Gauge

Pattern Notes
o w l s is a seamless yoked sweater, knit in the round from the bottom up. The body is worked in one piece with the waist shaped by 2 sets of decreases at the back and sides. Stitches are put on hold at the underarms, sleeves are worked in the round, and body and sleeves are joined into a circular yoke. The owl cable is then worked around the yoke (take your choice of either charted or written instructions), and the neckline is shaped by decreases and short rows. The sweater is finished by grafting the underarm stiches and together. If you would prefer your sweater to have a less fitted shape, you may choose to omit the waist and bust shaping
