Click here to see a video showing how the Egg to Owl Reversible Toy works on my Instagram:

The Egg to Owl is an adorable reversible toy that starts as an egg and when turned inside out becomes a sweet little owl. You start by knitting the egg that has an opening on the side. After picking up the stitches around the opening the Owl’s body is knit from the bottom-up. The head is worked separately and is stitched to the top of the body. This is the only seam in the entire the toy.

The ears, wings and feet are picked up and knit on. Safety eyes are used for the sample but are optional. Embroidered eyes would work fine as well. I suggest using the spiderweb embroidery technique to create round eyes. Here is a link to my favorite video tutorial by Kristin Nicholas for this technique:

Other materials needed:
A small amount of fiberfill
Detachable stitch markers
9mm safety eyes (optional)
Ruler or tape measure

Have fun with your Owl-y reversible toy!

Pattern note: On pg. 2, at the bottom of the first column a couple of words were cut off. It should say, Leave the stitch marker on the first stitch.“
