All the animals come to the wise Socrates the Owl for knitting advice. Knit up his body with a simple slip stitch pattern. Then whip up his arms, beak, eyes, feathers, and feet with fun textures.

• 1 ball each in #041 Grey Marble and #305 Pearl Mist
• Small quantities in rust and yellow

Like all of the cuddly creatures in this book, Socrates can be knit to different sizes by using different yarn weights and gauges. Need it oversized? Use bulky or jumbo yarn. Need it tiny? Try a finer weight. It’s as simple as that.
