Strigidae Bubo: the CAL

Here we are again.  Another week, another section.  I hope you're enjoying yourself.  


This week you will be adding some "feathers" to your Bubo.  That may seem a bit intimidating, but in reality you will be working a series of triple crochet clusters (trcl).  Once the trcl round is complete you will then fill in the spaces between them with a background color.


Your Bubo is growing by 10 rounds this week.  Let's get started.

You have completed Section 3

As promised, it was an easy section.  You may have also noticed the section was a bit shorter than the first two.  As we go along I will try to keep the sections short enough to not be overwhelming, but long enough to give to last more than a few hours.  If you happen to be a fast stitcher you may find yourself waiting a few days for the next section.  Please take a few minutes to sew in all your ends while you wait.


Next week we will be adding more feather details that sit on top of the design a bit more than what you just completed.  They're fun rounds to work.


Please remember this pattern is my original design and is protected by copyright.  It is and will be available only on my website.
