Pattern Description:

This is a triangular shawl knitted from the top down, featuring 24 cabled owls and a pretty lace border. Perfect for any owl lover!

The example is knitted from 150g of DK yarn on 5mm needles, but it could easily be knitted on thicker yarn with bigger needles to create a warmer, bigger accessory. The example knitted in DK measures 25x45 inches.

This is a written pattern only - no charts.

It is named after Ellian, my friend's beautiful barn owl.


Gauge is not important for this pattern.
