Owl Hat

I was asked to design a Owl hat, I decided to write a knitting pattern while I was knitting and designing the hat.   I imagined it to have BIG round yellow eyes and ears.  Then when I researched owls I found out its one or the other but not bother together!!

So I made bigg’ish eyes

I used black buttons for the centre of the eyes.

I noticed that owls with ears also have feathers like eyebrows above their eyes

I wanted the beck to stand out, so I designed a beck that would be stuffed

The ears are at the side of their heads and go out to the side, rather than straight up

    My husband has fallen in love with this hat, but I’m having trouble purchasing it on the link. It says it wants the P&P information. Do you know what that is? and can you tell me, too, so I can buy your pattern, knit the hat, and make my husband happy? Thank you!

      Hi Rose

      I have just tried the link on the left of my blog that takes you to my ebay shop – it took a few minutes to hook up to the shop but it worked from here! If you buy the pattern from my ebay shop it will be printed and posted to you.

      I am in the process of having my website built, you can still access it and buy patterns – even though it is not fully live for search engines to find yet.

      This link should take you to the owl pattern http://www.knits-r-us.co.uk/knitting-patterns/boys/dk-owl-hat. When you buy patterns through my website they are sent as a pdf file to your email account.

      If you still have trouble with ebay email me off the site or reply here and I will contact you through your email address.

      Thanks
