Hi, my name is Sarah and I blog at Repeat Crafter Me. I have a passion for crafting and crocheting and when I’m not chasing my two boys around, I spend my time blogging about kid crafts, DIY projects, crochet patterns and my attempts at cooking with the help of my Crock Pot. I love sharing my free crochet patterns with you, so stop by and say hi and show me what you’ve created!
 
I was so excited when Kara told me she was hosting a Granny Square Month on her blog. Petals to Picots has always been one of my favorite crochet blogs. I always find wonderful patterns and project ideas on her site and lots of inspiration at her I Fridays Link Party. I have been thinking about making an owl granny square for some time and when I couldn’t find a pattern to follow, I decided to create my own! Kara has graciously agreed to let me debut this pattern on her blog in honor of Granny Month. Check back later this month on my blog Repeat Crafter Me to see how I used my owl granny squares!

Owl Granny Square Pattern

 
Materials:
– Vanna’s Choice Yarn
– Size G-6 (4.25 mm) Crochet Hook
– Tapestry need
– Small Black buttons for eyes
 
Abbreviations:
SC = Single Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
TC = Triple Crochet
Click here for how to make a Magic Ring.

Start by making your owl. This pattern would also make a great appliqué!

 

Magic Ring, Chain 1, 8 HDC in magic ring, join to first HDC, chain 1

Round 2: 2 HDC in each around, join to first HDC, change color  (16 HDC)

Round 3: Chain 2, 2 DC in each around, join to first DC, chain 1 (32 DC)

Round 4: HDC, in next stitch: DC – TC – DC, SC in next 5, in next stitch: DC – TC – DC, HDC in next, slip stitch to join.

fasten off, weave in ends.

Turn owl over. You are going to be attaching a series of chain 3’s where the brown DC’s join the pink (see picture). It’s best to start to the right of the ear. Be sure to work clockwise (see photo). To start, draw your hook under the bottom of the DC, chain 3. Now skip every other DC. So your pattern should look like this:

 SC and chain 3, skip one, SC and chain 3, skip one, SC and chain 3, all the way around. In the end you will end up with 8 places where you have connected with SC’s and 8 chain 3 spaces. slip stitch to join to the bottom of the first chain 3.

 

Now working inside your chain 3 spaces…

Chain 3 – 2 DC – Chain 1 – 3 DC all in same space, Chain 1, 3 DC in next space, Chain 1, *3 DC – Chain 1 – 3 DC all in same space, Chain 1, 3 DC in next space, Chain 1, *Around, slip stitch to join to the top of the first chain 3, fasten off.

 

With new color and starting in corner space…

Chain 3 – 2 DC – Chain 1 – 3 DC all in same space, Chain 1, 3 DC in next space, Chain 1, 3 DC in next space, *3 DC – Chain 1 – 3 DC all in same space, Chain 1, 3 DC in next space, Chain 1, 3 DC in next space, *around, slip stitch to join to the top of the first chain 3, fasten off.

 

With new color and starting in corner space…

Chain 3 – 2 DC – Chain 1 – 3 DC all in same space, Chain 1, 3 DC in next space, Chain 1, 3 DC in next space, Chain 1, 3 DC in next space,* 3 DC in next space – Chain 1 – 3 DC all in same space, Chain 1, 3 DC in next space, Chain 1, 3 DC in next space, Chain 1, 3 DC in next space, *Around, slip stitch to join to the top of the first chain 3, fasten off, weave in all ends.

 This is what the backside of your granny square should look like:

Now you can add the embellishments to the owl.

 

Eyes:

Magic Ring, Chain 1, 8HDC in magic ring, join to first HDC, fasten off leaving a long tail to sew on.

Sew on no larger than 1/2″ black buttons in the middle for eyes.

 

Beak and Feet:

Sew on yellow yarn with tapestry needle. Loop the yarn through 3 times to make both the feet and beak.

    It’s so cute

  21. christine September 6, 2012 at 4:47 pm #

    Hi I was wondering if someone could help clarify round 4??
    All of those stiches go in the (1) stich after the first HDC? Or every other stitch??
    Thanks so much– sorry ahead of time if a dumb question 🙂

  22. mommy2pipnemm September 7, 2012 at 2:12 am #

    @ Christine I had the same question but went back & reread… It’s the dc tc dc in one stitch, then sc in the next five stitches then dc tc dc in the last stitch

    • Repeat Crafter Me September 7, 2012 at 5:07 pm #

      Yes that is correct!! DC, TC, DC all in one stitch NOT every other stitch. Sorry for the confusion.

    Thank you so much for this tutorial… 🙂

    Hello!
    I wonder if there’s an opportunity for me to translate this wonderful pattern to Swedish and borrow images? Of course I link to your blog where the original pattern is, and do you have anything else to say about the pattern, I write naturally with it.

    You can reach me at; http://saannisdesign.blogg.se/

    Thanks in advance

    Please tell me how much color of each yarn I need? I didn’t see this listed anyplace.

  28. Dordors world January 27, 2013 at 10:49 pm #

    I have just completed one. It didn’t turn out the same because I managed to get the number of rows(?) wrong however I still am really pleased because I’ve only been crocheting for two weeks . The owl is wonky too but looks adorable . Thankyou for this tutorial xxx

    Just LOVE this owl! I took the owl part of the pattern and made them in 3 sizes for magnet toppers, and key chains add-ons on a fob for Christmas for all my female family and friends! They were very well received… And then their friends wanted some! Lol I can make that owl in my sleep now ..Ha! My last adaption was a precious baby toy. I made it 3 dementional and added short interwoven rings above head for baby to grab ahold of, and sewed inside jingle bells for added charm!
    Thank you so much for sharing this adorable pattern!!!

    • Kara October 13, 2014 at 7:50 pm #

  34. Denise June 12, 2015 at 9:37 am #

    I would love to make a blanket for my grandchild. The baby is due in December. Please consider making a video. That’s the only way I can learn.

    • Kara June 15, 2015 at 10:12 am #

      I’m sorry … I don’t think there is a video as of yet 🙂

  35. Victoria July 12, 2015 at 1:43 am #

    Hey I love this pattern but not sure on how to make it because I can’t understand the instructions and just starting to learn so are the any ways on how to do the stitches and an easier way to make this.
