Sova Amigurumi, Keychain, Bag Accessory for Kids & Adult

Sova01_1000

 

Hi my dears,

If you are looking for last minute Valentine day gift idea, I have a “last minute” written pattern for you, which if FREE for limited time! I definitely overdone myself to design something new, write a pattern, draw diagrams, take pictures, tested the pattern in only 3 days. So let me introduce…

 

Sova

Sova means owl in Russian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech and a bunch of other languages. It’s been my favorite bird since I can remember.
This pattern is versatile. Made with sport weight yarn, these lovebirds can be used as home decor (they are settled on my desk) or as a bag accessory. Crocheted with fine or thread weight yarn they will make a cute keychain. Crocheted with  worsted or bulky yarn they will make a pillow or a toy – just change the eye-buttons to crocheted eyes.

In the other news, after my latest Owleta mini collection, I received several emails if here are some owl designs for boys… So, please welcome Owliver, a very first owl design for boys (more to come in March):

Sova03_1000

 

And it means that Sova is planned as growing time to time collection for Owleta and Owliver designs.

Oh, and below is a very first designed sova (not included in the pattern):
