What advice would you give someone starting this project? Pull your ideas and colors from nature, and go from there. The pink owl isn't realistic, but it's fun. :)

Is there a pattern link for this hat? I have a friend with a baby who LOVES owls, I would love to make this hat for her. I've seen other patterns, but this one is much cuter!!

It's all in the yarn! Do you have a Joann's nearby? Their exclusive Sensations line has a yarn called Angel Hair, and the black/beige/white stripes is what I pair with Lion Brand Jiffy or another fuzzy/soft bulky weight yarn. I use an Angel Hair yarn for every owl hat I make-- it gives the hat its softness and feather-like look. I'd be glad to write up a quick pattern, it's pretty simple, especially if you've made hats before.

Definitely, your yarn choice is perfect.

Thank you, I did find the yarn and made an Owl hat. It was such a big hit that I now have 3 more to make for friends. You're right, it's all about the yarn!!!
