Knit Stuff Owl Toy A Handmade Gift Idea
Cute owls..... they are everywhere! On bedding, purses, clothes, socks and so much more! And it is no wonder! They are adorable! So, while I was over on Ralvery I saw the cutest little hand knit owl pattern. Wouldn't it be cute to knit up several of these and attach them to a knit I-cord for an owl banner for the baby nursery! Or as an owl ornament! Cute, cute cute!!! And they don't take very much yarn or very much time at all. A very thrifty gift that is sure to be loved by a wee one on your gift list!
Instead of using felt for eyes, as the pattern suggested, I just hand crocheted a circle and added cute buttons to the center. Make sure to use safety eyes if the owl will be used by a child.
Want to make a knit stuffed owl for someone on your list? You can get the knit owl pattern for FREE! Many thanks to Jenna Krupar for sharing her pattern!
