FO Fail: Owl Apple Cozy

I tried to make this adorable apple cozy, but it was a big fail.  My owl looks cute, but it is way too small to fit an apple inside.  Sad!  The pattern didn't list a gauge, so that was her bad.  But, also, I knew fairly early into the project that it looked a little small and I never stopped and put a test apple inside, so it was my bad too.  Anyway, here is my cute owl that will cozy up nothing:



yarn details

scraps of white and black acrylic yarn for the eyes

project details
pattern: Owl Apple Cozy by Kara Gunza, available for free here
hook: H (5.0mm)
gauge: apprx 5 rounds= 2'' diameter circle (this was way too small)

notes:
  • I couldn't get the eye brows to look anything but angry, so I took them off
  • To orient button loop on other side for second wing: Ch 4, 1 sc in each of next 7 sts, 2sc in next st, 1 sc each of next 7 sts, 2 sc in last stitch, join - 18 sts and button loop.
