Cindy bought a cute magazine called Crochet Today with an adorable owl pattern tucked inside. I decided, following my attempt at a yoga bag (that's for another post, friends) to try this owl. He consisted of several single crochets (sc or sk-uh) with a few sc2togs.
One important rule that I continue to read and blatantly disregard is measuring gauge. Always measure the gauge. Okay. I didn't learn that from the yoga bag. And I did NOT learn it here with the owl.
Ian insisted on helping stuff the owl, so on Sunday afternoon, I rushed to finish the body of the owl, as my son can be very focused on projects. Here he is, adding the fiberfill and showing off what appears to be a very large and decidedly un-adorable owl. Granted the poor thing is missing a beak and wings. But still. You can look and compare. I think you'll see what I mean.
Sc2tog! Mercifully, it doesn't really matter what size the owl turns out to be. I do happen to have enough yarn to continue and try to make the owl the right sc2togging size.
And a thanks to my sc2togger blogger and friend in crochet mishaps for giving us a place to showcase them.
