Owl Teacosy pattern in crochet wanted

Threaded View

I'm new here, and am here in desperate need of help.  Our family had a
teacosy
that was crocheted in the shape of an owl, he had two big
crocheted circles for
eyes, and a very textured body.  To cut a long
and painful story short, the cosy
has been badly damaged, my parents
are devastated as it was made by my
great-grandmother towards the end
of her life.  I know I can't replace it
exactly, but I'd like to make a
replacement, but can't find a pattern.  If
anyone could supply me with
one, I'd be very grateful indeed.

Re: Owl Teacosy pattern in crochet wanted

Hi KiwiDeb & Welcome to the group!

I found a picture on this blog that matches your description.

http://j9campcalcium.blogspot.com/2005/08/still-being-spoiltnow-in-perth.html

Do you think you could make up a pattern using this picture as a guide?
 It's about the only thing I could find at a quick glance.  The body
looks like some kind of shell stitch that is decreased around the head,
and the eyes  look like they are several rows of double crochet in the
round.  I can't see the back, but maybe you could figure it out.

Good luck,  

Hesira

I have had the pattern for that tea cosy. I made it about 17 years ago
in a grey mingled mohair. I have got some eyes done somewhere but never
got around to making the body a second time..
Unfortunately I cannot find the pattern because I had a massive clear
out last year to re-organise my craft room.
However the friend who taught me to crochet gave me the pattern and she
may still have it.
I will email her and see if she does have it and will get it. It was
just on one page of A4.

Do you still have the damaged owl tea cosy?  Maybe you can follow it like a

The Islandblogging group of blogs have a tea-cosy which travels around
Orkney & Shetland from time to time. Bloggers receive the tea-cosy and
photograph it in various locations.

One of its recent visits was to Skara Brae, a Neolothic village in
Orkney. <http://stromnessdragon.islandblogging.co.uk/2009/04/09/cat-cosy
