Who Loves Owls?


Remember this Work-in-Progress?  Back then it looked a lot like a bag, but it turned into this little owl pillow.  The pattern is from the book Little Crochet by Linda Permann, but I spied it originally on Pinterest.  I didn't stray far from the original color scheme, but added a little magenta to brighten it up.

{my version- I also stuffed mine with a prefab pillow and did not include the top zipper}

The only issue I had with the pattern was the size.  When I started the base, it seemed much too small, as I had intended it to be a comfy pillow to lean on while reading.  I ripped it apart and doubled the pattern, but after 5 rows realized it might end up body pillow-size and would take a long time to finish.  So I ripped it apart once more and followed the pattern as written.  As you can see, it came out just right (although Livie was not happy that the owl was flying off to a new home)!

Awwww! Yours is SO much cuter than the original. Love it! And it looks like I'm not the only one. You may have to hook up another one pretty soon!

that is SO cute, and the owl's not too bad either ;)
Well done, but I think Paula's right, looks like you might need to make another one soon.

Your owl pillow is gorgeous. Love those big eyes and the colours you have used.
Thanks for visiting my blog and your lovely comments. Yes, the mystery is a snowman - I like to try and stay cool when things heat up around here.
So far we have only had a couple of hot days but Summer just started!
The miniature is completed too - another snowman.
