Cute Lil' Owl Applique

Hello Crochet-ers
I found the cutest little owl applique pattern to put onto a granny square or whatever.  I just used some beads for the eyes, or you could use black buttons or whatever you like.   Any color you would like...I used a DK yarn, in turquoise and a rusty color and a 4 mm hook. Another great way to use up bits of yarn.
  Isn't this little guy just the cutest!

Very easy to make:
SC = Single Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
TC = Triple Crochet

Magic Ring, Chain 1, 8 HDC in magic ring, join to first HDC, chain 1
Round 2: 2 HDC in each around, join to first HDC, change color  (16 HDC)
Round 3: Chain 2, 2 DC in each around, join to first DC, chain 1 (32 DC)
Round 4: HDC, in next stitch: DC – TC – DC, SC in next 5, in next stitch: DC – TC – DC, HDC in next, slip stitch to join.
Fasten off, weave in ends.
Eyes: Magic Ring, Chain 1, 8HDC in magic ring, join to first HDC, fasten off leaving a long tail to sew on. Sew on no larger than 1/2″ black buttons in the middle for eyes or use beads.
Beak and Feet:
Sew on yellow yarn with tapestry needle. Loop the yarn through 3 times to make both the feet and beak.
You could add this little owl to scarfs, pillows...endless possibilities.
Enjoy, MO
