If you’re among those who asked and waited patiently for the Whimsy Owl Family, thank you for your forbearance. The pattern has been released, so your wait is over!
The Owl Family works up fast and the pattern features:
- Three sizes (SML)
- Directions for solid and striped versions
- Tips and tricks
- Easy modifications
- A handy Quick Reference guide to help you use yarn from stash
Individually or as a collection, the Owls function as cloths, coasters, hotpads or pure decoration for special occasions or everyday use. Simple, sweet and just a little silly, they never fail to make me smile.
In any combination, Papa, Mama and baby owl are:
- Fun and decorative
- Easy to customize
- Perfect for partial skeins and scraps
Opt for matching pieces or mix things up with a variety of sizes, colors and combinations.
It's easy because:
- The design uses increases rather than decreases to create a reverse mitered garter square. This approach allows you to control size and make changes as you work.
- The pieces remain compact and portable for quick knitting on the go.
- The bias technique is easy to master and equally easy to memorize.
- The color work is a snap: Only one color is worked on a row, there’s no stranding involved.
- The yarns shown are worsted weight cotton-wool blends, but the design adapts to different yarn weights and fiber types.
- The pattern is simple enough for beginners, and a handy Quick Reference guide helps you rapidly adjust size, yardage, etc.
