Electric-light holder owls

Hi!

This pattern has been a real favourite for a lot of Swedish crocheters since I released the pattern.

The best thing about this is that you can choose to make any character you like with a little imagination. 

The yarn I've used is Catona from Scheepjes, I purchase mine at Favoritgarner (we hope for World Wide Delivery soon) and here is what colours I've used for theese light-holder owls:

  • Catona in colours: 106 (Snow White), 162 (Black Coffee), 254 (Fossil) and 263 (Petal Peach).
  • Hook 2,5 mm.
  • Wadding.
  • Needle and scissor.
  • Safety eyes.
  • Electric candlelight.
  • Glue.

I haven't used more than 50 grams per colour.

As I told you in the beginning, the beanie you can make in to any animal you want, cat, mouse, dog or what you prefer. It's only for you to change the colours if it don't match the character you want to make.

  • The light-holder I clued on the "hands" - make it centered. 
  • Sew on the feet/balls on the legs.
  • And then sew on the legs to the body - sew them on in the front loop from row 8 on the body. About 8 stitches between.
