3 images of distant front, side and back views of the red sweater – plain bodice with cabled owls on the yoke. 1 image closer of the front with buttons sewn on for the owls’ eyes.

Pattern Name: Owl by Kate DaviesRecipient: kiddo
Size: SmallRecipient: me
Needle size – 9 US/5.5MM for ribbing
10.5 US/6.5MM for the rest
Gauge: as called for in pattern
Yarn: MadelineTosh Triple Twist (Aran)
in Tart/100% superwash merino
Notion: 11MM coconut shell buttons
Yardage Used: 640 yards

Notes: I made the torso a few inches longer than called for or on kiddo it would have been nearly cropped. Which is a bit odd because she’s fairly short torso’d, so maybe keep an eye on that. She only wanted buttons on the front. And she wanted this to be a comfy/cozy and layering sweater, so not as tight as usual.
