I adapted Kate Davies Owls
into a boys bottom up raglan sweater. Lots of discussion ensued with the boy about the neckline, and eventually after much ripping and frogging we got what he wanted. Once it is washed and blocked the loosey goosey stitches for the neck shaping should (at least I hope they will) disappear. The second boy is getting another variation and then, if I am lucky, I will knit one for me too!
Stats: Owls (rav link)
Cascade Ecological Wool in two colors
6mm and 6.5mm needles worked in the round all the way up.
Adaptions: Owls were placed around chest before sleeves were added to create yoke. Simple raglan shaping to neck, crew neck collar.
So how is your holiday knitting coming?
