Athena Owl Stocking
The completed stocking will measure 17” x 6”, I would describe it as a full sized Christmas stocking, the perfect size to hang over your fireplace ready to be filled with gifts. I used Aran (weight 4) yarn in 2 colours. I used ‘stylecraft special‘ A - silver 291m B - white 95m Supplies you will need - Crochet hook 6mm - Tapestry needle - Aran yarn - Stitch markers (optional) - Scissors This pattern is intermediate level with no sewing required. The pattern is written in USA terminology. You will need to know basic crochet stitches (sc, hdc, dc, tr). You'll also need to know how to work in Front/back loops and front/back posts. The pattern is 5 pages long and includes progress photos, gauge information and finished sizes.
This cute owl patten was meant to be an applique, but there is no reason you can't use it as an animal coaster for small glasses. You can also add a round or two to make in slightly bigger.
