What a delightful pattern this was to knit ... and it's even more delightful to wear. I used Zauberwolle, which is 100% virgin merino ombre. The subtle color changes just happened to hit the owl section right, making it look as if they were intentionally highlighted with a lighter color. I chose a matte bead for the owl eyes which was compatible with the rustic look of the organic shawl. I am loving knitting with Zauberwolle and am currently using it to knit the Wurm hat, featured in our January knit-along. Since I had some yarn left over from Hogwarts-Express I knit a pair of fingerless gloves to go with the shawl. And if yarn allows, I will also do a pair to match the Wurm. Stay tuned for more photos!
