Crocheted Owl Instructions

The tiny wire cage...
that sits upon my work table...
 is no longer empty.
I crocheted this little tiny owl to keep me company while I'm working at my table.

If you'd like to make one for yourself here's how:
chain 2
6 sc in 2nd ch from hook
2 sc in ea st around (12sc)
1 sc in next st ,2 sc in next st, cont around (18 st)
1 sc in next 2 st and 2 sc in next st, cont around (24 st)
sc in ea st around for 14 rows
stuff
crochet opening shut straight across
crochet across top decreasing 1 at ea end
turn and cont dec 1 at ea end until there is 1 st left
this forms the beak
fold over and st into place
glue on eyes
tie a few yarn scraps to each side at top for horns

What a HOOT!

    1. Hi Diane! Hope my instructions make sense to you. I'm not much of a pattern writer.
