Mini owl applique

Owls are fun and adorable. They are nice addition to any hats, bags, garments or even keyrings. They are fast to make and can use any scrap yarn.

This crocheted owl measures just 3 cm/1.25 in and is made with 3mm crochet hook.

Yarn: Does not matter for this project. I used 100% cotton from Drops.
Hook size: 3mm (C or D) (hook size conversion chart). You may use any yarn and suitable hook. 
Stitches used: sc, mc
Finished size: 3cm/1.25in
Colors used: yellow, green, brown, salmon (very small amount for beak only, any red will be ok too).

Note: You will need something for eyes - small buttons, amigurumi eyes or some eyes for crafting.
I have used eyes for crafting with glue at the back.

mc - magic circle
sc - single crochet
ss - slip stitch
hdc - half double crochet

Start with yellow. In mc sc 6, end with ss.

Join green and ch 1, sc in same st, 2 sc in each of the next st, end with ss in ch 1 (12 st).

Join brown and ch 1, sc in same st, *sc in next st, 2 sc in next st*, repeat * - * till the end of the round.
Continue with brown - ch 3 and ss in the next st, ss in the next 2 st, ch 3, ss in the next st. Ears are done. Cut the yarn.

Skip one st from the last worked stitch and join yellow, work one ss, then sc in next st, one hdc in next st. One wing is made. Now make the second one the same way on the opposite side.

With small amount of yellow and tapestry needle make the legs.
Then put the eyes (or sew them if you use buttons) and sew beak below with tapestry needle.

The picture below shows how to make the beak with the needle.
