It's Owls by Kate Davies.
I know, I'm probably the last person in the entire knitter community to finally knit one, but it took me only three glorious days of knitting (hardly knitting, that is. This thing was fast). And better than the just three days it took, it used just one skein of yarn to boot. Take a look at the before and after. The before, or light color in my right hand, is a brand-new skein of the Cascade Ecological Wool all caked up, which is a wonderful value for your money. The one in my left hand is what I have left over from the sweater I knit.
I decided to place just one pair of button eyes on the owls because, first of all, the local store that sells buttons is such a buzz kill that after I leave I want to find a padded room, and second, I prefer to make things with minimal finishing so attaching two buttons is about all I can endure.
The only thing I would do differently on this sweater is knit it from the top down (I think there are notes online about how to do it) because that little bit of yarn that is left over would have given me an extra inch in length for the Body and I would have been able to knit top down until I nearly ran out of yarn. But, that's okay. I like it anyway, and I actually wore it the day before yesterday for practically the whole day. That's a feat for me in of itself.
As far as modifications go, I knit the second size (33" chest) and instead of knitting long sleeves, I cast on 40 stitches and knit 10 rows of ribbing and then increased to 44 stitches among 16 rows. After that, I just followed the directions for the rest of the sweater and adjusted my stitch count on the first couple of the Body rounds so that it matched the pattern on my size. Voila.
