Pattern Description:

This cute little owl knits up really quick! Add some felt applique for wings, eyes and a beak. Stitch it to a note card and you have a one-of-a-kind card for a child or grandchild, Valentine's Day, a new baby or someone special.

You could also frame the owl in an inexpensive craft store shadow box for a cute wall decoration.
