These little owls are ready to be knit by you!
The newest pattern in the Starter series, the Starter Owl comes with instructions written for both flat and circular knitting. Depending on your knitting speed, they can be made in a couple of hours or in a matter in minutes!
You’ll need basic knitting skills like casting on, knit and purl stitches, increase and decrease stitches, and then some simple embroidery will take care of the rest.
The pattern is now available as a download for $5 from the Mochimochi Shop and from Ravelry, and also as a kit (which includes yarn to make one lovely lavender owl and one minty fresh owl)!
Creating this pattern was a big process—it underwent several versions before I arrived at the final owl.
And then I wanted to make sure that it was a good project for knitters at an advanced-beginner level, so I recruited some new testers. They really delivered with the cuteness!
Thank you to Danielle Holke, Andrea Buzsáky, Sally Costello, Kelly Westlund, Stacy Warner, and Sandra Horne!
