I am still working hard on the Either Or Mitten. It’s a quite complicated pattern and I’m atm in a bit of a hard spot. But I’m working on it 🙂 So for the next project I need something not too complicated and cute to look at. Which is why I give you: Owl Month!
The reason why owls have their own month – besides the cuteness of course – my bf has a huge love for owls. So this is not a mitten for him, but a theme inspired by his love.
- Moooody Owl Mittens by Anna-Karin Consoli. Published in pansarknitting. Why: I love the graphic pattern of these mittens. I love the single color beak that just makes the difference to the pattern and make it pop. Also I love the expression of the two owls.
- Screech Owl Mittens by Rebecca Reveal. Publsihed in Rebecca Reveal’s Ravelry Downloads. Why: Again a very graphic pattern but in a very different way. These seem very classic to me. It might be the back-feathers that looks a little like hounds tooth pattern.
- Whoo Gives a Hoot? Mittens by Elaine Fitzpatrick. Published in Down Cloverlaine. Why: These are just fun. Simple and easy fun. It just has fun eyes and you can do several expressions with the eyes!
- Owls in a Tree Mittens by Fact Woman from Mod Knits. Published in Fact Woman Deisgns’ Ravelry Store. Why: I wanted something a bit different from the other owl mittens, and these certainly delivers that. They are more like classic color work mittens. They also have a knit braid on the wrist. A classic way of decorating cuffs on the mittens. I need to have at least one pair of mittens with that detail on it during this year.
