Yardage is for one owl and one owlet; each owlet uses 36 yds.

For all of the worsted weight toys in this book, I used a gauge of 20 sts and 24 rows = 4″ in stockinet stitch, which I achieved with US size 6 needles. For Cotton Fleece and Serendipity Tweed, I went down two sizes in needles, resulting in a different gauge, but producing a dense fabric suitable for knitted toys. It is extremely important, whatever yarn you are using, to produce a firm, dense fabric.

Colors used in the model:

  • 720 (Ash)
