Owlets

Supplies

A small amount of wool yarn in at least two colors
17 mm safety eyes
E/4 (3.5 mm) crochet hook
Polyfil
Yarn needle

Instructions

Base
Make a crochet circle the size of the base you would like. The example is around 1.77 inches (4.50 cm) in diameter.

Figure 1

Body
Continue crocheting in the round, without increasing, so you make a type of bucket.
Do this until it is as tall as the base circle diameter, so that the base diameter is the same height as the owl.

Figure 2

Stuff and fix eyes.
Sew up top of head.

Figure 3

Stitch several times in each ear, so that the ears stick up and the body becomes rounded.

Figure 4

Using the contrasting color, crochet into the body from one ear to the next.
Keep the same amount of stitches by using a turning chain until the end of the top of the head is reached.
Decrease stitches by not using a turning chain until you have just one stitch left.
Finish off.
