Round and soft, Rupert likes sitting near the top of the Christmas tree, watching the festivities. This pattern mixes traditional Granny Square crochet technique with amigurumi - cute and retro all at once!
There are written instructions for all parts, with added diagrams and pictures to help along the way. Plus step by step photos detailing how to begin crochet, assemble the parts and finish the embroidery. You will mostly need basic stitches - this is a very simple crochet that takes about 2-3 hours to do.
The finished owl size will depend on the yarn used, it comes up to 8.5cm/3inch tall when made in DK yarn. For smaller owl go for thinner yarn and smaller hook size. Only small amounts of each colour is needed - great for using up odd bits from the stash!
Amigurumi are tightly crocheted toys - try different hooks to get the one that works best with the chosen yarn, usually smaller than recommended on yarn band.
