An extremely easy-to-make and cute Owl with a funny face and big sweet eyes, who will make you smile every time you look at him. A companion that will bring tenderness and joy to both children and grown-ups.

Cordell is knitted on the round using double-pointed needles from bottom to head and is about 11 cm high.
I used a bouclé yarn (“Ondina” from Mafil, made in Italy) but you can use whatever textured or bouclé or marled yarn that will give a ruffled-up look to Cordell.
Don’t worry about the gauge, the thicker the yarn, the bigger the owl! Keep the right proportion between the main colour (bulkier) and light yellow (thinner), and choose safety eyes accordingly. Always use a needle that is one size smaller than the one recommended for the yarn, so that the stuffing will not come out.

Enjoy knitting and hugging Cordell!
