It's a Hoot!

Which is the name of the pattern for this whimsical little basket/container....

I'ts a Hoot Owl Container


This is a free Red Heart pattern you can find HERE. I had this mauve yarn sitting around...mill ends from one of the craft stores. Instead of making a small, crocheted circle for the pupil of the eye, I bought acrylic jewels and glued them in instead. I actually made this larger than the pattern said, adding 3 more rows to the base. It uses a double strand of yarn throughout and a K hook. This will be a gift for my DD, probably for Christmas. 

Bought more yarn today for afghans...one for Lillith for Christmas. And some cotton yarn for bathroom/spa sets for gifts. Gotta get started soon. 

Crochet, Away!
