Owl Cowl Sweater
This is what you get when a four-year-old commissions a custom sweater, and she loves it! This sweater is meant to fit with positive ease and have generous length in the body and sleeves. Construction is very simple, but the intarsia color work and its subsequent finishing might be a little difficult for the beginner knitter. You'll need to be comfortable working a tubular cast on and bind off, 1x1 rib, intarsia color work, k2tog and ssk decreases, and m1l/m1r increases. Each panel of the sweater is worked flat, then the raglan seams are joined, then the cowl is worked in the round. It's a fun project to make for the beautiful little girl in your life. She's sure to love it!
