This adorable owl cable looks great in the colour Oak or well, any colour really! These would make perfect gifts (if you can bear to part with them!) Choose from either a solid colour owl knit in the round or for the more adventurous knitter a two-tone owl mitten knit flat using intarsia. You can easily knock out a pair in an evening, making them wonderful for the busy Christmas knitter. Glove comes in 2 sizes (6"-7" and 7"-8" hand circumference), adjustments for other sizes are also given in pattern. Use DK weight yarn and smaller needles for child sized gloves. This pattern is available individually and also as a collection with Take a Bow and Uno. I don't believe Craftsy is set up to do promotions but if you visit my ravelry page you can get all 3 patterns for 7 saving you 2 at checkout. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic knitting skills including cables and knitting in the round. For two-tone owl you will be using instarsia GAUGE 18st and 25 rows to 4" in stockinette stitch using largest needle size.

I love the creativity of knitting and enjoy exploring new colours, fibres and techniques. I learnt to knit when I was five (I think!) from my mum and grandparents, since then I haven't stopped! As an experienced knitter I take a lot of time and care over my knitting patterns to ensure that they are as accessible as possible to newer knitters, you will often find helpful hints, tips and ideas dotted around my patterns. For some patterns there are help pages at the end, brilliant for less experienced knitters but can also be easily omitted by more experienced knitters who want to save their printer ink. I enjoy sharing my craft and skills and hope to introduce many more people to knitting. I hope you have as much fun knitting my designs as I did creating them!
