Pattern Description:

This is a gorgeous design featuring cabled owls. The set includes a beret, cowl and fingerless mitts. All of the patterns are available individually on my website: www.SmartCatStudios.com/knit.html, if you prefer just a single design.

A little ol' owl who was so lonely
Decided to knit his one and only.

And quick as a fox, he'd knitted a girl.
Now you'll find them in their tree
Hootin' it up for all to see.
