Hi friends! I’m popping in today to show you what’s been on my hook this week. Tomorrow it’s officially Fall, which is my favourite time of year! I have no idea why it’s taken me so long to start in on some Fall projects, especially since I’ve been seeing them pop up around the crocheting community and my social media since late August! But better late than never?
In any event, I decided to add to my Fall decor by whipping up this little guy! I haven’t decided whether I will keep him at home or bring him to my office to perch on my desk to keep me company at work. If he looks familiar it’s because I used the pattern for my Owl Throw Pillow, which you can find HERE. It was the perfect pattern to adapt just by using some seasonal colours. I think he would look great in some shades of light browns, burgundy and mustard as well!
In the original Owl pattern, I used Bernat Handicrafter Chunky yarn to make a fairly decent sized owl, however, this time I simply used worsted weight and it created such an adorable, perfectly palm-sized little owl! Wouldn’t he look so sweet sitting inside a Fall wreath?
If you’d prefer a printable or downloadable version of this pattern, an inexpensive, ad-free and formatted PDF can be purchased HERE.
Here’s what I used for this version:
- 3.5mm hook for main (I use THESE hooks!);
- 2.25mm hook for beak, feet and trim around the eyes;
- Bernat Premium Tweeds in Chocolate Tweed (for some reason this line is not available on Amazon!?);
- Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Terracotta;
- Light weight cotton yarn in light brown;
- 10mm safety eyes (or buttons or thread);
- Two medium sized pompoms (optional);
- Tapestry needle.
As mentioned, for this version, I simply substituted worsted weight yarn for the chunky yarn, using a 3.5mm hook, and substituted a light weight (category 3) yarn for the worsted weight parts (beak, feet and trim around eyes) using a 2.25mm hook. Finally, instead of faux pompoms, I made my own multicoloured poms and I love the way they turned out!
Hop over to the original Owl Throw Pillow pattern for the rest of the pattern details to make your own little Autumn Owl!
On another note, I have some fun projects coming up on the blog in the next couple of weeks that I’m excited about! Stick around! 😉
