Owl Amigurumi keychain – free pattern

Hoot! hoot!

There are countless patterns for cute owls on the internet and I knew I have to have my own. And any resemblance to other owls is purely coincidental and I cant be held responsible. :p

The levitating owl

Owl body:

Round 1: Magic circle, sc 6 times. Without joining start the next round and the following.
Round 2: 2sc in each sc around. (12)
Round 3: [sc in the sc, 2sc in the next sc] * 6 times. (18)
Round 4: [sc in the next 2sc, 2sc in the next sc] * 6 times. (24)
Round 5: sc around. (24)
:
Round 12: sc around. (24)
Stuff the owl, and hold it like a sack and sew the ends. If you’ve used yellow by now the owl may look like a weird minion.

Owl’s wings:

Round 1: Magic circle, dc 12 times into the magic circle. (12)
Round 2: [sc in the sc, 2sc in the next sc] * 6 times. (18)

Make two of these, slightly tug at opposite side of each wing and make it appear elongated. Now sew the top part of the wing onto the body.

Eyes:

Using white coloured yarn,
Round 1: Magic circle, sc 6 times. Without joining start the next round and the following.
Round 2: 2sc in each sc around. (12)

Make two of these and sew it to the body. Make french knots for eyeballs. Embroider the beak using satin stitch.

While sewing the head, I’ve added a loop for the key ring so my darling niece could use it as keychain.

Crochet/macrame chest – using paracord

Hello here! It’s been a long time, a good long vacation has done me good and I’m excited about this blog post. I’ve learnt a bit of macrame as you can see from this cute little chest.

Fotor_143502971436732

Materials needed:

  • Paracord dark blue, light blue, white
  • Crochet hook : 6.5mm

I’m sure you can make the basket by yourself if you know how to crochet. The tricky part is its lid and some instructions might do you good.

Cut the paracord to different lengths:

  • a ) 1 dark blue paracord : 30 cms
  • b) 6 dark blue paracords : 60 cms each
  • c) 4 dark blue paracords : 250 cms each
  • d) 6 light blue paracords : 50 cms each
  • e) 6 white cord : 40 cms each

Use the 1 dark blue cord (30 cms)[a] as the base thread. Make a larks head knot using 1 of the 6 dark blue cord (60 cms)[b] to the base thread. Then make a larks head knot(twice) using 1 of the 4 dark blue cord (250 cms)[c] onto the left hand side tail of the previous cord. Repeat the same for the remaining 3 dark blue cord as shown in the images below.

Now make similar knots on these horizontal threads using the light blue and white paracords.

Similarly make other petals, and trim and seal the excess using fire or super glue. It gets quite tricky with this part. You may notice parallel lines in between the petals, if you wish you may fill them or leave it as such. I’ve started to crochet around the last line working around the flower using a white paracord.IMG_20150506_132705

Round 1: 7sc, ch1 around the flower
Round 2: Using the blue cord, sc around the previous round.

Teddy Amigurumi Key-chain- #womensday

Hello teddy girl!

I made this little amigurumi teddy key chain in a day and I can’t believe how cute it turned out to be, considering the amount of time it took, making it. A friend of mine had recently got through her post graduation with  great success and I couldn’t think of a better gift for her. Although, it’s not my own pattern, I loved how easy it was to follow.
