Picture of Crochet Spooky Owl Cozy

Hi friends!

This is my newest creation. Actually there is a story behind it. My nephew who is 5 is just fuzzy to have his milk.

I tried all my ways to inspire him with no great luck. Hence I decided to make his cup look fascinating.

That's how I came with an owl shaped crochet cozy with flying wings.

He loves it! Now he is asking me for a tiger cozy.

Miss 1 stitch and do 1 hdc in the next stitch. Chain 1 and do 1 hdc in the same stitch.

Step 12: Crocodile Stitch (1)

Chain 3 and do 4 hdc through the right leg of the V stitch. Do Chain 1.

How to do it??

Notice the "V" stitch below. We have to do hdc from under one leg of the V stitch. Yarn over and then take the crochet hook under right leg of the V stitch.

For more reference of how to do crocodile stitch please refer Step 10, 11 and 12.

Step 13: Crocodile Stitch (2)

Now you have completed 1 crocodile stitch. Do the same with the other "V" stitch.

Make another one in Pink yarn.

Step 14: Finish the Wing

Make a crocodile portion with just 1 crocodile stitch in blue yarn.

For that Ch 1.

Row 1: Chain 3 and 1 hdc in the same stitch. Now we get the first v stitch.

Repeat the crocodile stitch for 1 V- stitch as described before.

Now sew 2 blue and 1 pink portion together so that single crocodile stitch portion is below.

Make another wing in the same way.

Step 15: Sew

Now sew the eyes, beak, wing all on the body of the cozy.
