Pattern Type: Knitting

Level: EASY+

Skills needed:
Knitting basics (casting on, knit, purl & slip stitches, cable knitting, binding off, seaming)

When I was pregnant with my son over a decade ago, I impulsively bought so many owl themed things — stuffed animals, clothes, toys, etc. Why? I have no idea — blame the pregnancy hormones, maybe? Now that my son’s a tween, I’m getting nostalgic about his baby years and thus, the Owl Blanket idea was born. Knit in three shades of Lion Brand Basic Stitch Anti-Pilling, this design features loads of meditative garter stitch and just a few simple cable stitches to shape the owl. Personalize yours with a variety of color options.
