This is a kit for knitting my Tiny Barn Owl Decoration, finished height about 8cm. 


You knit the owl in lovely Shetland Spindift wool in the round, in stranded colourwork, as a simple tube and knit on little wings. There is some simple shaping in the small amount of sewing up. You wet felt the owl into a sweet miniature (instructions given) and mould it into to shape while drying. Eyes, beak and feet are embroidered on- I give instructions for a fool proof method for embroidering neat, round eyes.


This kit includes enough materials to make one tiny owl decoration:

❋ Printed pattern

❋ Jamieson’s 100% Shetland wool yarn (5.5g in   

   ‘Scotch Broom’ and 2.8g in ‘Natural White’)

❋ 70cm double stranded black embroidery cotton

❋ 25cm single stranded white embroidery cotton

❋ 4.2g carded lambswool stuffing

❋ 25cm bakers twine (for a hanging loop)

❋ French bulb stitch marker

❋ Bulldog clip (for shaping the tail while drying)


Just add:

❋ 3.25mm double pointed needles

❋ Wool needle/tapestry needle


The bulldog clip and stitch marker are reusable and the remaining materials and packaging are all based on natural materials and recyclable and/or biodegradable.  


Please note that this is a kit and not  finished owl. The glass display dome is not included.
