Owls - Rip Off

Do you remember my Kate Davies 'Owls' sweater?
The owls aren't as easy to see in mine as I would have liked and am planning to reknit it this winter in a plain chunky yarn. Kate Davies is one of my favourite designers. 'Owls' is famous! on ravelry there are 5434 owl projects registered!
Today, I have been horrified to find out Debenhams has copied this design. needless to say it is very inferior to a hand knit but there has been  no consultation with Kate Davies. 
Read the story of the iconic 'owls sweater' and see the mass produced copy by going to Needled, Kates Blog. Then e-mail Debenhams to register your disapproval. Then....buy the pattern and make your own beautiful version.
