Finally finished – Owls mark II

November 16, 2011

Oh, how I love this pattern.

Knitted using yarn doubled on 5.5mm needles.
I adore this, the fit is perfect.

(Excuse the gratuitous boob shot – I just wanted to show off my owls! No, that is not a euphemism)
Mods: Smaller gauge – at least 3-4 more sts per inch than stated in the pattern
Elbow-length sleeves
Moved the back increases to the sides, while keeping the back decreases as set in the pattern – this gave me a much better fit.
Overall I’m very pleased with this – I wear it all the time and it always gets lots of compliments.
