I dont care what Red Heart is calling this project (Ollie the Owl), that is NOT an owl. I keep a few exotic birds, and that is clearly a PARROT. Between the little fluff of feathers on his head to the shape of the beak and wings, I have no doubt about it. If anything, this project reminds me of those Hatchables that were so popular last Christmas.

I'm a little confused. You aren't working in rounds, you're working in rows then sewing together at the back. Why not just work it in rounds?

I've made 2 of these- SUPER CUTE. I made one in orange and green. I also made his face a little 'crooked' like he was puzzled. I also make one in pink and purple for my youngest niece. I made the face on it straight to which a wonderful family member of mine said 'What an awesome chicken!' LOL.

Of course I'd make him!! Being a lover of all things owl, I'm ever so happy to see owls all over the place now.I collected owls since the 1960s when they were plentiful,and in style. So glad they're back! Thank you

He's adorable. Can't wait to make him. Thank you so much!!!

I really like this pattern. I would like to do an OWL one in variegated browns and solid browns with Gold Yarn with Metallic Gold for around the eyes. Your pattern can be very versatile. It is a nice starting point for Spring, Easter, Chicks, Blue Birds and Roosters, just to name a few. But I'm going to be busy with making the owl. Thank You.

I will, but in browns--more true to the beautiful owl colors.

I'd use honey & white but would prefer a mohair or "fluffy" wool... love the patterns!

it's adorable and it's adorable in just those colors.

I love it! I would crochet it with blacks, browns, and golds.

No! I don't see an owl. I just see a funny looking chicken?

Yes I would. White or brown

For Sure! Might just be my weekend project :)

It reminds me of the owl from "Mr. Roger's Neighborhood." I would definitely make it :)

I would make this, but would like to add some feathers in an eyelet or shell stitch. It might take it out of the "easy" realm, but I think it would be cute. I will dig out my extra yarn stash and give this a try when I don't have to be working!

I would make this and I like the original colors, but can picture it in many different color combos

I would make the owl. I would use orange brown and gold.
