My owl basket has been request in a knit version ever since I published it in 2013.
Now that I’ve taken on knitting, I’ve designed a knit version as close to the crochet version as possible.
The best thing about it is that you know if I can make it just about any beginner can as well.
The basket is even sturdier than the crochet version by creating a double wall that keeps it standing whether full or not.

Merry xmas to me.
This was a total impulse buy. If you didn’t know already, I love owls (and obviously crocheting.)
Put them together and I just had to have it. This cute little ornament was too good to pass up.
I purchased it from ScratchCraft on Etsy and they have one left, though I’m sure they can make more if you have to have one too.
I just had to share the cute. I’ll take a picture once I put it on my tree at the end of the month.
Been at Legoland this past week and just had to share the adorable Lego Owls I spotted.
If only they sold the kit for them. Might have to try this one.
Back to regularly scheduled crochet soon. 🙂
Owl Shawl Pin

So the newest giveaway will get you this cute little guy.
He is very lightweight at 2 1/4″ x 3″ and made of surina wood.

Reversible Trio of Forest Baskets
My newest pattern is here!
These reversible baskets are a great way to try out Fair Isle Crochet.
Using medium worsted weight yarn, you can start with the small leaf basket to get your feet wet and eventually move on to the large owl basket when you’re ready.
Not only are these baskets cute, but they are practical. You can reverse from pattern to a solid color by simply flipping them inside out.
Get them for free with any purchase in my shop.
There is no minimum amount to purchase.
Just add this pattern and another to your cart and put promo code: freepat in at checkout to receive a discount for the amount of this pattern.
This offer is good until Sunday, Nov. 17, 2013 midnight Pacific time.

I finally finished the Cabled Owl Washcloth pattern. It is now ready for your download enjoyment (lefties click here)!
Be sure to let me know if you have any requests for future videos. You can leave requests in the comment section.
Plus I’ve got some exciting news coming up soon, so follow the blog to be one of the first to find out what it is.
No time soon!
I’m making up a new video on how to make this cabled owl washcloth. The cabled owl has been around since the 70s in knit form — I know this because I found an old ad for a pattern in one of my vintage magazines. I wanted to come up with my own crochet version of it and this washcloth is what happened. I’m 3/4 of the way finished with the video and should hopefully have it up by next week. If you’re not following the blog already, now is a great time to sign up. You’ll get notification as soon as it’s added!
If you’ve ever purchased my Tree of Love Afghan, or Hootie Who Owl Ornament Patterns and wished there was a video tutorial on how to complete the Bobble (or cluster stitch as it is called in the owl pattern), well, wish no more. I have worked up a video so you can see exactly how to do the stitch without having to read the massive written directions for this simple stitch.
And just in case you don’t have these patterns yet, here they are for you to check out.

Skill Level: Easy
This monochromatic owl basket is simple and chic with a twist. It’s generous size (28 inches around by 12 inches high) can hold three full size rolled up towels. But don’t stop there! Use it to hold toys in the kid’s room, or odds and ends in the living room. Using thick yarn it is sturdy and can stand up on it’s own, yet can collapse flat when not needed.
