Strigidae Bubo: the CAL

Welcome back!  Here we are, four weeks in already.  Still a ways to go, but Bubo is taking shape.  

This week we will be adding more feathers.  These are made with a crocodile ish stitch.  For this design I inverted the "scales" for the feather effect.  


This is a short section.  Bubo grows by 8 rounds this week, but each round is now taking more time to complete.

Section 4

Round 28 color 1

Join with a standing dc in any st, dc in same st.  *Dc in next 8 sts, 2dc in next st* 22 times, omitting last 2 sts.  Join to the first st with a slst.  FO.

220 dc


Round 29 color 8

Join with a standing BPhdc around any st, BPhdc around same st.  *BPhdc around next 10 sts, 2BPhdc next st* 20 times, omitting last 2 sts.  Join to the first st with a slst.  DO NOT FO.

Round 30

Round 31 color 3

**Hint**

Rounds 31 and 33 are worked very similar to the crocodile stitch.  All dc are worked either up or down the posts of the 2 dc pairs from the previous rounds.  You may find it helpful to turn your work sideways to the left or right for each set of 6dc.

Join with a standing dc sideways on the post of the first of any 2dc, 5dc up same post.  6Dc down the post of the second dc of R30.

*Slst into the st of R29 the single dc of R30 is worked into.  6Dc up the post of the next dc of R30, 6dc down the post of the second dc of R30* 40 times, omitting last 12dc.  Join to the first st with a slst.  FO.

You have completed section 4

You have another section under your belt.  Next week we will work the final section of the round shape.  


Take a moment this week to sew in all your ends, and snap a few pictures of your Bubo in progress.  I love seeing everyone's work.
