Fritz the owl

Meet Fritz
 Fritz is the first from my busy week writing patterns and making samples. I'm gonna have a bash at getting some patterns into crochet magazines :)
With owls being really popular at the mo I thought I'd try making a bigger one. This guy was inspired by one of the laser wooden buttons we have at work. They are from a company called button it  and they make such wonderful fun designs they'd all make cool toys.
 He quite a bit bigger than other amigurumis I've made but it makes him just the right size for a cuddle.
I really like using multicoloured yarn when making owls as it means everyone you make is different and has its own personality. This one can be made with any DK weight yarn and it doesn't take a lot so he'll be great to use up yarn  left over from other projects.

The pattern will be coming soon to my etsy shop so watch this space.

I'm linking in with handmade monday go have a look at all the other lovely craft blogs
