Owly Owl


Created almost accidentally! You can use him as an applique for baby things (yes, mind the small parts), but i’d definitely go for a brooch.

Materials List

Any hook and yarn.

Finished Size

2.70 mm hook, bulky yarn and 4 x 5 cm here.

The Pattern

R1:: with color A, ch 5 + ch2. make a dc in 3rd chain from hook (that is, the 5th chain from the start!!), tr  and dtr in next ch, trtr and chain 2- picot on top of that and another trtr in the same st as first trtr, dtr and tr in next st, dc in next st, ch2 and sl st into same stitch as last dc, finish off.
by the trtr, i mean: yo (4 times), insert hook in next stitch to be worked, yo, draw yarn through st, * yo, draw yarn through 2 loops on hook *, repeat from * to * 4 times
R2: (working all R2 in blo, starting at the right hand side of the right side of work) join in with color B into top of initial ch2 from beginning of R1, and ch1. sc in next dc, dc in next tr, dc in next dtr, tr in next trtr. somewhere into the picot, into the stitch below the top-most stitch or point (see pic below), make (1 tr, a chain 2- picot on top of that, 1 tr). into the uppermost point of the picot, make: dc, sc, dc. you’ll be now going down on the left-hand side of the owl, doing much the same thing as on the right side, but reversed.
so: into the other somewhere-into-the-picot, that stitch below the top-most point, make (1tr, a chain 2- picot from there, 1 tr). tr in next trtr, dc in next dtr, dc in next tr, sc in next dc, ch 1 and sl st into top of ch2 from end of R1. finish off
sew on eyes and nose.
