Warm up at any cool weather Hoot-enanny in this cozy Fair Owl hat!

With easy-to-follow instructions, this hat can be made in just a few days, and the charted color-work keeps the rounds from becoming tedious. The crown is worked in traditional Fair Isle style.

The facial expressions are added after the hat is knitted: sleepy, winking, happy, weary, scrunched eyes, an owl for every mood.
