Wide Awake Sleepy Owls Knitting Pattern


These cute owls are wide awake on one side and fast asleep on the other. Using a bulky weight yarn with two strands knitted together the owls are quick to knit.

Instructions and photos are used throughout the pattern for the three different size owls. Buttons and crochet embellishment complete the features. The owls are knitted in two pieces then sewn together.
