Owl Christmas Jumper

Just in time for Christmas, I finished my knitted Owl Jumper. I am a little bit proud because it is my first knitted jumper (and my 2nd knitted garment) and I even made slight adjustments to the pattern.
Here come the owls!
Pattern: Owls by Kate Davies. When I saw it, I just fell in love with it because of the little owls at the neckline. Having been an owl fan even before the owl-trend started, I just couldn't resist!

See the little black buttons? Love that detail :)



Wool: Cascade Yarns Eco + in Merlot. Because of the color, I think it is suitable as a Christmas jumper, hehe.

Pretty from the back as well.
Construction: It took me only one and a half month, so pretty quick and easy :) You can see my Ravelry notes here, if you are interested. It took me longest to knit the sleeves! They were so boring, but otherwise it was fun :) (It was no fun, however, to sew on 40 little 5mm buttons, buh, took me a while.)

Look me in the eyes, hehe.


Have I worn it yet? Nope, because the UK weather is quite warm at the moment. But I will wear it in cold Germany, where it will keep me warm and cosy.


Do I like the jumper? I love it! The color, the fit, the OWLS!

One more to go, just because :)
Last one!

  1. It amazes me when people can knit up a beautiful sweater like yours :) I also was an owl lover before the trend so it was awesome to see yours on the sweater! Great Job!

  5. I love love love this! I also have the pattern earmarked (I promise, I'm not copying you 😊) but I still haven't finished my Miette! Your owl is one of the best I've seen, the colour is just wonderful.

  6. Cute jumper! This pattern is also on my to-knit list so it's good to see another version of it. It's a great colour and, while the buttons may have been a pain to sew on, they're just right for the eyes here!

  7. This is gorgeous!! And I am amazed that it's you second garment! I love this pattern, but haven't made it myself. I have made fingerless gloves based on this pattern (I think that pattern was called Owlings), and it had about eight owls. I was losing the will to live sewing on the eyes for them, so I can understand how fourty eyes was not fun! I'm off to find you on Ravelry now.
