This is a long overdue post. He He He. I've been wanting to post the pattern for the Owl Crochet Beanie that I made for my twins. It's a newborn size and now that they are one year olds, it doesn't fit them anymore. We already gave it to our relatives.
I used different yarn colors and 5.00mm hook for this project. Below are the instructions.
STEPS: *ch 4 sl st to form a circle
*ROUND1- ch3, 11dc
*ROUND3 - 48dc
*ROUND4 - 48dc
*ROUND5 - ROUND8 - 48dc
*ROUND9 - ROUND13 - on a diff color 48dc
*count 6 left & right and put a marker
*from 6 count to 16 & put a marker left & right
*from the 6th (with marker) 3ch, dc until the next marker. 2nd row, 2ch, get one strand pull to the 2nd ch get another strand pull until 4 strands then pull all (this is called decrease)
*dc until the last 2 and make another decrease
*ch1 make another decrease & dc until the last 2 & make another decrease
*ch2 make another decrease & another decrease last row for ear flap
*make another one on the other side
*sc the sides Added yarns on the earflap for the hair. Braided on desired length.
