FO – Owls Sweater

Filed under:Finished Objects,News!,Summer Sweater Sprint — Aileen @ 08:48

You might remember me posting about this one last Easter. This was one of my speediest knits ever but it still took me ages to get around to sewing the buttons on!

Pattern: Owls by the blogger ‘needled’.

Yarn: Cocoon by Rowan, 6 balls.

Needles: 6.5mm and 7mm Knitpicks if I remember correctly.

Buttons: 36!

Because of the big needles and thick yarn this knit up ridiculously quickly! The yoke was a lot of fun to knit and I really like the fit of it. As you can see from above, the waist shaping is knit in the form of darts at the back. I would definitely recommend this pattern if you’ve never knit a circular yoke before; it’s really straight forward. The buttons were a necessary evil but I think they were worth it!



  1. I really love that pattern and your pics make me want to knit it even more now! Gorgeous.

  2. Owls! That is so gorgeous. Thanks for the reminder – I’d seen it before but forgotten about it. Off to add it to my queue now :-)

  3. This is lovely. Am a big fan of anything with birds or woodland animals on! Think that may be even more buttons than I could cope with though :-)

  4. I love how you did the button eyes in different colors! The owls each have their own little personalities.

  5. Hello.

    The owl sweater you created is stunning. My wife loves owls and I am curious if you would be willing to knit a sweater for her and if yes, what would you charge?

    This would be a gift / surprise.

    Let me know.

    Many thanks,
