Made as part of a personal swap on Craftster, I found this pattern for crocheted owl cable gloves on Ravelry as a free download. My swap partner is as big a fan of Labyrinth as I am, so I thought she'd get a kick out of these owls that are not really owls. It was my first time crocheting cables, and it was a bit tricky at first, but I only had to frog a few rows, and only once, and then I got the hang of it. I made sure to use barn owl-esque colours, because that's the owl Jareth turns into in the movie.

And I sewed on googly eyes, to up the cute factor. I'm pernickety with details like that.
