Here is the pattern for this little guy. These are made from Caron Simply Soft.
Tiny Owl Pattern
Use the appropriate gauge hook for desired yarn.
- Magic ring, ch 1, 7 hdc into ring, pull ring closed , join to top of ch 2 (switch colors if you want a 2 color body)
- Ch 1, 2 hdc in nest stitch and each stitch all the way around, join to top of ch 2
- Sl st into next st, ch 3*, 3 hdc into next st, sl st in next st, 3 hc into next st *, ch 3 join with sl st into same stitch as hdc’s. Finish off and weave in ends. BODY AND HEAD COMPLETE
- *OPTIONAL: picot here to make pointed ears (like in the second photo).
EYES: use a much finer yarn and hook to create the eyes. Follow the instructions for row 1 above to complete the circle, then finish off. I use the tails themselves to attach the eyes to the head.
PUPILS, BEAK & FEET: The pupils are made with black or brown yarn and a tapestry needle. I bring the yarn up through the back of the owl, make a knot and go back through the eye, making sure to catch a bit of yarn, then tie off in back. And the feet and beak are just small stitches made with yellow yarn and a large tapestry needle.
The eyes could really be made with anything! Beads, felt, buttons or embroidery stitches.
