Knitting Pattern: Owlet Bookmark

My in-laws are coming to visit next weekend, so I thought I'd make a knitted gift for my mother-in-law. She adores owls and does a lot of reading, which made an owl-themed bookmark a good bet. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a pattern, so I took the owl cable and made my own. I think I wrote it down the way I did it, but definitely let me know if the instructions don't work out.
