I found this pattern on Ravelry by Kayleen Grage using the owl cable pattern originally from Owls by Katie Davies. I've used the owls before in a couple dishcloths I made for the holidays and it's adorable! They will often put little buttons for the eyes, but I decided it might scratch my iPod and kept the owl's eyes mysterious. ; )
