As promised, here is my new pattern - a seriously cute little Owl. It took me a little while longer to write the pattern and take photos of him as I made several adjustments to get him looking just the way I wanted. I got so attached to the little guy, I've named him Percy :) Do you like him?
When making Percy, I used 100% cotton DK. I really enjoy using DROPs Muskat 100% cotton yarn at the moment. Here's a link to where I buy it from, they do really great offers and very quick delivery. To make him stand up, I popped in some dried marrow-fat peas in the bottom just to give that bit of weight. He looks great sitting there on my shelf now!

The tutorial has lots of photos to guide you through making this great fellow, and is a fantastic gift idea for any age, or to just have sitting on a shelf. Don't forget - you can sell what you make (perfect for those craft fairs!)
