Pattern Description:

A gift to you, I hope you enjoy making Ollie! bj

The "owl" is one of the most popular and beautiful birds in the world. "Ollie" is a handsome fella, full of fun & happiness. He stands just about 10.5 to 11 inches tall, the perfect size for hugging. A wonderful gift for the collector, and perfect for any child or youngster.

"Ollie" is knit in the round, so the only sewing will be his eyes, beak, and on his feet.
Skill Level: Advanced beginner/ Intermediate

Gauge: is not crucial, but the knitted fabric needs to be firm.

All of my patterns are for knitting with dp needles and knitting in the round. No more wasted time trying to sew all those little pieces together. Knitting in the round is really quite easy and much faster than flat knitting. My patterns are written so that they are easy to follow, and include photos and instructions to help you. If you haven't tried making a toy yet, give it a try, your in for a very pleasant surprise!

If you have questions, I have also added a couple of how to videos to my blog at:
