Meet the biggest owl in town!

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:

Super big crochet owl

He’s 12″ tall and can hold his own in a super-cute kiddie chair:

And he’s huggable!

Big owl crocheted cuddly

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!

    Awesome Nelson! A great idea to use with some of your other patterns. Can you imagine a supersized Roosevelt Monster?!
