How I did it //
I decided that I did not want to pay for the ShiFio's Pattern and figured I could probably just wing it. However, I ended up finding a similar free pattern by Rebecca Sager from "Creative Crochet by Becky". (FREE Pattern) I used her pattern for the body and nose portion and improvised for the other appliques (eyes, feathers & wings). The hat was a combo of Rebecca's pattern and my own rib stitching.
Body // Free pattern by Rebecca Sager from Creative Crochet by Becky (FREE Pattern). Ribbon was my own addition.
Eyes // Essentially, I made a normal circle (switching between sc & dc to make the right size) and used Firefly Crochet to come up with the 'sleeping eyes'.'s "Sleepy Owl Sleeping Mask" from
Nose // Rebecca Sager's nose from her free pattern.
Feathers //| Tamara Kelly's Croccodile Stitch Video Tutorial from Moogly.
Wings //| Free pattern by Rachael Whitton Stegmoyer on Ravelry.
Hat // Start with a rib stitch (size is your choice, I used a chain of 5 with hdc stitches). Mine is about 14 inches long. I flipped it, then sc across. Turn, chain 2 and shell stitch across (5dc, sk 2, sc, sk 2, 5dc, sk 2, etc.) and in the following rows till you get your preferred size. Then I sc the top and sides together and fastened off. I slip knotted some strands of yarn to the points and added ribbon for the final touch.
