Uh, oh. Maybe my title is too bold of a claim. Maybe there’s a bigger owl in town…
But this guy is definitely the biggest owl in my house. And probably on my block.
Check him out:
He’s 12″ tall and can hold his own in a super-cute kiddie chair:
And he’s huggable!
I used my Nelson the Owl pattern, but crocheted it with a double strand of worsted weight yarn and a size K hook. Feel free to check out big Nelson’s Ravelry Page.
He’ll be on debut at my table at the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival!
I’m really into doing these ‘big’ guys… they don’t require any more crocheting than a normal one (since you’re just using a thicker yarn), but they turn out super-cuddly!
I’m so excited about the oodles of stuff that’s coming up at FreshStitches! Have a peek!
I hope you have an awesome and craft-filled weekend!
Tomorrow, I’m going to share all of the exciting crafty stuff I did at a workshop I went to last weekend!
Awesome Nelson! A great idea to use with some of your other patterns. Can you imagine a supersized Roosevelt Monster?!
So adorable! I can totally see making these for my kids.
LOVE HIM! And I love the idea of making any pattern bigger like this.
A very adorable cute huggable owl, love it.
He;s so cute and a perfect size for hugging.
