This pattern was originally published as part of the Twisted Cowl Club in August 2012. It will be available to non-club members on November 1, 2012.
For this first pattern from the Twisted Cowl Club, we are honoring the humble Barn Owl, of the family Tytonidae, scientific name Tyto Alba. Gorgeous in coloring and patterning with striped wings reminiscent of this pattern, the Barn Owl seemed a fitting mascot for the opening of the club. Once you get into the rhythm, you’ll soar through this cowl.
