Owl family

Hi everyone!

It’s been a while since I last posted a crochet pattern. So here’s one. Well, three to be correct.

This summer I was looking for a toy pattern, different from the ones I’m used to make and I came across one for a small owl. There were several pattern in fact. I took a bit from all of them and created three versions which I present as a family.

Have a go at them, they’re fun to make!

Happy crocheting.
