crochet owl ......

a little owl ...

 

after completing the little fairy's blanket, i decided to stick to small scale crochet projects ...

i found the tutorial for the owl on pinterest ... it is from the Bunny Mummy blog ... you can find it here ...

the tutorial was really helpful and i managed to follow it until i had finished the pink ... a minor miracle, you understand ...

i got muddled with the darker pink whilst shaping the head ... but i sort of made it up as i went along ... and i think i've managed to salvage it ...

i changed the eyes slightly too ... making them smaller and stitching the pupils rather than adding beads ...

all in all ... i am pleased with this little offering ... it would make a lovely gift for a little one ...

but i am determined to master the head shaping ... so will definitely be having another go ...

  10. Oh Bee thats so so fab!

    Are you addicted yet?

    I now cannot watch TV without my crochet in hand, when I do I feel like I am doing "nothing". Now I always have a mini Tv project on hand....that owl would be perfect.

    Well done Mrs!!

  12. Your owl is so cute! I wish I still remembered how to crochet because I love seeing other people's crocheted goodies. My dream item is a granny square blanket. x

    1. Thank you ... the colours were some leftovers from the blanket I made ... it is a great little project to use up small bits of wool ... hope you are well ... Bee xxx

  16. Very cute! It's a good feeling when you master something isn't it? I still haven't got my head around the crochet thing, but that's from lack of effort tbh! X

  17. I love this! I admired them on Bunny Mummy but wasn't sure if my crochet skills were up to it. Great way to use up small amount of yarn too. You say your owl went wrong but it looks fine to me. Have a lovely weekend, Bee.

  20. Even if you think he didn't turn out right, he's still a cute little owl. I'm not the greatest at always reading patterns correctly, but this one seems to be all the rage right now, so will have to give it a go at some point. Have a wonderful day. Tammy

  21. I love your owl! I think it's amazing though that if we put them all together - considering they are all the same pattern - they would all look like different characters. Your owl looks like a very 'friendly' character! Well done x

  22. Aww he is lovely. I have also seen them on Bunny Mummy and there seems to be a shed load of owls on pintrest. But I do love this one and may give it a try. I agree about the blanket bit. I made one last month (seen on my blog) but get more satisfaction from smaller projects..short atttention span that's my problem. Happy making!!
