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
What do you think to my Great Horned Owl Hat?
