Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid holes in the middle (instead of ch-ring): Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the yarn over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull yarn through loop, work 1 ch, then work dc around the loop. When the desired no of dc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten the yarn end at the back.

CROCHET INFO:
Beg every round with 1 ch and finish with 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round.

COLOUR CHANGE:
To get a nice transition between the colour changes, work last sl st on round with the new colour as follows: Insert hook in last ch from beg of round, make a YO with the new colour and pull it through st on hook.

Selbst ach sovielen Jahren ist die Eule süss. Es hat alles geklappt und sieht echt süß aus. Danke für die Anleitung.

Zsófi M. 10.02.2018 - 21:42:

The hungarian translation is not correct compared to the German and English ones. According to the hungarian translation it is not possible to crochet, Instruction is missleading. Please correct.

Kerstin 25.05.2015 - 00:11:

Vielen Dank für diese schöne Anleitung. Hat perfekt geklappt.

Lies 06.05.2015 - 15:46:

Klopt het dat beide uiltjes hetzelfde patroon zijn? Groot en klein? Ik vraag me dan dus af of ik de grote of de kleine uil maak

DROPS Design 06.05.2015 kl. 17:31:

Hoi Lies. Het patroon is hetzelfde, maar omdat je de kleine haakt met Safran en naald 2,5 en de grote met Muskat en naald 3 worden er een verschil in grote.

Bi 02.04.2015 - 16:14:

Bij me helaas komt dat niet echt mooi en succesvol uit// dat is eerste keer met jullie modellen, ondanks dat ik alle instructies en hulp van Drop design heb al gebruikt.

Dinuska 12.01.2015 - 09:59:
