Leaving a long tail for sewing the owl shut, cut your yarn. Sew the top together about 2/3 of the way closes. Stuff your owl all the way at the top and stuff some extra in the top corner to form the ear. Sew it a bit more and then stuff the other side to create the other ear and finish sewing it closed. You can maneuver your stuffing into the corner when it’s completely sewn shut. The photo below shows how it should look once it is finished.

Eyes:


Sew your buttons on your owl at round 15.

Take Color A yarn: Make a magic ring and add 15 HDC in it. Slip the ring around your button and then close your magic ring. Tie it closed and weave in your ends.

Beak:


Take yellow yarn and thread a V shaped nose. I placed the bottom of my nose in between rounds 11 and 12 and the top throughout three stitches on round 14.

Ears:

You will need about eight strands (four for each side) of yarn about 5 inches long. Insert your hook in the corner of the owl from the back side. Take four strands of yarn and pull them through. Grab the ends of the yarn and pull it through the loop and pull it tight. Repeat on the other side. Unravel your yarn to frizz it out a bit.

Push the middle of the owl down a bit to define the ears a bit more.

And now you’re done! You’ve got yourself a cute plushy owl. I would love to see a photo of your finished product. You can find me at any of the following places:
