Knitting Pattern: Owl Softie

I discovered the knitting pattern for this owl from the blog, "Sew I DO" by Novita. It's a wonderful sewing blog and definitely worth checking out. The actual owl pattern is by Lucinda Guy and is called Snoozing Ned. It's a very simple knitting pattern and knits up pretty quick. The most time consuming part is cutting and sewing all the pieces together. I liked how Novita changed up the look of the owl by using a print fabric with buttons and so I decided to do the same. I'm really happy with the way he came out. In fact, I'm already contemplating making a girl version.

TThe knitted owl is really cute, too bad I never learned how to knit. I tried, but it didn't work for me.
