Instant Crochetification: Owlets (part 2)

Hello there, December! Can’t believe you’re here already. It really does feel like it — cold, windy and overcast. But, my day is being brightened by Olly the Owlet. She’s perched here on the kitchen window watching me work

Here’s a closeup so you can see her a little better

Hee hee!  Once I figured out the pattern it was really easy — I’m going to have to make a snowy white owlet next for a Christmas display.  And, another owlet to keep Olly company.

So excited to be able to crochet in the round — now I’ll be able to try making the all the super cute amigurumi I saw in Japan!  Maybe I’ll try to tackle a deer next — like this or this…or maybe a squirrel?  Yeah, that’s it — a squirrel!  And an acorn. Or…!

  3. Oh-so-cute, Lisa!  Oh, a white one would be darling, too!  Love the textured yarn you used–what kind is it?

    1. Hi Julie! Thanks for your comment, made me smile :)

      It is “Vanna Choice” yarn — from Lion Brand — I got it at Michael’s on sale for like $2! It’s really soft, too :) I never knew Vanna White did that sort of thing until that time she was at CHA — were you there then? I think it was the same year that Paris Hilton released her scrapbook line. :)

  4. Lisa…Your Owl is just ADORABLE…WOW!! Love it!! you are so VERY Creative……

  5. This is so adorable Lisa !   :-)

  9. Cute, cute, cute, love it, so glad you were able to finish it up, looks like you had a cozy Thanksgiving too!  Yummy food you had!

  10. I haven’t crocheted in years!!!  But your owl is SO inspiring.  Thanks for the link to the directions.  And I HAVE to ask: did you find instructions for a squirrel?  I did a short GOOGLE search and couldn’t find any.  I LOVE squirrels and would love to try my hand at a squirrel after an owl & an acorn.  Thanks for such lovely inspiration.
