Super cute little owlet keyrings knitted with hardy, rustic Voluptuous yarn which lasts for ages with no pilling.
Knitted in one piece so not too much fiddly stitching up.
Make them in as many colours as you like - great little gifts.

A simple pattern but using some advanced skills.

Voluptuous comes in 10g baby skeins - each owlet uses approx 3g.
Use a contrast colour for the beak.
You can find the yarn here.

If you’re not using the recommended yarn, I would suggest opting for something as hard-wearing as possible as your keyring is going to get a lot of wear and tear.

You’ll also need:
A circular needle and an extra DPN in given size.
2 tiny buttons
1 snake chain key ring
darning needle
sewing needle and thread

Skills needed (useful online tutorials suggested in the pattern):
Judy’s Magic Cast-on
Magic Loop
Three-needle bind off

Finished size
Owl without keyring - approx. 4.5cm wide by 3.5cm tall.
