Owl Babies Pattern!

Edited to Add on May 16th: The Knitting Pipeline Podcast is having an Owl Babies pattern giveaway! Be sure to listen to her owl-themed podcast, too, it's so good. Click here to enter! Only open until May 19th. She is also giving away a copy of my Hoot Hat pattern.
Hi Knitters,
I am so excited to add Owl Babies to my Ravelry Pattern Store. At this point I am only offering Owl Babies through my Ravelry Pattern Store because my Shop Susan B. Anderson pattern shop is full! You don't have to be a member of Ravelry to purchase patterns on Ravelry so that is no problem.

Click here to go to my Ravelry Pattern Store.

Click here to go to the pattern page for more information and the link to purchase the downloadable pdf pattern.
The Owl Babies stand at about 3 1/2 inches tall and about 2 1/2 inches wide. You start of the bottom and knit the entire owl in one piece including the wings. There are a few fun techniques thrown in that make for a quick twisty knit. The feet are knit up and stitched to the bottom. It is a fast and fun and interesting knit! I released the pattern and literally the next day a couple of finished Owl Babies were already posted on Ravelry. They look terrific!
The bright juicy colors are Spud & Chloƫ Sweater. This Owl Baby is made in the colorway Grass and the wings and feet are made in the colorway, Popsicle. My husband saw the green and started calling it Kiwi Owl. I thought that was cute for the green owl but the name needed to be a little more general.
I love the set together. You need more than one.
Aren't they funny all lined up?
I really love these little guys. They are just funny. It's a perfect stash buster project for left overs, Use up your worsted weight yarn knit at a tighter than usual gauge.

These are sooooo cute! I can envision a series of red and white Owl Babies all strung together for a fun holiday garland. My goal is to have an owl themed tree this year!
