Small Gifts

Two quick simple gifts for the stocking. Both of these two just a few hours to make and while the owl brooch was a little fiddly, it was quick to do.
This was a great way to use up some very small scraps of yarn that I had lying around and using needles a few sizes smaller than I otherwise would made nice tight little owls of different sizes. The pattern is from Ysolda, based on Needled original Owl jumper design. It's incredibly simple - just a couple of cables creating the folds for feet and eyes.
This crochet brooch comes with no pattern, it's just a couple of simple crochet stitches that I was experimenting with. I reckon it might look good on a cardigan or bag or something similar.
