okay, so you pay up front $2, but when you submit your feedback within a week, i'll give you that $2 back and send you the revised pattern if there are any revisions. here is the link<br><a href="http://hyenacart.com/PracticalPrincessBoutique/index.php?p=23038" target="_blank">http://hyenacart.com/PracticalPrince...ex.php?p=23038</a><br><br>

I just ordered--my kids saw it and adored it. They insisted I make one for them. They have been studying birds all year so it will be fun!

thanks ladies! I hadn't planned to make a pattern but then i figured i'd better write down what i did and then it became an obsession to perfect him. I'm so sick of knitting owls that it's not even funny. Good thing my entire family likes owls <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> He is awfully cute though and really simple. When i made the pattern, i couldn't find a simple knitted owl pattern anywhere. now it looks like there's a new one at etsy.com but he looks a little more involved. Way way cute though.<br><br>
They all end up with such different personalities and i love naming them. i can give them names i always wanted to use but won't have enough babies for <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
i haven't tried knitting him in babyb yarn yet.. wouldn't a teeeeeny tiny own be sweet?

I bought the pattern and haven't looked at if very closely, but I think it's worked in the round.

It's a cute pattern. Mine's here (I tested for Amber): <a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v158/amey311/knitting/100_4928.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...g/100_4928.jpg</a> - those are yellow buttons and we used sharpie to fill in the centers.<br><br>

Darcy, any pattern that is written "in the round" or to be worked on circulars or double point is a magic loop pattern.. you simply use an extra long circular needle instead of the circs or double points.. you work it exactly the same way though. so a pattern doesn't need to be written specifically for magic loop. the owl pattern is no exception. you can use either a long circ to do magic loop, two circs, or on double point needles.. no matter which you choose, the pattern directions don't change. hope that helps!<br><br>
