Oh my goodness, Google ‘Crochet Owl Motifs’ and a gazillion options are laid before you.
I am wanting to make ‘Old Brown’ for what I’m now calling the Squirrel Nutkin Woodland Blanket, so I went in search of a pattern.
My go-to site after Attic24 is The Green Dragonfly as I know I can rely on the patterns
This is the Owl Pattern from Bunny Mummy that Green Dragonfly used
Made with Stylecraft Special DK 4.5mm hook, Copper, Walnut and Pistachio with a Mustard beak and Trimit eyes. These eyes are not suitable for attaching to a blanket as their backs stick out too far.
The pattern is cute but not quite big enough for what I have in mind.
I searched some more and came across this little gem!
I think the owl for the blanket will have to be more ‘standard’ but I love the quirkiness of Zuzalinkaa’s designs – you can find her on Pinterest.
Even though there are masses of patterns out there, it looks like I might just have to make my own to get exactly what I want, but I’m so grateful for all the wonderful designers out there for the inspiration.
Now I’m off to see what Nanacathy is having a good old natter about this Friday
