A dear friend of mine loves owls. She's in luck because owls are super trendy right now! For her birthday I decided to try out this popular free owl pattern. The finished object is very nice. I used much larger yarn than the pattern calls for resulting in a much larger owl. If you decide to try out the pattern for yourself, be aware that it has some really weird color changing instructions. Ignore them and use your own judgement like I did and you should be just fine.
Such a cute little bird! It's also kind of a blank slate that's begging to be dressed up with little scarves, bows, etc. I'll most likely be making more in a variety of colors. What add-ons would you like to see adorn our little fellow?
