Owlies

This is the third little owlie that I’ve made

and I think I’m happy enough with them to share my pattern with you….. hopefully I can write a pattern that makes sense!

Crochet Owl Pattern

I’ve used dk yarn with a 3mm hook for nice tight stitches. With a little white, black and yellow dk yarns for the eyes and beak. I also used, toy stuffing, a darning needle and a couple of dressmakers pins.

Owl body:

Chain 2 (or you can use a magic ring)

Round 1: 6 dc into the second stitch from the hook (6 stitches)

Round 2: 2dc into each stitch (12 stitches)

Round 3: *2dc into next stitch, followed by 1 dc in the next* repeat 5 times (18 stitches)

Round 4: *2dc into next stitch, followed by 1 dc in each of the next two stitches* repeat 5 times (24 stitches)

Round 5: *2dc into next stitch, followed by 1 dc in each of the next three stitches* repeat 5 times (30 stitches)

Round 6: *2dc into next stitch, followed by 1 dc in each of the next four stitches* repeat 5 times (36 stitches)

Rounds 7 -26 1 dc in each stitch (if making a stripey owl change yarn colour at round 10 and every three rounds following)

Tie off, leaving a long tail.

Stuff the body tightly, pushing the stuffing well down so as not to catch in the stitching.

Using the long tail of yarn that you left sew across the top of the owl, sewing the edges together from where you tied off, across to close up at the top of the owls head.

Squidge the stuffing up so that it’s evenly distributed and pinch up the two little corners (your owlies ears!)

Owl Eyes:

Using white yarn, chain 2 stitches

Round 1: 6dc into the stitch furthest from the hook. (6 stitches)

Round 2: 2dc into each stitch (12 stitches)

Round 3: *2dc into next stitch, 1dc into the following stitch* repeat 5 times (18 stitches)

Slip stitch into the next stitch (to neaten up the circle) and tie off leaving a long tail to sew the eye onto the owl.

Make 2 eyes :) and pin them onto the owl to get the position you want and sew into place.

Using black yarn embroider a french knot to the centre of each eye.

Using yellow yarn embroider a beak…… and your done!

I hope this makes sense :)
