Please tell me you see them? They are there... I see them... do you?
I asked the boys what they thought they were?
Owls! A dozen little owls. I've been admiring this pattern since October. I am proud of this little cap since I figured out how to convert this pattern to use DK weight yarn on size 2 and 3 needles. The original pattern calls for Worsted Weight yarn and larger needles (size 6). I added one extra owl to make the numbers work out. I struggle with math, so it was an accomplishment for me to get the numbers to all work out. In case you are wondering, I will be adding some buttons to make the owls eyes more prominent. I will probably add eyes to one or three owls. I'll post another photo when I sew on the eyes, but for now... I was just so excited to show you all my latest cap!
