Crochet Notes - Ollie Owl Blanket

Ollie Owl - buggy blanket!



Yarn Used:
Stylecraft Life DK + oddments of white and orange

Amount:
1 x 100g of oatmeal, 1 x 100g of royal blue, 2 x 100g of mid-blue, 25g orange and white.

Equipment:
4mm crochet hook,
yarn sewing needle
24 black buttons


Squares

Using the It's a Hoot pattern by Amanda Wheeldon found here on Ravelry - make 12 owl squares.
Using the same pattern but omitting the owl - make 16 mid-blue squares and 6 royal blue squares.
Sew together and weave in ends.


Trim

Using royal blue work 2 round in trebles - at the corner do 2 trebles, 2 chain, 2 trebles.
(I actually ran out of royal blue three quarters of the way round the second row of trebles - luckily I had bought a second ball - but you could use mid-blue for the second round).
