Owl Teacosy pattern in crochet wanted

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.

Hi KiwiDeb & Welcome to the group!
I found a picture on this blog that matches your description.

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 bodylooks 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 theround. I can't see the back, but maybe you could figure it out. Good luck,

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. Shirley

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.
