I worked on this mobile for the past 4 months. The items were all just waiting to be assembled. Sometimes it takes some 2-3 hours just to put it all together and I really didn't manage to squeeze that time in, this whole summer. I've been overwhelmed with wedding videography and Etsy orders.
With my leaving around the corner, I want to complete as much as my work as possible and I asked my mum to help me put it all together last night.
My newest item ready to ship.. in my Etsy shop now. (https://www.etsy.com/listing/164596654/pink-owls-baby-mobile-crocheted-ready-to?ref=shop_home_active)
It includes a music button I hid in the middle star hanging from the moon.
It's a "in between projects" project and I love how it turned out. It's not made for any custom order just born out of an idea I've got.
The owls are a super simple original pattern. For those of you that crochet, I am writing down the pattern I used for the owls.
The stars and the moon aren't my invention (of course I modified the patterns to suit my project). Here are the links:
Before sharing the pattern I have a request: please don't steal the concept.
I am ok with you doing the owls in your own project. You can sell it or gift it as long as it's not the copy of my work. Please be original. Thank you! (a link back to my page will be greatly appreciated too if you post the owls anywhere).
My way of writing down patterns :p all messy and in my own language:
AMIGURUMI OWL PATTERN- CROCHET
I don't really use gauge. I can tell you I am using DK yarn and a 3mm crochet hook. But this would suit any hook and yarn.
Disclaimer: there are tons of similar technique owls on the internet. I did see a lot of them before I made my own counts.
My way of patterning:
sc - simple crochet
sc 2 - simple crochet in the next 2 stitches
2sc - increase
R1: Start with a magic ring
R2: Crochet 6 sc in the magic ring and pull the loop tightly.
R3: 2 sc in each stitch (12)
R4: (sc1, 2sc) - around (18)
R5: (sc2, 2sc) - around (24)
R6: (sc3, 2sc) - around (30)
R7: (sc4, 2sc) - around (36)
R8: (sc5, 2sc) - around (42)
R9: (sc6, 2sc) - around (48)
R10: (sc7, 2sc) - around (52)
R11-23: sc 52
R24: (sc7, dec) - around (48)
- 4sc, 3sc, sc21. When you reach at the other end you need to make another ear so: 3sc, 4sc, sc 23 back to where you started.
Stitch it together filling it up as much as you want with fiberfill.
I cut out felt eyes and stuck them up with fabric glue. You could use any type of eyes you want.
I also forgot to write the pattern down for the beak :p but any triangle shape would do. Even felt cut ones to save you some extra work and time.
I hope you liked my small pattern. If you notice any inconsistencies let me know in a comment.
Also, I'd love if you left me a link to the work you've done. I'd love to come comment and share it with my readers too!
