Notes

This is hands down my favorite owl sweater pattern--well, it is the original after all. I have made dozens!

I knit the pattern as per, but knit the sleeves top-down, set-in with short rows which is much easier for me and makes a better fit.

I have knit this so many times that I hardly even look at the pattern, so that’s why my button bands are knit in garter stitch instead of seed stitch. Oops! Still works though.

This pattern runs small, FYI.
