Little Owl {crochet}

Friday, 28 December 2012


As part of the FoQ swap with Lucy I made her little one a little owl hat - promising Mr MiH that I would make a similar one for Baby MiH. I waited for Baby MiH to be with us, good thing too as he does not fit in any new born clothes, and in fact is bordering wearing clothes for supposedly 3-months old. Skinny and lanky, that's my little boy... 


So much easier to have him model when he is asleep!

Owl hat I promised, owl hat I made. I changed a couple of things in comparison to Lucy's hat. I had to make it one size up, I changed the black light fingering yarn for some blue one and added some gold bling for the beak (it is Christmas after all!). 




 Pattern: Easy Owl Baby Hat Crochet Pattern by Posh Patterns (bought through ravelry)
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn (Merino Worsted) in Pearl, a recyled yarn similar to Revive by Rowan (linen colour), and a light fingering yarn in blue for the body; 
Organic cotton yarn for the eyes and 
orange yarn I have for the beak with added gold Anchor Metallic Fine yarn   
Needle size: 5.5 mm hook for the body; 4.5 mm hook for the eyes and beak



The fact that I managed to make it whilst looking after a newborn (admittedly Mr MiH is still on paternity leave) may tell you how easy this pattern is. It looks great though! The pattern comes in different sizes, so I should be able to make bigger ones too!

  8. Too precious!! Both Baby MiH and the hate are too cute! I had a long and lanky baby too. After a short period of chubbiness between starting solid food and her walking she's been long and lanky ever since.
