I am much more confident starting the project this time. At this point I had completed over a dozen crochet amigurumi projects. Wahoo!
I love my first crochet amigurumi so much that I had to create some more! Once again, I used a size F crochet hook and remnants of Wool of the Andes for these little ornaments. (Colors: Dove Heather, Mink Heather and Bittersweet Heather.) Each owl used about 6 g (12-13 yards) of yarn.
This time, when fastening off I did one slip stitch to finish off round 12. This is my only "modification"!
These are so addictive that they are hard to stop making! I had planned on making only 3, and well, you can see what happened.
Last time I had some trouble with getting the felt for the eyes to glue down properly. It took me a couple of times to get it to feel secure. This time, I used pins to keep the eye felt down while the glue was drying. It is a little creepy looking, but hopefully this will work better! The pins created some holes, but it was easy enough to fix by agitating the fabric with the end of a dpn.
