Owl Free Chart, Suitable For Various Types of Needlecrafts

Designed by Sandi Marshall

This chart is free for your own personal use only (allowing for not-for-profit, noncommercial uses of my design and finished items which include my owl design within the item).

To make a crocheted background to cross-stitch the design on, starting chain is 61 chains for single crochet or 60 chains for afghan stitch. Work this background for 60 rows.

Working the Chart in Filet Crochet
For a 4 dc mesh, beginning chain is 181, plus chain 3, (which will count as first dc of first row), for a total starting chain of 184 chains. Begin by working a double crochet in the 5th chain from the hook. Follow chart for placement of solid mesh and open mesh for each row. For a refresher on how to do open and solid mesh, see Basics link below.

Chart is worked starting at the bottom right; work first row right to left. Second row is worked left to right. Continue alternating row directions in this same manner, following chart.
