Cladonia by Kirsten Kapur is easily one of my favorite projects! The pattern was so well written, which made the process more than enjoyable!-- Not to mention, I'm in love with the product! However, if you'd like a more budget friendly version, have a look at Dream Stripes by Cailliau Berangere. While it's less "festive", adding a simple looped picot bind off is easily attainable. YouTube.com has oodles of tutorials for this technique!
