o w l s
OK, so I think I fell in love with these owls :)
I mean, this is probably the best fitting sweater I've ever made for myself. The pattern is brilliant, I especially like how the shaping at the back turned out, and just look at these owls !
Sorry about not having better photos, I had planned to get some action shots taken this weekend because this sweater definitely deserves it, but the weather wasn't on my side so I had to go with my usual setting.
Changes: absolutely none, probably the first time I haven't changed a stitch from the original pattern.
I also used buttons I had from stash, my aunt gave me a bunch of vintage mother-of-pearl buttons a while ago and I had just enough to use them here, which turned out perfect.
Pattern:o w l s, by Kate Davies
