Owl Sweater

The latest of my knits was a fun challenge I made for myself: I rewrote the pattern to better suit my own tastes. The original sweater pattern has a cute owl motif done in a simple openwork style, but the sweater itself was less appealing to me. It had these 80s drop sleeves that I just was not crazy about. It was also knit flat, in pieces, to be sewn together at the end. I decided to rewrite the pattern to be not only knit in the round, but to have raglan sleeves instead of the drop sleeves. I must say, I'm pretty pleased with my results! I used DK Swish yarn from knitpicks.com, and it's machine washable and so soft and comfy!
