Child's Owl & Cap
“No one knows who originally conceived of making owls with cabling but when I opened my first yarn shop in 1962 a dear and elderly customer came in to wish me well and gave me her hand written copy of the owls. From this worn and dog-eared direction I designed this cardigan. Now in its eighth printing, Owl has continued to be a cherished and popular design through the decades. Grown women have asked for an adult version – I’m working on it!
For the confident beginner or Intermediate knitter, it is knit on #5 needles, and the owls show to best advantage when worked with smooth-worsted spun wool, cotton or a blend of these fibers. The hardest part of making Owl is sewing on all 16 tiny pearl buttons for the owls’ eye while keeping them perfectly vertical!
Sizes 2 – 8. Available in baby sizes in fingering wt, #B818.”
