September Amigurumi CAL Owls Week Two

Posted on September 23, 2017 by Brenna Eaves | 0 Comments

Welcome, welcome back to the Amigurumi Owls CAL! This week we'll be putting the finishing touches on our owls by giving them wings, feet and little scarves!

Back to Week One and/or the supply list

 

Abbreviations:

ch = chain
sc = single crochet
sc dec = single crochet decrease
slp st = slip stitch
rep = repeat
BLO = back loops only
NIBL = now in both loops
FO = finish off

 

Onwards! 

Wings

ch 5

1.  2 sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 2 ch, 4 sc in last ch, turning your work so you’re working along the bottom of the ch, sc in next 2 ch, 2 sc in same ch as 1st 2 sc (12)

2.  2 sc in 1st 2 sc, sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next 2 sc, sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in last 2 sc (18)

3.  2 sc in 1st 3 sc, sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc, ch 1, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in last 2 sc (25)

4.  sc in 1st sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc, slp st in next sc

FO leaving remaining stitches unworked. Weave in the beginning tails of the wings only, use the FO tails to sew the wings onto the body. The tops of the wings should sit at about round 12 of the body. I recommend pinning them on before sewing to allow you to make adjustments before committing. 

I've only sewn about a 2-inch portion of the wings to the body so I could, if I wanted to, tuck a note underneath a wing. Owl post in action! 

 

Feet

Make 2

ch 2

1.  5 sc in 2nd ch from hook to form a semicircle

FO and sew the flat edges of the semicircles to the underside of the owl, to the row where there are loops exposed from working in BLO. 

 

Scarf 

With scarf color of choice, ch 4

1. sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, TURN (3)

2. sc in each sc across, TURN (3)

Continue working straight turning rows until the scarf is long enough to wrap once around the owl's neck and touch ends without stretching (for me, this was 46 rows). FO and sew the two ends together so you have a circle.  

To hide the seam of the join and create the false tie on the scarf, make another, much shorter length of scarf (for me, this meant about 16 or 18 rows), FO and fold it over the seam on the circle (the chain edge should line up with the bottom of the circle, just barely peeking out). 

Secure the false tie by sewing that peeking-out chain edge to the row of stitches it touches (on the short length of scarf), creating a loop that goes around the circle piece and hides the seam! Weave in the ends.

A Note About Comments

Furls Crochet Team

Hey everybody! Shortly into our CALs we realized that our out-of-the-box blog comment system wouldn't let us reply to your comments.

We've since installed Disqus, above, which allows you guys to respond to each other and us to reply to your questions; seems like a no-brainer!

We will continue to display existing comments from the old comment system on all existing blog posts. All future commenting will be done through Disqus. Enjoy!
