She is having a girl and has chosen colors of cream, lilac and sage for the nursery. They also have had one wall painted with a countryside mural. With that in mind, I set about looking through my patterns for something cute. I was also looking for something quick since I need to have it arrive on time and so I decided against most of the patterns in my Evernote folder. Of course, the very last one in the folder... perfect.
This pattern is not really a pattern per se, but rather a set of "here is what I did, kind of". It requires basic crochet skills, knowing how to achieve a circle in crochet, as well as decision making skills. Just the kind of off-the-cuff pattern I was looking for! These Owlets are meant to be pretty small, but I wanted to make it bigger, so just following the patterns same loose guidelines, I made one that came out at around 7 inches wide by 7 inches tall by 6 inches deep or so.
