Materials:

If worked with the suggested yarn, the finished figure will measure approx. 20 cm.

The listed wool and hook sizes are only suggestions. It is, of course, entirely your

personal choice, which yarn you use.

• Yarn: several different personal favourites, small amounts of white, black and

yellow (eyes, beak and feet) – I used Schachenmayr Catania colour.: silver (172),

stone (242), sun (208), gold (249), vanilla (403), taupe (254), camel (179),

cinnamon (383)

• Optional: black thread

• Crochet hook according to your yarn choice (for my yarn choice 2,0 mm – all

components except, 2,5 mm – feathers und 3,5 mm – hat)

• Stuffing

• Pipe cleaners or craft wire

• optional: Safety eyes for the teddy bear, i used 6mm. Alternatively you can

embroider the eyes.

dsc = Drop Single Crochet – insert your hook into the row directly below the working

row, work your sc as usual

hdc = half double crochet

MR = Magic Ring

ch = chain

st = stitch

66.5ch, 1sc in the 1. ch (5th chain from hook), slst in next sc <- repeat to end of

row

End of, leave a very long tail for sewing.

Eye (2x):

Make in white

To get a true circle, i worked in finished rounds, ended with a slip stitch and chain to

start. You can, of course, work in continuous rounds.

1. MR – 6sc (6)

2. (inc) x 6 (12)

3. (sc 1, inc) x6 (18)

4. (sc 2, inc) x6 (24)

5. (sc 3, inc) x6 (30)

End of, sew in end or fix to the back of the eye.

Pupils (2x):

Make in black

1. MR – 9 hdc (9)

Close ring, leave long tail for sewing. The pupils are sewn to

the bottom of the white eye. See photo for placement.

Eyelid (2x):

Colour of choice B, e.g. stone (contrast colour of the owl)

You are working in ROWS, turn your work at the end of each row and begin with a

chain.

1. MR – 4sc (4) – do not close, do not tighten

2. Inc x 4 (8)

3. (sc, inc) x4 (12)

4. (sc 2, inc) x4 (16)

5. (sc 3, inc) x4 (20)

6. sc in each st (20)

Do not turn, chain 1 and crochet sc along the straight edge for a neat, nice finish,

join with a slip stitch to the first stitch of the last row.

Place the eyelid onto the white eye, position the eyelid so that just about the bottom

half of the pupil is still showing. Crochet the lid and the white of eye together with a

single crochet, carry on around the bottom of the eye, you should have 30 stitches to

the end of the round. Finish off with one last round of single crochet, worked only

into the front loop. The eye is now finished. Fasten off and leave a long tail for

sewing.

Beak:

yellow, e.g. sun

1. MR – 6sc (6)

2. (sc, inc) x3 (9)

3. (sc 2, inc) x3 (12)

Feet x2:

yellow, e.g. sun

I found a great video tutorial on youtube that shows how to make the talons, I

personally much preferred using this technique to making individual tallons (or

fingers) and than sewing these togther. You can find the video here (click) Be sure to

adjust the stitch count to my pattern. :o)

1. MR mit 6sc (6)

2.-5. [4 Rounds] sc in each st (6)

6. (sc, inc) x3 (9)

7. sc in each st (9)

8. (sc 2, inc) x3 (12)

9. (sc 3, inc) x3 (15)

10.(sc 4, inc) x3 (18)

You will now work the first talon:

11. a) 2sc, insert hook into next stitch and then into

16th stitch (3rd stitch from end of round) finish

1sc, turn your work, insert hook again into 16th

stitch (this time you are ONLY working in this one

stitch) work 1 sc, 2sc (6)

12.a) -16. a) [5 Rows] sc in each st (6) – you are

continuing 30 sc all around

Fasten off, cut yarn but do not close yet.

Turn your work so that the previously worked talon is to the right, your usual

working direction. Repeat the steps for the 1st talon. Insert your hook into the last

stitch of the first talon, yarn over and pull through..

b) 1sc into next st, 1sc, insert hook into next sc AND 13th sc (6th sc from end of

round), complete sc, turn your work, insert hook again into 13th stitch (this time you

are ONLY working in this one stitch) work 1 sc, 2sc (6)

13.b) – 17. b) [6 Rows] sc in each st (6) – – you are continuing 36 sc all around

Fasten off, cut yarn but do not close yet.

Both talons are on the right side of your work. Insert your hook again into the last

stitch of the 2nd talon, yarn over, pull through. As this is the last talon, there are no

special instructions for this part.

11. c) – 16. c) [6 Rows] sc in each st (6) – you are continuing 36 sc all around

Fasten off, cut yarn.

Insert pipe cleaners into each talon, starting with the middle one. I fold the end over

and twist the end tightly to make sure no sharp ends poke through. Repeat with the

other talons and close up. Thread a darning needle with the tail and pick up the front

loops of each stitch only, pull the end to close up, insert remaining tail back through

the opening and hide inside the talon.

Leg (2x):

Colour of choice A, e.g. silver (main colour of owl)

1. MR – 6sc (6)

2. inc x6 (12)

3. in backloop only: sc in each st (12)

4. (sc 3, inc) (15)

5. sc in each st (15)

Fasten off, leave long tail for sewing.

Sew foot to leg..

Wings (2x):

Colour of choice B, e.g. stone (contrast colour of

owl)

1. MR – 6sc (6)

2. Inc x6 (12)

3. (sc, inc) x6 (18)

4. (sc 2, inc) x6 (24)

5. (sc 3, inc) x6 (30)

6.-7. [2 Rounds] sc in each st (30)

8. (sc 9, inc) x3 (33)

9.-10. [2 Rows] sc in each st (33)

11.(sc 10, inc) x3 (36)

12.-16. [5 Rounds] sc in each st (36)

17.(sc 10, dec) x3 (33)

18. sc in each st (33)

19.(sc 9, dec) x3 (30)

20. sc in each st (30)

Next you will work the feathers, following the same principle as for the talons.

Firstly, the small feather:

21. a) 3sc, insert hook into next sc and 27th stitch (4th stitch from the end of the

round) work 1 sc, turn and insert hook again into 27th stitch (only this stitch this

time) and crochet 1 sc, 3sc (8)

22. a) – 26. a) [4 Rounds] sc in each st (8)

27.(sc 2, dec) x2 (6)

Fasten off, close (see instructions for the talons).

Next follows the middle feather. Insert hook in the last stitch of the previous feather,

pull yarn through:

21. b) 4sc, insert hook into next stitch and 22nd stitch and work 1 sc, turn work and

insert hook into 22nd stitch (only this stitch this time) and crochet 1sc, 4sc (10)

22. b) – 28. b) [7 Rounds] sc in each st (10)

29.(sc 3, dec) x2 (8)

Fasten off close (see instructions for the talons).

For the big feahter, insert the hook through the last stitch of the middle feather, pull

yarn through, then work:

21. c) – 32. c) [11 Rounds] sc in each st (12)

33.(sc 2, dec) x 3 (9)

34.(sc, dec) x 3 (6)

Fasten off, close (see instructions for the talons).

All the indiviual pieces for the owl are now finished and can be assembled. (Refer to

the following photos for help with placement. First, lay the feathers, with the picots

facing downwards, onto the head and body, pin initially and sew when you are

satisfied with your placement. Next, add the beak below the feathers on the face,

add the eyes and sew down once you are happy with how they look.. Use a small

amount of stuffing for the legs and sew them to the bottom of the body. If you are

making the accessories for the owl, pin the wings in place and sew them after the

teddy and candle holder have been finished and placed.

Hat:

Colour of choice C – hat colour (eg. creme)

Hook size 1.5mm larger than the other parts (for me 3.5mm) Measure and adjust the

hook size if needed to ensure a proper fit of the hat.

• MR – 6sc (6)

• 6sc (6)

• inc, 5sc (7)

From here, increase in each round until you have a total of 48 stitches. It is best to

offset the increases, for tips on how to do this, please see www.zhaya.de and look in

the hints, tips and tutorial section.

Now continue as follows:

• (sc 15, inc) x3 (51)

• (sc 16, inc) x3 (54)

• (sc 17, inc) x3 (57)

• (sc 18, inc) x3 (60)

• [8 Rounds] sc in each st (60)

Finish off with one round of drop single crochet. To do this, insert the hook into the

row directly below your working row and finish your sc as usual.

Fasten off, sew in tail.
