One of the most loved children's patterns available from Kate Davies in an extensive size range from 6 months to 10 years with pattern details for aran and bulky weight yarn! Cables are delicately crafted to form a yoke of owls on an otherwise simple sweater in bulky weight yarn. Eyes of the owls can be small buttons or sequins.
These sweater are designed for kids body shapes -- with a shallower yoke depth, and a wider neck than the adult Owls, to allow for proportionately larger heads and smaller chests/shoulders. Please note, pattern is close fitting. You may prefer to go up 1 size for a loose fit with growing room.
Kit includes pattern and yarn. Buttons or sequins not included.
