Product details

I've made many hats incorporating owl cables, itâs a favourite texture of mine.This owl is knit using a combination of cables on a reverse stocking stitch background. I experimented here with eyelets for the eyes and long ears, hence the name, ceann cait, the long eared owl. The yarn I was using was practically troublesome; I only had 70 grams ,less than 50 metres and secondly there were huge variations in the thickness of the yarn, from very chunky to very thin. The stitching looks a little wonky in places as a result. I had just enough yarn for a child size version, but for an adult, I would add an extra owl repeat and a few extra rows of ribbing in the beginning and also some more rows of reverse stocking stitch before decreasing for the crown.
