Little Owl Pattern :) (Free!)


Little Owl(Bow tie version)


Materials:
Worsted Weight yarn (I used Vanna White) in colors brown, white, orange, and blue. (you wont need a lot of the white, orange, or blue)
Size H hook
Black Felt
Yarn needles
Black thread
Washable Stuffing



Body:

With brown, ch 2.
R1: 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook, you will be making this in perpetual round.
R2: 2 sc in each chain around (12)
R3: *2 sc in st, sc 1 in next* repeat around
R4: *2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts* repeat around
R5: *2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts

1 sc in each sc for 15 rounds.

Next Round: sc 14, trc 1, sc 14, trc 1, slip st in next st, tie off. Do not sew together until the rest of owl is complete and sewn on.

Eyes (Make 2):

With white, ch 2.
R1: 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook, you will be making this in perpetual round.
R2: *2 sc in next st, sc 1 in each of the next 3 sts* repeat once more.
Slip stitch in next sts, tie off. Break yarn, leaving enough yarn to sew onto the body. Do not sew on the body yet.

Bow Tie:

Ch 11
R1: Skip first 2 ch, hdc 1 in each of the next 9 ch. Ch2, turn
R2-4: skipping the chains, hdc 1 in each of the next 9 hdc. Ch2, turn

R5: skipping the chains, hdc 1 in each of the next 9 hdc, tie off.

Weave in the ends of the bow tie and cut the excess yarn. Taking the end of the yarn on the ball, wrap around the middle of the rectangle several times.


Finishing:

Cut 2 ovals out of the black felt and use the black thread to sew on the whites of the eyes. Sew the finished eyes onto the body near the open edge of body. Taking the orange yarn, sew a triangle directly under the eyes (this is the beak). Sew the bow tie under the beak, and stuff the body. Sew the top together and tie off.


Hope you enjoy making the little owl :)
