Owlie Shawl - toddler, child, adult


    A snuggly, owlie shawl, with a line of owls along one edge. 3 sizes means one for all the family, and great as presies for others.

    This is knitted in the same way as an asymmetrical shawl, except you start large and decrease. The end result is virtually a triangle, with the decrease edge running along the top. The skill level is easy/intermediate, as you need basic skills and simple cabling, simple even if it’s your first time! Instructions are written line by line in English, with British/American terms. There is a front cover that can be omitted when printing, if desired.

    A warm over-coat scarf for a Winter’s walk or a cosy cool summer’s eve shawl. Lots of matching owl patterns available.
