Very cute! Did you do the body shorter? It looks like it has very relaxed and comfortable fit. Enjoy wearing it!

Yes. I am only about 5' 3', so obviously 17 inches from the underarm wan't going to cut it. I did 13 inches and then the garter border. I have worn it several times, including today, and it is an incredible fit. Goes in great at the waist, yet not tight, and not too big at the hips. Just right!

Also big to note. I only added back as many stitches to the hip area as I decreased for the waist (8 times at 34 1/2" size). I have done other sweaters that called for that, and it works great for me.

I LOVE your modification! What a great use of the classic cabled owl chart.

Also, just saw your modifications to length. Good job!

The funny thing about the owl chart is that I had to do it upside down, as the original pattern was for a bottom up sweater. This also meant I was working the chart from left to right instead of right to left. This caused the horseshoe cable to point downward, which ironically looks more like an owl's body than the original!
