Autumn is in full swing, and we want to add an owl to it. Let’s do that with the new Caron x Pantone …
We think very highly of Pantone™, who provides an “universal language of color”. See for example our project, the woven lace basket in our “Pantone and Lace” blog, earlier this year.
It seemed impossible to not try the new Yanrspirations™ “Caron® x Pantone™” on the TURTLE looms when it was released as a Michaels exclusive a few months ago!
Finding a project was a delightful challenge, and in the end a popular, traditional owl quilt seemed to have just the right properties to translate well into the Caron x Pantone color combinations.
We used the TinyTURTLE™ loom. You will get about a dozen hexagons for each color, which makes it a good amount of hexagons to play with for many designs.
We used “Fuchsia Foliage” for the project, and “Coconut Cream” for the background. The pattern can be used for any of the other color combinations as well, here is a suggestion for a “winter owl” in “Purple Pops”.
The owl is “framed” by an irregular border to add a playful character, optionally finished with one row of single crochet. With a size 22″ x 22″ this makes a great newborn blanket or car seat cover, or a comfort blanket for a toddler. It could also be a pretty autumn wall hanging, throw pillow, or just add more hexagons to make it anything you want. For a real challenge, make six owls, maybe even in different color combinations, and turn them into a bed spread!

Happy Fall, Y’All, and happy weaving!
