A Parliament of Owls

Today's pattern is one that I've made a few times, with pretty good results.  It's called Cutest Little Owl and I really think it lives up to its name.  A few of my cousins had babies this year and I thought it was a great gift for them.  It doesn't take long to make, doesn't take much yarn, and can be made out of any number of adorable colour combinations.

The blue owl was the first one I made, it was for my cousin's baby boy, who I hear enjoys it (even though I'm sure he's too young to know what it is, or at least he was when he got it.)  The green and yellow ones below were for my cousin's two girls.  The green one went to the new baby and the yellow one went to her big sister (I always hated it when my little brother got a new toy and I didn't).  I hear the yellow one's name is "Amy", and once it was misplaced and had to be located before bedtime was allowed to happen.  (insert 'awwwww' noises here)

Anyway, I don't know how wise these owls are, but I would totally vote for them.

  1. Oliver the Owl gets compliments wherever we go! He really is the cutest, cuddliest thing. His wings are perfect for a quick chew when the gums are acting up too.
    I'm not sure your nephew knows what an owl is, but he definitely appreciates an adorable comfort item.
