Owl Crochet Blanket Pattern Notes
Notes 1. Blanket, eye sections, beak, flower, and leaf are worked in joined rounds with right side facing at all times. 2. Increases are made by working into the top of the indicated stitch and then by working around the post of the same stitch. 3. Rounds 1–6 of blanket are the owl’s body. Owl’s body parts, branches, leaves, and flowers are worked separately and sewn to blanket. Leave long tails for sewing when fastening off. 4. When sewing pieces to blanket, insert the needle horizontally through the top of the stitches on the right side of the blanket so your stitching doesn’t show on the wrong side.
