Small Crochet Owl
I finally did it, I made a small crochet owl. It took a long time although the web is full of good instructions and colorful examples. When I stumbled across the crochet owl by Sidrun I have decided to try her free pattern.
It was quite easy to follow her instructions. The pattern is clear and there are several pictures which illustrate the process. Following the instructions I created my own little owl.
In fact, my owl is a bit special. I changed the eyes as follows: I used ten sc in a magic ring with three picots in the second row to create “eyelashes”. After that I added some wiggly eyes. These eyes are not childproof, but since my little crocheted owl is only on the shelf, that is not really necessary.
The small crochet owl goes particularly well with my collection of Harry Potter books.
