  1. I hope you can help as I’ve made 3 wings with your instructions and I’m stuck on this row:
    Row 4: 1sc in the next st, (3sc in the st, 1sc in next five sts) times 2, 3sc in the st, 1sc in next four sts. Total 30sts

    I can only get 24 stitches. It makes the wing comes out lop-sided.

    I want to make this work with the wings since I’ve already got the body completed, stuffed and slip stitched close.

    Thanks in advance for your help!!

  3. I’m just getting back into crocheting and would like to make some quick projects for our church’s annual craft fair. I was asked to find patterns for small animal toys and your little owl is perfect! May I use your pattern to make some for the sale? Thank you for the work you’ve put into sharing your creativity!
