    Owl Rug
    This gorgeous pineapple owl rug was found at http://www.crochelinhasagulhas.com it was originally apicture tutorial written in Portuguese. While easy to follow, I personally prefer a written pattern in standard American English notation.

    Body.
    With MC:
    Ch 10 join with sl st to form ring.
    1: ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 5, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc
    (there should be a small gap in the ring. this is ok and will be needed later for outer rounds)

    (don’t connect to previous row, this creates the ‘scalloping’ edge on the pineapple later)
    3: ch 3, 3 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, 3 dc in same ch 2 sp, 1 dc in ea dc (13 dc), 3 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, 3 dc in same ch 2 sp; turn.
    4: ch 3, 3 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, 3 dc in same ch 2 sp, ch 1, (dc, ch 1) x13, 3 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, 3 dc in same ch 2 sp; turn.

    17: ch 3, 3 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, 3 dc in same ch 2 sp, ch 5, 1 sc in ch 3 sp, ch 5, 3 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, 3 dc in same ch 2 sp; turn.
    18: ch 3, 3 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, 3 dc in same ch 2 sp, 3 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, 3 dc in ch 2 sp. Bind Off.

    With C2 start at bottom in starting ring.
    Rnd 1: ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2 3 dc, *3 dc, ch 2, 3dc in ch 3 sp that started each row* repeat *’d section around pineapple. (19 ‘fans’ total)
    Rnd 2: sl st in first 3 dc, ch 3, 2 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, 3 dc in same ch 2 sp, *3 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, 3 dc in same ch 2 sp, ch 1* repeat between *’s around. (19 ‘fans’ total)
    Rnd 3: sl st in first 3 dc, ch 3, 2 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, 3 dc in same ch 2 sp, *3 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, 3 dc in same ch 2 sp, 1 dc in ch 1 sp, ch 1, 1 dc in same ch 1 sp* repeat *’d section 17 more times, 3 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, 3 dc in same ch 2 sp. (all but the base of the pineapple should have ‘V’ sections between the ‘fans’); sl st in next 3 dc, bind off.
    Rnd 4: Starting in the middle of the 3rd ‘fan’ from the base (where you just ended the last row) we’ll start this row.
    Ch 2, 2dc, ch 3, 1 sc in middle of V, ch 1, 3 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, 3 dc in same ch 2 sp, *1 dc, 1 ch, 1 dc in center of V, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc in center of fan* repeat *’d section ending with ‘half fan’ in appropriate spot on other side.
    Rnd 5: just as rnd 4, only 3 dc in first and last half fans.
    Rnd 6: 3 sc, ch 2, 1 sc in ch section before fan, {ch 1 *1 dc, 1 picot* repeat 6 times, then 1 sc in V} repeat what’s in brackets around to last half fan, ch 2 from last sc, 3 sc in half fan. Bind off.
    Tidy up your ends. The hard part is done.

    Eyes (make 2)
    1: With Black: Make a Magic Circle. Ch 3, 14 dc around, sl st to join and bind off.
    2: With Eye Color: 2 dc in ea dc around. (30 dc total). join w sl st
    3: 2dc in one, 1 dc in one all the way around (45 dc total) join w sl st and bind off.
    4: With Black: 2 dc in, 1 dc in 1 x3 all the way around. sl st and bind off.

    With Black: Join the eyes with 10 sc. I think. There needs to be a small space between them while they’re solidly joined. It looks weird if they’re joined the normal way.
    With C2:
    dc around the eyes. I suggest 3 dc then 2 dc in 1 dc. follow the pictures, it’s hard to explain. I may revise this section for my own personal reasons.

    The Beak:
    So, in the picture she starts with 12 stitches at the ‘top’ of the eyes and somehow used dc’s to decrease and it looks solid. Even with my tight tension, I had holes all over the place. so I switched to sc and it worked a lot easier. Just wing it. so long as it’s a triangle and it’s solid it’s all good.
    The Brow:
    start in the crotch opposite the beak. sl st up the side then do recommended dcs, sl st to join (obviously)
    1: 3 sl st, 4 dc
    2: 3 sl st, 7 dc
    3:3 sl st, 15 dc

    The Ears:
    Count 14 dc from brow section, this is the outside stitch of the ear.
    the ear starts with 9 dc and decreases down by skipping each dc on the edges (9, 7, 5, 3, 1). Don’t really know how to explain this either.

    Attach that cute little face to that cute little body and you’re done. It’s a lot easier than it looks.
    But, the good news is, you have the pictures from the original blog to look at until I create my own to better explain this. but this works out in my head, so it should translate fairly well to yours.

    1. Good morning,

      I love this beautiful rug pattern. How many skeins of yarn do I need for this project? What size hook do I need?

      Thanks, Martie
