Since THIS PATTERN Is insanely easy to manage, I’m going to attempt to write a pattern for a bigger owl. Using the same basic idea, but increasing the stitches all around. This pattern was written as I was crocheting it, as much to keep my attention on counting and to give myself a workable pattern [as well as, write my own pattern *gasp*!]
Gauge is unimportant, as well as hook size. Bigger Hook=Bigger Stitches=Bigger Owl
I used an I hook with worsted weight yarn
Step One; Make a Magic Loop and DC 12 times into it
Step Two; DC Twice into EACH DC around [24 DC]
Three; *1 DC, 2DC in the next stitch* repeat around [36 DC]
Four-Eight; DC for whole round [36DC]
Nine-Twelve; [Change color -optional-] DC for whole round
Thirteen; *1 DC, DC2Tog* around [24 DC]
14-16 DC around [24 DC]
Seventeen; *1 DC, DC2Tog* [12 DC]
Eighteen-Nineteen; DC Around [12 DC]
*Stuff the bird*
Pinch the two layers together and Crochet through them both for; 1 DC, 1HDC, 3 Sl st, 1 HDC, 1 DC [ears]
WINGS [make 2]
One; make a slip knot, chain 4
Row One; DC in second and last chain, ch 2
Row two; DC in each  ch 2
Row Three; DC across [4 dc] ch 2
Row four; 5 DC [continue until wide enough]
Optional; Take another color of yarn and SC around the main color. Make two rounds with it, embellish as you wish.
For the face, just go wild.
The first picture is the actual appearance of the owl currently. The second one, my room mate put Golf Tees for eyes. I liked the placement, so when I add eyes I’ll remove those. They make him look crazy and kind of creepy.
This is my current project- a White Drop Stitch headband. I’m planning, once I get it to length, to make a piece of knit fabric and make it look like a bow. OR, perhaps making a little crochet flower or bow and attach it. Or maybe both? Idk. This is basically working off of the It’s a Cinch thing. But I’m adapting it for a more summery, airy style.
This will be available on Ebay, as early as tomorrow evening or afternoon, if you’re interested. The price will probably be around 6 dollars, since that seems to be my go-to for headbands. Also, this one’s not spectacularly difficult, so I can’t justify charging more. Shipping will most likely be free, or just enough to pay for the shipping label.
The pattern I’m following, in case you’re curious is;
Cast on 22 [or whatever you feel like, the cast on doesn’t appear to be really important here. Thick, thin….It all works]
I’m knitting the first four rows.
Then, I pick up a stitch like I’m going to knit it, and instead of wrapping once, I wrap three times. Then pull the wrapped thread through as though regularly knitting. Do that for each stitch.
Then, knit the first loop of each set of three, and let the other yarn overs slide off. Do that for each stitch.
Then simply knit the next three row [I count the first knit row after the dropped stitches as row one] and just repeat.
Went teal this time- I have pink and some other colors in my stash that I’ve got no real plans for. I may not use my variegated yarns for these since I have plans for most of my other yarns. I’m adding this one to the shop, as well. Both this and my white headband have free shipping [because the padded envelopes I’ll be using are only like 18 cents, so I wouldn’t feel right charging shipping].

I guess I lied about that cowl, with this lovely wine colored yarn. I made a hat! It looks pretty good, and the best part? It’s reversible! One side, slanting lines. The other is clean and crisp. I kind of like it. It was going to be a beret, but I don’t have anything to block it with. :c
