Bears and Bunnies chart #4

Posted on: July 18, 2013 | 2 Comments

I hope you’re more familiar with the charts right now, so let’s have a small experiment. I’ll post the chart for the bigger (and last! – well, almost last, there’ll be just a tiny little thing left) part today, but won’t post the explanantions. I’ll add them tomorrow, and you have the whole day to try and make this part on your own. Ready for the challenge?

The color change section is optional again. If you have changed the color before, do it now also. If not, skip it now, too.
Place safety eyes between rounds 8&9, 4-5sts apart, and nose between rounds 9&10 (I used 6mm eyes). You can also play with the eyes and nose placement for many different moods and personalities.
Start stuffing and continue adding more as you go.
Fasten off, but don’t sew the opening closed. You need only one part like this.

UPDATE: Written instructions
And here’s the written version of the last part of the pattern. I felt that you don’t need more wordy explanation this time, but if you do, please let me know.

    I have the crochet version of your owl cup cozie and just love it. It calls for size 3 yarn but not all size 3yarns fit the number of sc and row required. I am assuming I must adjust hook size for each yarn I use. Speaking of yarn I am having trouble finding darker colors (darker browns and black,grays). Could you tell the brands and names of the yarn you used. Yes I am a newbie at this. Thank you for any information you can provide. I want to make this adorable owl as a thank you gift for a co-worker of my husband.

    Hi Mary! The gauge depends on the yarn, of course, but also on the crocheter – some crochet tighter than others and sometimes there’s a need to change the hook size to adjust. Also, I’m not really confident with using the size x naming system for yarn, and the one I used for the cozy is from a Polish manufacturer, but it’s really close to this yarn (http://www.deramores.com/stylecraft-special-dk-violet-1277) – same content, almost exacly as many meters in both, etc. – so the thickness is also close.
    I’m from Poland, so some of the yarn in my stash is Polish and available only here or online (shipped from Poland). There’s this store that I linked to, though, than has quite a good selection of yarn and allows to search yarn by color and I think you can look for some yarns there – http://www.deramores.com. Also Knit Picks has some nice yarns (www.knitpicks.com) but they only ship to US.
    If you have any more questions or I could help with anything else, feel free to ask (you can also use y e-mail kacprzak_justyna@wp.pl).

    Have a great day!
    Justyna
