Years ago I was into doing ceramics and made a small chicken sitting on a basket and gave it to my sister. She loves that little ceramic dish and uses it for sugar. Anyway, last Christmas I told her I’d make her a cozy to go over her French Press a.k.a. Cafetière. I then promptly forgot her request until she reminded me a couple of weeks ago.

I set about creating what I thought was a chicken sitting in a nest cozy. My husband walks in and see’s it and says “Cute Owl” so I was shocked yet laughed and looked at it closely and thought, yeah it could be an owl. However, once I was done with it I also thought it could be a DoDo Bird.

Anyway, here is the video and if you know how to knit and crochet I believe you can follow the video to make it. I don’t see an option for me to select that this items is a knit and crochet project so I apologize to those knitters who believe this is the wrong category. The hat is knit. The straw is crocheted, the eyes are crocheted. The nose is knit. The basket is knit. The adornment is crocheted.
