I love to make things…a lot of things! Rarely will you find me without a crochet hook or knitting needles in hand working on a project. And I love to sew and scrapbook, too! My husband and daughter tease me about my crafty obsession. But they are pretty happy, too, when they score something handmade.
I learned my crafting skills at an early age. I come from a crafty family and learned a lot from my mother and grandmother who taught me to crochet and craft. My 4-H leaders filled in the gaps, teaching me how to knit and sew. Then I studied Fashion Design and Home Economics at Kansas State University. Now, I have the privilege of passing these skills down to my daughter.
I have to admit, it wasn’t easy for me to learn. I struggled with reading patterns and following instructions, so I designed most of my own projects. But over time, I finally learned how to follow a pattern and began writing my own patterns. I always like to share this experience with others who are learning to show them that with practice and perseverance, they can learn, too.
Looks like we have 6 more weeks of winter according to Punxsutawney Phil, the infamous ground hog. Don't worry! That just means more time to wear cute winter gear, like this fun Owl Pocket Scarf!
The Owl Pocket Scarf features a warm scarf with two pockets to keep hands warm. As I was designing this, the owls seemed to take on a life of their own, so I made them different like siblings... or maybe cousins. This pattern offers advice on how you can make your own unique owl pockets, too.
Instructions also include information on how to size the scarf for toddlers through adults just incase you need your own after making one for your favorite little person.
Hope you enjoy this pattern and stay warm!
