Owl, the young child’s version of Baby Owl, continues to be a cherished and captivating design. Grown women ask for an adult version! I’m thinking on that.
To celebrate Owl’s ninth printing, I designed a matching cap with owls all around, topped with a small tassel. Back Crosses and Front Crosses create the little owls sitting on tree branches.
Knit on #5 needles, the owls show to best advantage worked in smooth worsted spun yarns in wool, cotton or fiber blends. The hardest part of making Owl & Cap is sewing on all 32 tiny pearl owls’ eyes, while keeping each of them perfectly vertical!
