The most work on this cardigan was done during Christmas holidays, but somehow this project had waited for finishing touches till June..
Now when it’s finished I can’t wear it even for a photo session – it’s too hot!
I made up a pattern myself using the so popular Owl motif.. First I wanted to make this cute pullover, but as it’s mega popular on Ravelry, there are already 7471 projects based on it! I thought I should make up something else, something unique, but with owls :)
The front piece with the tree and an owl on a branch came up very quickly. The back, however, didn’t come easy: I had to unravel it a few times and make it again and again until I was happy..
The picture below renders the colour of the cardigan closest to reality. It’s not that rainbow coloured as on other pictures..
I used “camel brown tweed” from Ice Yarns bought online on winter sale. It’s 40% wool, 30% viscose and 30% acryllic. Very nice yarn, although very fine, so I knitted with two strands of yarn at once..
I’m quite happy with my owl project and hope to have some wear of it in autumn..
Thanks for looking and have a nice day!
