Silly Owl Brooch
I have always thought that even the most miniscule amounts of yarn will come in handy one day and as a result I have acquired a very big basketful of leftovers; just like most of you I expect! This is just a silly but fun pattern I designed as a way of using some of them up.
Generally I have used DK weight but sometimes I've used finer yarns and sometimes thicker, but I always use a 3.0mm hook.
The pattern uses US crochet terms and only basic crochet stitches are required including single crochet, increasing and decreasing. It gets a bit fiddly joining the wings but hopefully my notes explain this step well enough for you to complete your brooch. The tutorial gives full instructions as well as images.
