Designed by: Sahrit Freud-Weinstein

Project Type: Seasonal, Home Decor, Christmas

Required Supplies:

  • RED HEART® Soft®: 1 ball each 1882 Toast A, 9114 Honey B, 4422 Tangerine C, 9388 Wheat D, and 9870 Deep Sea E
  • Susan Bates® Crochet Hook: 4mm [US G-6]
  • Yarn needle

Additional Supplies Needed:

GAUGE: 19 sc = 4″ (10cm); 22 rows = 4″ (10cm) in single crochet. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.
Owl measures 6” (15 cm) tall
Special Stitch
sc2tog = [Insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop] twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.
Special Technique
Adjustable-ring method—Wrap yarn into a ring, ensuring that the tail falls behind the working yarn. Grip ring and tail firmly between middle finger and thumb. Insert hook through center of ring, yarn over (with working yarn) and draw up a loop. Work stitches of first round in the ring. After the first round of stitches is worked, pull gently, but firmly, on tail to tighten ring.
Notes
1. Only small quantities of B, C, D, and E are needed for this project.
2. Gauge is not critical for this project. Work tightly so stuffing does not show through stitches.
3. For sections worked in continuous rounds, place marker for beginning of round and move marker up as each round is completed. Do not join rounds until instructed to do so.
