The Moonlight Owl Pattern and Story

 Hello, Lovelies! Thank you for visiting this pattern. Just to let you know that I am completely revising the pattern and will re-release in my Ravelry Store in 2019!

It's been a truly crazy busy few weeks here in Four Seasons in a Day, Cape Town! I'm not joking when I say I spend at least 10 minutes gazing at my cupboard trying to decide what to wear. Layers, yes I know, but I really don't know how to layer. I need help. I am rubbish at "fashion"! Anyhow, between all the latest house renovations. Long overdue I might add. I have managed to maintain some sort of emotional balance by making sure I get a fair share of hooky time in. And I am so into this pattern designing thing. I can't stop! I'm slowly getting the hang of writing them out. perhaps not as well as could be but then I am still learning. Also, putting together PDF's. My sons are impressed. They are all very tech minded.

I designed two simple options for the border. Some like it lacey, others prefer something a bit more robust. :-) This square works up really quickly once you get the hang of it. I can picture a beautiful cushion cover, a lovely throw or perhaps a sweet vintage look blanket?

I hope that wherever you are in this crazy world of ours, that you are putting your feet up and enjoying a well-earned bit of hooky!

  3. Tried to download and kept getting file errors. Very beautiful tho.

  4. Hi Monica!:) Thank you! I've tested the Link now, several times, and it seems to be opening without a problem. I'm not sure why you're experiencing a problem on your side. :-( Try again and let me know? If you still can't download it then I can email you the file from my computer.

  5. Hello Jen,
    Thanks so much for your generosity in sharing this beautiful pattern. I'm having some difficulty in round 10. It says "Ch3 and sc around the ch3 “loop” from previous round", however there are no instructions for a ch3 loop in the previous round, only ch5 loops. Am I misunderstanding something? Thanks in advance for your help.

  6. Hi there! Yes, you are absolutely right. Strangely, this pattern did go through a tester! Thank you so much. I've just re-written that section. I think my pattern writing "skills" are improving over time, I hope! :D Let me know if this makes more sense now? I've refreshed the PDF link.:-)

  7. Beautiful square and beautiful story!

  8. Beautiful Pattern!! Cyndy Bowman

  13. Since it is now 2020, is there a link to the pattern?
    It's gorgeous!


  14. These are great but when I try to get the free pattern as it said on the page I found this

    “ This pattern is available for free.
    This pattern has been retired”

    What that means ?!?!?
    If it is free why I couldn’t find it and if it is retired then why you advertise it as free ?!?!?
    I do just confused! That is all !!!
