  17. Hi! I was wondering about how big is the owl supposed to be? I’m making mine right now and it seems larger than what it should be. Let me know as soon slash possible, thanks!:)

  18. I saw this cute little owl and thought I’d try it out. Now I’d never crocheted before but the pattern was so easy I had a blast learning. However I decided to use tshirt material and a size 10 hook so mine turned out alot bigger. 8″ x 5″ to be exact. Thanks for the free pattern!
