Pattern Description:

I have always adored spunky little owls. So, when I contemplated a top down colorwork sweater, I just had to use a spunky little owl motif inspired from that spunky little owl from the movies featuring everyone's favorite boy wizard! The yarn is a wonderful choice for colorwork. The colors are vibrant and it blocks wonderfully creating a soft, cozy fabric.
