It is very frustrating! Boxes pop up so much that I can hardly read your page. If I didn't like this afghan so much, I would not bother to visit this site.
Hi Sherry! In order to keep this blog a free site, I use third party ads to compensate. There is an ad-free printable you may purchase. Sorry for the frustration!
Love this little owl. Cant wait to see the rest! A bald eagle would be cool.
So you crochet the owls and then sew them onto an already crocheted granny square, is that right?
Yes, that's totally right! 🙂
My husband's Aunt has been looking for an owl pattern. Looking forward to sharing it with her.
I Fell in love with this owl! But trying to find a granny with the owl as the actual center of the granny that goes out from there. I've seen hearts, etc, but not an owl. is there any way in your professional opinion to accomplish this? Would it be ok to make your owl and then try to expand it on my own?
This owl is so cute and I would love to make it. Is there any video tutorials for the owl. I am dyslexic so really struggle to follow patterns.
I have a friend who loves owls. Will make this little one to sew onto a towel hanger
I made her. Thanks.
Hello Maria! Thank you so much for the adorable Woodland Granny Squares! I love them! I was just wondering how many skeins of each of the colors of yarn (Lion Brand Vanna's Choice) you would use for an entire owl (only) afghan?
Hello! When it says you 1sc, 2sc 11 times do you repeat till the end of the row or just do 11 times and tie off? Thanks!
don't forget the 4 hdc before the repeated part, and another 4 hdc after, should bring you right to the end (or beginning, since it is in rounds)
How do you secure the owls to the squares without the yarn you use showing on opposite side?
I have a tutorial on how to sew on appliques here:https://mariasbluecrayon.com/2018/07/crochet-tip-how-to-sew-appliques-onto.html
Basically, you sew it onto the top layer of your crochet so it doesn’t show on the back! 🙂 I hope that helps!
Hi, In your list of material there is a G hook and and E hook, but in the pattern it says H hook.
Please clarify. (thank you for providing a free version, it is very much appreciated!)
Thanks for asking! That must be a typo. Use a G hook for the body.
Love your creations !
