Whoo Me - owl in crewel wool
Whoo Me - owl in Madeira lanas

Whoo Me? – 5cm x 3½ cm / 4cm x 3cm

Inspired by the little pebble owls painted by a friend, this design is charted in two versions: one using Appletons crewel wool, and a slightly smaller one using the finer wool/acrylic blend Madeira Lana. It uses a variety of stitches including bullion knots, buttonhole stitch and fly stitch to create his distinctive feathers, eyes and striking orange toes.

Although both models are stitched in a brown/turquoise colour scheme, there's nothing to stop you from stitching your owl in your favourite colours. And if you would prefer to use stranded cotton or coton à broder instead of wool, why not give it a go?

See the two versions of Whoo Me mounted in cards in the Gallery.
