Aren’t owls the most magnificent birds in the world? Maybe it’s their big expressive eyes, beautiful feathers or quirky calls - I absolutely adore them all!

In this 2in1 pattern you will find two of my favourite owls - a Snowy White Owl and a Barn Owl. These owls are quick to make, with simple bodies and stitched details added over the top to add character. Both owls measure roughly 11cm/4inches tall when made with 4-ply cotton yarn and 3.5mm hook.

The pattern instructions are written in US crochet terms, with plenty of step by step photos detailing how to make the pieces and finish the project.
