Many needlewomen who are fond of knitting say with confidence that there are never too many hats. Now, each family member has his own hat, knitted with a unique attractive pattern. It seems that you can start working on another masterpiece, for example, a sweater. But an unusual new ornament, an original scheme or an attractive model is encountered, immediately hands reach out to repeat and improve what they saw.
Today, the Owl pattern is especially popular. Knitting it with knitting needles is quite simple. In addition, even novice craftswomen can cope with this task. As a result, soon you can please your loved ones with a new accessory.
The Owl pattern is quite popular. It is used in the manufacture of hats, scarves, mittens, mittens, sweaters, etc. The pattern for knitting an owl with knitting needles is simple and understandable. It is enough to describe and decipher the main symbols.
What needs to be prepared?
First of all, you should decide on the yarn and tool. For knitting winter scarves, hats and mittens, you should choose high-quality yarn.It is better to give preference to a thick half-woolen or woolen thread. If you have a suitable yarn, but it is thin, you should simply knit the product in a few threads. In addition, you can think about the gradient - a smooth transition from one color to another. Such models are now very popular.
You can also knit a hat or mittens with the Owl pattern using the intarsia method. In this case, the main canvas will be one color, and the owl will be another. Such models also look impressive.
For knitting both hats and mittens, prepare 5 stocking needles. You should also prepare one additional or special knitting needle, on which loops will be removed while knitting the pattern.
For work, you should also prepare a centimeter tape, a ruler, markers (for lack of it, you can use pins), a thick needle for stitching. You should also pick up decorative elements (beads, rhinestones, buttons, artificial eyes for toys), which will then decorate the finished owl.
The owl knitting pattern on the hat should also be prepared.
Now you can start measuring. For each product, you need to carry out your own. For example, the main indicator for calculating a future hat is the circumference of the head, for mittens - the circumference of the wrist. Consider, for example, knitting a hat for a head circumference of 46 cm. This is a children's size. If this size does not suit you, you should take your measurements and calculate the number of loops fordefined circle.
Remember, knitting a sample is a mandatory procedure, even if the size in the description matches yours. After all, you can use other threads, a different number of knitting needles, and each needlewoman has her own knitting density. Since the main fabric of the product will be made with the front surface, the sample should be knitted with just such a pattern. The sample parameters are 10 x 5 cm. Now, with a flat ruler, we measure the shred horizontally and vertically. By these numbers you can calculate how many loops and rows in 1 cm.
At this stage, calculate how many loops should be cast on the knitting needles and how many rows of the product should be knitted.
For mittens, please measure your wrist circumference and arm length.
Now we are preparing a pattern for knitting an owl with knitting needles. It will help both beginners and experienced needlewomen.
For a head circumference of 46 cm, dial 82 loops. Remember that you must calculate this indicator yourself. We distribute these loops on 4 knitting needles, close the knitting in a circle.
The pattern for knitting an owl with knitting needles consists of 29 rows. The total number of rows of the cap may vary depending on the size. If you want to knit a larger hat, then you should simply knit the required height with the selected pattern on top and bottom of the owl. You can use garter stitch, stockinette stitch or pearl pattern.

If you want to knit a small children's hat, then the whole pattern will easily fit on the central part of the headdress. The back of the hat is most often knitted in stockinette stitch.
Often needlewomen make a kit. For example, it is quite simple to knit mittens with knitting needles. The scheme and description of the owl are the same as for the cap.
Decorative elements: tassels and ears, eyes
Today hats with ears are especially popular. Therefore, many needlewomen are interested in how to knit these elements correctly. For beginners, it is better to leave everything as it is. After all, we knit an almost square product, and when stitched from above, the sharp corners look the same as the ears. This problem resolves itself.
To emphasize that these corners are really the ears of an owl, you should highlight them. To do this, you can use brushes that will look spectacular on a headdress. We prepare the yarn from which the product was knitted, and cut the threads about 10 cm long. The volume of these decorative elements also depends on the number of threads. If you want fluffy tassels, use more yarn.
Fold the cut threads in half and carefully tie them in the central part. Align the tips and sew to the corners of the cap.
Selecteyes with buttons, beads or other decorative elements.
