What a Hoot

Knitted Owl Hat and Fingerless Gloves

So a friend of mine (she knows who she is) sent me a link to a knitted hat that she had taken a shine to. (A not very subtle hint). I was very happy to discover that there was a free pattern available to download from 'Julie is Coco and Cocoa'. No one can resist an owl or two so how could I say no?

... and then to my delight I discovered there was also a free pattern to download for a pair of Owl fingerless gloves. How fabulous!

I felt the need to make a few tweaks to the original glove pattern as I wasn't keen on the thumb design and the OCD in me wasn't happy that the owls came out of the wrist rib in different ways so I adjusted these. 

Didn't take very long to knit up as made with aran weight wool on 5mm needles. I was very happy with the result. Tu-whit tu-whoo!
