Getting started…
We will start by crocheting the top of the owls head, and work our way down to the body. The head and body are made in one continuous piece! After this we will make the arms and beak. Then, we will make the feathers. The feathers are made by a crocodile stitch. I show you exactly how to do this! However, this stitch may be harder for a beginner crocheter.

Feathers: (Optional)

In White

The feathers are made by using a crocodile stitch. This stitch is a little difficult if it’s your very first time making one. However, after making a few you will get the hang of it! Note that every Ch 3 we make in the feathers WILL count as 1 Dc.

Row 1: Ch 4. SlSt to first Ch to form a circle  Ch 3. This counts as 1 Dc. Dc 4 more times into the circle Ch 1, Dc 5 more times into the circle

Row 2: Ch 3. Dc into the side of the Dc. Ch 1, Dc into the middle space Ch 1, Dc into the next st. Dc into the last st.

Row 3: Ch 3. Do not turn the work Create 4 Dc going through the first Dc as shown

Ch 1. Dc 5 times going through the next Dc. When you do this, make sure you turn the work so the hook is going left-to-right in the Dc Ch 1, SlSt in the next Dc

Ch 1, make 5 Dc going through the next Dc Ch 1. Make 5 Dc going through the next Dc We will now refer to this as an crocodile stitch!

Crocodile Stitch Tip:

Note: When making the dragon stitches, every time you’re making the first 5 sets of double crochets for the dragon stitch, you must have your current row facing as shown Work the double crochets into the Dc post in the direction shown

When you work the second set of 5 double crochets for the dragon stitch, make sure your work is then flipped to the other side as shown Work the double crochets into the Dc post in the direction shown Doing this will make sure the stitches look right!

Feathers: (Continued)

In White

Row 4: Ch 3. Make 1 Dc into the side of the next Dc Ch 1. Dc into the next space Ch 1. Dc 2 times in the next Dc Ch 1. Dc 1 time in the next space. Ch 1. Dc in the next 2 st.

Row 5: Ch 3 and do not turn Make 4 Dc going through the first Dc Ch 1. Make 5 Dc going through the next Dc  SlSt in the next Dc Ch 1. Make a dragon stitch using the next 2 Dc. Ch 1. SlSt in the next Dc. Make a dragon stitch using the next 2 Dc
