Welsh Wowligan

It’s been a summer of small people. A friend from university is having a baby (!) with his wife (!) imminently, and I made the wee Welshperson a jumper.

In the nick of time Scottish knitting maestro Kate Davies published her long-awaited Wowligan pattern. This is a cardigan version of her Owlet jumper. Anyway, the day she published Wowligan, I started knitting!

This pattern was great. I added stripes to make it more interesting – and Welsh! I think for future editions of this pattern I will do the owls’ eyes in knit rather than purl if doing them in colour work. The purls make it look a bit like the owls are crying.

You can see this project on Ravelry here. Unbelievably I have the honour of having posted the very first finished Wowligan on Ravelry!
