Okay, Ladies,

Thanks for being so patient.

Now, the length is sort of important. The finished product is 3 3/4" long and you might not want it longer than that. I can't say anymore without giving it away. So, if after row 1, your row is longer than that, use less stitches, as long as you start with an EVEN amount of chains. I found chain 12 worked for me. Now this means, row 1 should have an ODD amount of single crochets.

To start:



Chain 14
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across, turn - 13 sc
Row 2: (right side) Chain 3 (counts as first dc), skip first stitch, dc in next stitch and each stitch across, turn - 13 dc
Row 3: chain 1, slip stitch in first dc, *dc in next dc, slip stitch in next dc. Repeat from * work last slip stitch in top of ch-3, turn. - 13 stitches (7 slip stitches, and 6 dc)

Rows 4-19: Repeat Rows 2 and 3

Put this to the side for now. Don't finish off; we'll be going back to it in a couple of days.
With white (Make 2)
ch 4; 11 dc in 3rd ch from hook; join with a slip st to
top of ch-3. Fasten off.

One small button will be going in the middle of each, so make sure you pull the middle a little tight.


Now you use your yellow/gold colour.

With yellow ch 6; dc in 3rd ch from hook, hdc in next ch, sc in
next ch, slip st in last ch. Fasten off.


This might sound a little weird, but I'll explain it to anyone who doesn't quite understand.

All right, Ladies, here it is!

PLEASE READ ALL DIRECTIONS BEFORE STARTING!

First of all, find a mug! Haha! I kept it a mystery (sort of) I used my shortest mug, so you should be okay.

Repeat Rows 2 & 3 until it goes almost all the way around. (You don't want it too tight or too loose.)

Last row: Ch 3, skip first st, dc in next st and each st across, ch 10, slip st in last dc for button loop. Fasten off. (Make sure the ch 10 works with your button; you might need to make the chain longer or shorter.)

Finishing
Sew Beak and Eyes in place. Sew button to beginning edge to correspond to button loop. Sew first 3 sts of Row 24 to corresponding 3 sts of beginning ch. Weave in ends.

Sewing the ends together is up to you. If your mug has a low handle, then you might want to use two buttons to fasten it. Just add an extra chain ten to where you want another button.

I'm including the link, so you can see what it looks like.

http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/owl-mug-wrap

I must make a confession. I was looking at a whole bunch of patterns and gave the wrong hook size and I didn't realize that until now, so I do apologize. All I know was I wasn't getting the right guage/size which is why I suggested changing your amount of chains.

Thanks so much for participating! Sorry it finished so quickly.

WOW, I ended with a length of precisely 3 3/4 and an odd number of 13. That was surprising! I'm using a G 6 hook. I can't remember which one you said to use. I only have small buttons... no black. I have a feeling this could end up being a cell phone pouch.

I'm not saying what it is until the end. Keep guessing. Right answer gets a zipper pull from Patricia.

As for the big buttons, you can get away with one button. But I will give some options at the end

Some might be fine if it's a little bigger, but for me, I had to reduce it a bit. But as long as you end up with an ODD number of siingle crochets at the end of row 1, you're good.

Ummm... how important is the gauge? giggles... I am using regular yarn and I double counted all my stitches because Troy kept talking and made me loose count. Anyhow, I measure in at 3 1/4" wide.

Sierra, try skipping a stitch somewhere.

Guage doesn't matter too much, Dawn. But if you want, just add a couple more stitches. It's better to be a little too short than too big.

OK, got it done, not sure if I have 13 stitches though, it was hard to count, but I came out even. In my head I had to say slip stitch, double crochet, slip stitch, double crochet. LOL!

doh! I had to look up a slip stitch, LOL!!! I hope I got 13 stitches because I was saying slip, double, slip and not counting but did end on a slip stitch.
This is going to make a great litttle purse to hold my debit card and business cards Wink Just guessing as we go.

As long as you started and ended with a slip stitch, you're probably fine.

I'll post the next part tomorrow. I've had one almost guess, but I won't say who or when it was posted.

Okay, Sierra, you be alternating slip stitch, DC, slip st, DC, like that. If you have been alternating and have two slip stitches at the end, just skip one stitch and slip stitch and the very end.

It is a very forgiving pattern, so if you make a mistake, it's no big deal.

Isn't it so cool looking?

If no one minds, we're going to put that part aside for a while. Don't finish off or cut.

I want to keep the mystery going for a while longer, so we're going to work on another section next.

Umm, ok, but will I still need the same color yarn as I will need to find the other end.

Nope. Next, we'll be working with the white. You might have to adjust the size of what you just did, and you can't do that without knowing what it is, so I want to do the other pieces, then go back to that.

Does that make sense?

Since I'm using pink as my main color can I use white and maybe lavender instead of the yellow? Or will that just ruin the whole thing?

Yours can be cutesy! The pattern is nature inspired, but I specifically chose something that can work in any colour. My main colour is purple vereigated. Yellow will work best, but you can really use anything. White would also work for the yellow. I think by the time we get to that part, you will know what it is.

ok, just for clarification.... I can switch the color of white to what I want.. however it is nature inspired so i may wish to keep the yellow (must be the center of a flower... maybe??) My pink is not a good match for white so I want to use a hot pink which will look awesome with the pale yellow I picked out. Did anyone follow that train of thought? LOL!

Honestly, I never thought about using something other than white. I would probably use something a little paler.

Not to give too much away, you'll be making two of the white and they will be sewn onto the main piece you've been working on.

CTC, do you have orange or cream instead of yellow?

Ok, let me ask this... The way I am thinking for the overall end project is that I want this 'white' part to POP so to speak. In which case I want the hot pink. If it should BLEND with the 'main' piece for lack of a better what to describe it... then I want white. So do I need to blend or pop?
I must apologize if I am being difficult. I just tend to ask a ton of questions all the time. I honestly do not been to be difficult.

You will want it to pop, I think. But the white is so small and quick to do, that if you don't like the colour when you know what it is, it won't take too much to change it.

You also don't even need to do the embellishments, if you don't want to. I thought about doing a plainer one, but this one just caught my eye.

New clues posted. And I think I'll have more people guessing!
