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.
----------------------------------------------------------

OWL:
Piece is worked in the round with Merino Extra Fine or Safran on hook size 2.5 or 3 mm. Start by making a MAGIC CIRCLE - read explanation above - with green or strong yellow.
ROUND 1: Read CROCHET INFO and COLOUR CHANGE! Work 8 dc in the magic circle.
ROUND 2: 2 dc in first dc, 2 htr in next dc, 1 htr and 1 tr in next dc, 2 tr in each of the next 2 dc, 1 tr and 1 htr in next dc, 2 htr in next dc, 2 dc in last dc on round = 16 sts.
ROUND 3: Switch to pistachio or light brown and work 1 dc in first st, 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st, 2 htr in each of the next 2 sts, 2 tr in next st, 1 dtr in front loop and 1 dtr in back loop of each of the next 4 sts, 2 tr in next st, 2 htr in each of the next 2 sts, 1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in last st on round = 28 sts.
ROUND 4: Work 1 dc in every st the entire round.
ROUND 5: Switch to denim blue or brown and work 1 dc in first st, 1 htr in next st, 1 tr in same st, 2 dtr in next st, 1 ch (= top of ear), 2 dtr in next st, 1 tr in next st, 1 htr in same st, 1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st, 1 htr in next st and 1 tr in same st, 2 tr in next st, 2 dtr in each of the next 8 sts, 2 tr in next st, 1 tr in next st, 1 htr in same st, 1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st, 1 htr in next st, 1 tr in same st, 2 dtr in next st, 1 ch (= top of ear), 2 dtr in next st, 1 tr in next st, 1 htr in same st, 1 dc in last st on round = 50 sts (+ 2 ch). Work another owl the same way. Fasten off.

EYES:
Worked in the round. Start by making a MAGIC CIRCLE - read explanation above - with denim blue or brown.
ROUND 1: READ CROCHET INFO - Work 6 dc in the magic circle.
ROUND 2: Switch to off white or white and work 2 dc in every dc the entire round = 12 dc.
Work another eye the same way. Fasten off.

ASSEMBLY:
Fasten the eyes on the owl. Embroider the beak with mustard or orange as follows: Beg in the mid of the magic circle and sew a stitch down to 2nd round 2 times, and sew from the mid of circle and diagonally down to 1st round on each side of the first stitches; only 1 time on each side.

Then work the owl tog with pistachio or strong yellow. Place the two owls on top of each other, WS against WS, with the beak towards you. Work through both layers as follows: Work 2 dc in ch at the top of ear on the left side. Then work as follows: 1 dc in the next 6 sts, 1 htr in next st and 1 tr in same st, 2 dtr in next st, 1 tr in next st and 1 htr in same st, 1 dc in each of the next 8 sts, insert 1 marker in the last st and work 1 dc in each of the next 14 sts, 1 htr in next st and 1 tr in same st, 2 dtr in next st, 1 tr in next st and 1 htr in same st, 1 dc in each of the next 6 sts and work 2 dc in ch (= top of right ear). Fill the owl with some cotton wool and continue as follows: 1 dc in each of the next 10 sts and finish round with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round = 60 sts. Fasten off.

Work claws in mustard or orange. Beg in the st with marker as follows: * 1 dc, 3 ch, 1 dc in next st, 4 ch, 1 dc in next st, 3 ch, 1 dc in next st *, repeat from *-* 1 more time. Fasten off.

Jeg elsker dette design og det skal være en del af gaven til tøsen sammen med en Filibabba Babynest. Det bliver så flot til den lille ny når de kommer hjem.

Je n'ai que 24 mailles au 3ème rang au lieu de 28 mailles, Pouvez vous m expliquer l' erreur. Merci

Bonjour Evelyne, avez-vous regardé la vidéo qui montre comment crocheter cette chouette? Elle devrait vous permettre de trouver votre erreur. Bon crochet!

Pri spájaní dielov spolu začíname na ľavej strane sovičky (ako je v anglickom popise) nie na ľavom uchu, keďže sova je tvárou k tvorcovi

DROPS Design 18.01.2015 kl. 17:06:

Ano, přesně tak - začínáme na špičce ucha na levé straně sovy (= na špičce levého ucha, jak je uvedeno v české verzi); strany vnímáme tak, jak je vidíme před sebou při práci. Hodně zdaru! Hana

M.m.a. E m.m.d. Cosa significano?

DROPS Design 01.09.2014 kl. 21:59:

Buonasera Marina. M.m.a corrisponde a mezza maglia alta. M.a.d corrisponde a maglia alta doppia. Se può esserle utile, cliccando sul tab video, sulla striscia grigia alla destra della fotografia, trova l'elenco di tutti i video che possono aiutarla a realizzare il gufo. Buon lavoro!

Kan man ikk lave den større? kunne godt tænke mig at lave en familie

DROPS Design 06.08.2014 kl. 16:54:

Hej Isabella. Det kan du vel godt. Jeg kan desværre ikke hjælpe dig med at skrive et nyt mønster, men du kan prøve dig frem og evt tage mere ud på cirklen inden du skifter til brun/jeansblå til kanten. God fornøjelse.

Een prachtig patroon, met plezier gemaakt. Volgens mij zijn echter het patroon voor de grote en kleine uil hetzelfde. Jammer

Rita 07.06.2014 - 15:52:

Das Muster stimmt. In der 5.Reihe werden 22 M. zugenommen.

Steffi 07.06.2014 - 13:51:

Hallo liebes Team, leider hat sich ein Fehler in Reihe 4 eingeschlichen. Die summe aller Maschen ergibt nicht 50. Wo müssen die fehlenden hin? LG Steffi

Liebe Steffi, Antwort siehe oben! :-)
