Give the gift of OMG cuteness overload with this adorable baby owl onesie! With sweet little details like the ruffled tail feathers, a knit and purl textured belly, raglan shaping, and an owl face hood, this owl-fit is sure to keep baby warm and Mom smiling! If that wasn’t enough, this onesie comes with a precious matching stuffed Owl toy for baby to cuddle with too! This set is a lot of fun to knit with its one-piece construction (hence the name “Owl in One”!), and unique design details. The onesie is finished off with your special choice of buttons, with the option to use snap tape in its place. Videos are also included in this pattern to walk you through various steps to make sure knitting this owl-fit is as smooth as feathers.
This pattern includes instructions for both the Onesie and the Stuffed Owl 🙂
The onesie is knit using a 24” circular needle, while the eyes, ears, and toy are knit using double pointed needles.
