owlsNote: since this post was originally published in 2009, the pattern is no longer free. You can find more information about the adult and child-sized sweaters at the website linked below (scroll down) or buy the pattern directly via digital download.

I cannot send you the pattern because I do not have it.


Here is Terrye’s original post:

Isn’t this the cutest thing? I love it! And the buttons for the owl’s eyes are adorable too. But.. since I’m soooo over winter, I’m thinking a cap sleeve instead of the long sleeves. What do you think? go……here!  http://needled.wordpress.com/designs/

    Hi Kate love your owl pattern please could you email me a copy. sorry to hear that some people are abusing your kindness by selling the pattern on (no good ever comes from theft and I hope they have loads of knots in thier wool!)
    Anyway love the website and will continue to use it found you in the “Knitter” magazine.

    I would love to have a copy of the owl pattern sweater for babies. I made a sweater with that patterns 30 years ago for my son but all I have left is the photo. I would love to make the sweater again for his son- my grandson.
