Practicing some owls

My current WIP is the o w l s sweater from needled. I've finished the body and the first sleeve so far and felt the urge to practice some owls for several reasons:

a) I've never worked from a chart before but that seemed to work out o.k.

b) it's been a while since I've worked any cables and I'm glad I did this practice peace as it turned out that my cables were really tight which makes the purl stitches in between look rather loose so that's one to bare in mind when working the yoke

c) I wanted to see at least one full sized owl to make a decision on what buttons to buy and I'm quite happy with my choice

As I was working my sample in the round I thought I might as well turn it into something useful so I made a hat and I'm really happy with how it turned out but see for yourselves:


  1. that is awesome!!! i love it, love it, love it!!!

  2. I absolutely love it. I can not wait to see how the sweater turns out. So cute!

  3. That is absolutely the cutest hat I have ever seen! I really love it! ;)

  4. Love the owl hat, this is WHY I want to learn how to knit! : )
