As soon as I saw this pattern, I put it on my favorites list. Then I read that Dani Sunshine included this pattern in a collection called “I Will Absolutely Wear It”. Charlie & Lola!!! My daughter’s favorite and best cartoon! We MUST knit Hot Chocolate!

“And the yarn MUST be bluish-greenish. And the sleeves a little too long. And the body long, too,” she instructed. “I want to be able to wear it next year, too.” So, rustic and nubby Owl Tweet in a Size 10 it was.

I really like this yarn. It is not the softest on the needles, but softens up beautifully after wet blocking. Some might prefer to wear a base layer with it.

The Size 10 is plenty roomy, and she loves it just the way it is. The turtleneck hangs more like a cowl-neck for now. Emma was largely inspired by bouillesdecoton’s project.

Many, many thanks to ladibug for her 2 stashed skeins of yarn! I was afraid I was going to run out of yarn. Finished with a hand full of yards left. Now I have 2 skeins of this wonderful yarn for a little something for myself. :)
