A silly looking owl to perch on your lapel . . . I have always thought that even the most miniscule amounts of yarn will come in handy one day and as a result I have acquired a very big basketful of leftovers. This is just a silly but fun pattern I designed as a way of using some of them up. Generally I have used DK weight but sometimes I've used finer yarns and sometimes thicker, but I always use a 3.0mm hook. Sorry I never measured how much yarn I actually used but you won't need much. Only basic skills are required including forming magic rings, single crochet, double crochet and SC increasing and decreasing (US Crochet Terms); the tutorial gives full instructions as well as images.The PDF pattern is an instant download and once you get started I'm here to help if you need it. You may NOT sell, redistribute, alter or publish the pattern. You may NOT sell finished products made with this pattern. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Magic rings, SC, DC, SC increasing and decreasing (US Terms) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 5cm x 6cm approximately PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Any yarn leftovers

I have a degree in Embroidered and Woven Textile Design from Glasgow School of Art and trained as a milliner after graduating. I have been making and creating since I was little girl, inspired by mum, who made everything from dolls house furnishings to the most horrific curtain material (a la Sound of Music) dresses for me. I still remind her! I’d be lost without a needle and thread and more recently without my crochet hook. After years of trying to persuade my Uncle Daniel to teach me, I finally taught myself with the help of YouTube, online tutorials and books. It’s a cliche I know, but I’m hooked. I have a head full of silly ideas just waiting on the perfect fabric or yarn to bring them to life. Finding the right materials has been known to take years but I strongly believe that if you’re going to make something you have to also love what you are making it with. I love what I do and if someone else happens to like it too, I’m a happy bunny x
