Hooty and his Owl Pals

 

Knitted Owls Two Ways

Sometimes the simplest little pattern can deliver some big results. Owls Two Ways by Anna Clerc is one of those charmingly basic patterns that is so easy and rewarding to add your own crafty spin to. Felt, buttons, snips of ribbon, and pieces of thread from your scrap basket go a long way in making these little guys your own. I’ve really enjoyed stitching up my little knit owls. I thought mine needed wings, which I knit like so:

Knitted Owls Two Ways cast on 12 sts
join in round
knit 2 rows
(kfb, k2) around
k 6 rows

k6,(k2tog) around for 2 rows
k 1 row
k4, (k2tog) around
k3,  (k2tog) around
cut yarn and pull through stitches. You can stuff wings if you like, or just fold them appropriately and stitch to body

Carli had fun with crochet owls too:

Carli felt that wings were a good addition, so she whipped up some wingly mods too. Here’s how she did it:

ch 5
hdc in 2nd ch from hook and in each chain across
ch 1 and turn
1 sc in the next 3 stitches then 3 sc in next stitch
do not turn – you will now be working in the beginning chain – work 1 sc in each chain across
finish off.

Whooooooooray for Owl Pals! ♥

    Cool, Owls n’ Pals. Suitable for however you decide to use them.
    Knit and crochet and maybe some felt or fabric ones, too, for those
    who sew. Whoot, Whoot!! These would definitely cheer up one’s day!

    I’m not sure which I like better… the knit or crochet. They’re all good.
