name Blue Bayou, but I think the biscornu turned out beautifully anyway. :)

The biscornu is gorgeous, I love the little beads on it.

Cute!
But now I'm curious about this "ladder stitch" finishing?
Did I miss something?
