I'm not sure when I came across the Jip the Owl pattern originally, but I found it in my crochet patterns folder on my desktop recently, and couldn't resist making it as a little gift for a friend.
Did I mention I am currently obsessed with pairing grey with bright colours? Had you guessed?!
The stitching on the owl's tummy is done with embroidery floss and a strand of sparkly thread.
The legs have pipecleaners in them to make him a bit more poseable, and the tale acts as his support.
I actually made the wings a little bigger than the pattern. The entire owl is made in double knitting wool, and I just felt the original wings were a bit too small proportionally.
I think he's a fine feathered friend!
