In this cowl, I am honoring the humble Barn Owl, of the family Tytonidae, scientific name Tyto Alba. Gorgeous in coloring and patterning with striped wings reminiscent of this pattern, the Barn Owl seemed a fitting mascot for this fun and funky cowl pattern. Once you get into the rhythm, you’ll soar through this cowl.

Notions: Crochet hook and extra needle for provisional cast on, tapestry needle.
