Owl Collection is an original crochet pattern by June Gilbank.
Owl Collection is a clever low-sew design: the head, body, legs and wings are all crocheted as one piece, giving you an elegant bird silhouette with the perfect owl posture and an effortlessly smooth result!
Yarn: worsted weight yarn
Hook: E US/3.5mm crochet hook
Additional info: This pattern includes endless options: by varying the colours, the direction the head is looking, and the facial embellishments, you can make your own customised owls.
This is a detailed 11-page pattern. In addition to the written crochet pattern instructions, it includes 45 step-by-step photos for the special crochet and construction methods.
If you'd like to print it out, you can save paper and ink by printing just the written crochet instructions (without the photos, notes or assembly instructions), which are included as a bonus 4 page text-only Appendix to the patten. (If you do this, please refer to the full pattern on-screen if/when you need to look at the photos.)
Size: approx 6" (15cm) tall when worked in worsted weight yarn.
Eye Size: 12mm (Although I used black eyes for my sample owls, you can also use orange or yellow 'safety' eyes with black pupils to give yours an unblinking owlish stare)
