Big Snowy Owl

Big Snowy Owl
There’s something about owls. Is it their baby-wide eyes? Their mysterious nighttime habits? Or their totemic gumdrop shape? I’m not sure, but owls somehow manage to be simultaneously enigmatic and totally lovable. This one is heavy on the lovable!

Little Black Owl Here’s a little black owl to haunt your trees for Halloween. Too bad he’s much cuter than scary! This project is a pretty easy one if you can knit in the round on double pointed needles and know how to do basic increases and decreases. The hardest part is the first couple rows that only have a few stitches. Fingerstaches are pretty cool. (}: (NOW WITH 15% MORE PATTERN!) - KNITTING I knitted this today. I'm quite obsessed with moustaches. It's just an intarsia moustache on a rectangle of stocking stitch sew up one side. Very simple, very quick, very moustachy.

Crocheted Stash Basket It doesn't take many years of knitting before one day you wake up to realize you have a lot of yarn. So you embark on a striped project campaign hoping to pare down, but end up buying more and more yarn because you don't have exactly the right colors, and finally you face one of knitting's truths: stashes are unbustable. And where there's a stash, there's a storage problem. Instead of heading over to the dreaded Container Store, I decided that I would crochet my own storage unit. I imagined something with the feeling of a handmade basket; I wanted it to be nubbly, beachy and beautiful, and so, I turned to Hand Jive's Rustic Silk.

Owl Love You Necklace Hello lovely knitting people! Owls seem to be super hot right now, and I've been wanting to knit a necklace for a couple of weeks now, so I smashed the two ideas together, and came up with the "Owl Love You Necklace." I originally made it for myself, but my daughter Lilly has taken it over as her own. I don't mind though, it looks super cute on her. This pattern is a really quick knit. I've asked my husband for the "Embellish Knit I-cord Maker" for Christmas, which would have made this pattern even quicker to make!

Page 18 Elefante The pattern for Elefante is finally here for the taking. This pattern came to be when a knitter emailed me after spying a tiny striped elephant on a shelf in Itty-Bitty Hats on page 18. She wanted to know where to get the pattern. I had no idea where that elephant came from until a friend (thanks Renee) told me about this . I am sure the original is a crocheted toy from this site and boy oh boy, are the other toys available here ever cute. I decided to make a pattern for a knitted version of this little guy and share it with you here.

Toddler Overalls Can you think about overalls without thinking about Huck Finn? I can't. In order to honor Huck's supremely kicked back attitude, I used Louet's Euroflax Linen to make these overalls. The yarn is rustic and unfussy and, most importantly, it's rugged enough to handle a raft ride down a river. Owlies Free Owl Toy Knitting Pattern by Raynor Gellatly. Hoot Hoo! I'm back again with another freebie for you all. I've had my eye on the crochet version of this pattern for a while now, it looked so simple and the end result is a fantastic whimsy looking toy. Mario Brothers Mushrooms June 27, 2009 These little plushies were requested. They're really quite simple to make, but I have to admit, I had so much fun, I ended up making all those in one day. I love it when something simple and so much fun comes out looking so very cute :) Mario Mushrooms Materials:

Seamus the Owl Knitting Pattern and Tutorial I am writing today from an incredibly icy Johannesburg. Our temperatures have plummeted below 0 C and it’s been freezing cold here over the last few days. I must tell you, I cannot wait for Spring! Today I was inspired to knit up a little owl pattern, I have been thinking of him ever since I made Beans the Cat so here he is… Free Pattern – Grumpasaurus Matt & I have a saying around our house that if one of us is grumpy then we are a Grumpasaurus. I’d been batting around the idea for awhile of knitting him up a toy version of the Grumpasaur & came up with this little guy. I thought he was cute enough to share with all of you. This was supposed to be a stocking stuffer for Christmas & then a Valentine’s Day gift but I actually just finished it yesterday. I had to keep starting over to get the shapes I wanted for the body & the tail.
