Owl & Cap
Yarn: Sport Weight
Sizes: 2, 4, 6 & 8/S, L
Owl, the young child’s version of Baby Owl, continues to be a cherished and captivating design. Grown women ask for an adult version! I’m thinking on that.
To celebrate Owl’s ninth printing, I designed a matching cap with owls all around, topped with a small tassel. Back Crosses and Front Crosses create the little owls sitting on tree branches.
Knit on #5 needles, the owls show to best advantage worked in smooth worsted spun yarns in wool, cotton or fiber blends. The hardest part of making Owl & Cap is sewing on all 32 tiny pearl owls’ eyes, while keeping each of them perfectly vertical!
These hard-to-find quality 1/4" two-hole Mother-of-Pearl buttons are exactly the correct size for the owls on the sweaters and bonnets of #C818 Owl & Cap.
Buttons that are made of plastic, that are a different size, or that have four holes, truly spoil the look you want for your charming little owls. If you are knitting any of the owl designs - look no further for these special buttons. Here they are!
We offer these buttons because they are especially hard to locate. You can buy the larger closure buttons for the sweaters at your local yarn store, fabric store or craft store. Those stores will have a good selection of them. May we suggest mother-of-pearl for the closure buttons, too – they come in lovely soft, natural shades with a deep luster - subtle yet beautiful.
