Pattern Description:

I designed and knit this beanie for the sister of a friend as a birthday present. She loves it!
And I love it, too
Who could resist this lovely owls?
There are owls all around this beanie and at the crown there are seven owls.
As she has a head circumreference of 57 cms I used 3.5 mm needles instead of 3.00 mm needles and only knit the crown of the beanie with the smaller needle size of 3.00 mm.
Note: For smaller heads use 3.00 mm (about 54 cm head circumrefernce) throughout the beanie. But the bigger size will also fit smaller heads. It will then be more toque-like.
It(tm)s completely knit with 4-ply sock yarn of different manufactureres.

Please note: there is also a baby owl cowl available.


Knitting gauge: 1 x 1 inch: 8 stitches and 9 rows in stranded knitting

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • This beanie fits size S and M. (up to 57 cm head circumreference)
  • Note: For bigger heads use bigger needle size or 5-ply yarn (164 yards (150 meters) /50g) or both! For smaller heads use needle size 3.0 mm (about 54 cm head circumreference) all through the beanie.


  • 35 g of off-white 4-ply sock yarn, 35 g of violett 4-ply sock yarn, 15 g of light violett 4-ply sock yarn, 25 g of black 4-ply sock yarn, 15 g of light brown or beige 4-ply sock yarn (yardage about 210m/50g).
