Little Black Owl

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. Owl Pattern Makes an owl that is 5″ tall (including the ears) and 4 1/2″ wide (not including the wingspan if you leave the wings free). Supplies 1 ball Chunky weight yarn. Gauge: 3 ½ stitches per inch knit in the round Gauge is not super important here, just keep in mind that is you have more stitches per inch you will have a smaller owl and if you have less stitches per inch you will have a bigger owl. Abbreviations k – knit kfb – knit front and back ssk – slip slip knit k2tog – knit 2 together Body You are knitting the body from the top down. Cast on 6 stitches. Cut off about a 12 inch tail. While still pulling tight so as not to lose your indent, tie the yarn in a small knot to the top of the owl. Ear (make 2) Pick up 3 stitches on one side of the head. Related:  owls

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 I originally made it for myself, but my daughter Lilly has taken it over as her own.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. Also, Happy Anniversary to me and my hubby! If you want to buy a set for yourself, which I highly recommend that you do, click here.

Crafty Tutorial: Super-Chunky Crocheted Infinity Scarf [Giveaway!] | What's For Dinner? | recipes and cooking By popular demand, you can now download the PDF for this pattern here!!! I got a bunch of emails, comments, and tweets asking me to do a tutorial for the giant bulky infinity scarves I’ve been crocheting. Usually, when I get a request for something, even if it’s just one of you, I’ll go for it… So, this is my infinity scarf that I made for myself, though I haven’t worn it yet. It’s been far too warm for a big bulky scarf like this. This post was an entire weekend in the making. Before we get started, if you would like some simple background tutorials on basic crocheting, check out this one and this one. First, you’ll need to buy your yarn. To make the exact scarf I’m showing you, you’ll need 4 skeins of this yarn and an N-gauge hook. How do I know what gauge hook to use? Generally, a bigger hook will yield a bigger or looser stitch, and a smaller hook will make a smaller or tighter stitch. Start by making a slip knot at the end of your yarn, leaving a small tail. Do this 41 times.

The hexipuffs are fun to make because they’re smushy, cute & feel like a little finished project all by themselves. wheeee I love tossing them in the basket! Oh yes, and they are knitted in the round ♥ I made a video blog with more info about them here: This project is most rewarding if you knit it “on the go.” Knit them while you are waiting in lines, waiting for dinner, talking to friends, in the car etc. and see how many you end up with. :) Pattern includes: lots of photos, photo tutorial on the quick, easy way to join the hexipuffs, full color charts for duplicate stitch flowers. ps. joining them is QUICK & EASY! (Also: Because of the way they are connected, if one gets damaged or stained, they can be lifted out easily 1 at a time to be replaced :) join the KAL (knit-a-long) buzzing along here!
