Product details

These cute owlets were inspired by my Oliver Owl Sweater motif and my daughter’s request that I should design a softie with the same fleecy, white yarn used in that design. I, therefore, decided to stick with owls and base my softie on a baby owl similar to the Oliver Owl motif and to make him a friend for company! Oliver and Olivia stand unaided, at a height of approximately 6cm/2.25in.  The owlets are knit flat on two needles using DK weight yarn.  To make larger owls you could use a chunky weight yarn or to make them smaller you could use 4ply; remember to use smaller needles than suggested by the yarn company so that stuffing does not show through.

I used Sirdar Snowflake as the main yarn and have suggested Sublime extra fine merino DK for the contrast yarn; however only a small amount in the contrast colours is required, so you could use any oddments you may have in the same weight as your main yarn.
