Soren the Barn Owl


Here's my beautiful barn owl! I love owls, and was so excited to make this little guy. I read the bookGuardians of Ga'hoole and then watched the movie, and then when I learned to crochet I couldn't help but make Soren and some of the other characters. This pattern could also be used to make a normal barn owl.

Assembly:
This is where it gets tricky.  Sew with thread or yarn. Before you finish the head/body, (putting the first st in the back) slst or embroidery (I used slst) the heart around his face using tan yarn.  Then embroidery beak just above bottom middle of heart.  Place black 8mm eyes in head a little above beak.  Embroidery tan yarn around eyes.  After all parts are made, sew wings onto sides of head/back/tail.  Sew top of head/back/tail onto head/body.  On top of head/back/tail, sew around to round 26, where tail starts.  Sew across above round 26.  Then sew legs on bottom of body.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.


Soren the character belongs to Kathryn Lasky, but the pattern belongs to me.
