I used Louise's fantastic tutorial at cakejournal (dot) com to make this.
Two 9" oval layers (yarn balls are cake also). Patchwork Cutter's basketweave embosser for the side pattern, shish-kabob skewers for the needles, and an extruder for the yarn. All MMF. Couldn't decide if I liked it better with or without a bottom trim, so I posted both.
