You’ve seen the wide-eyed owl and the sleepy owl, but how about a drowsy owl?! Here is a new twist on my popular owl hat pattern! It’s pretty much the same pattern just changing colors when you crochet the eyes and the addition of a night cap which is an optional embellishment of course.
You will start by following my owl hat pattern which you can find HERE. Or you can follow any of my hat patterns found on my crocheting page. Just be sure to leave off the embellishments.
Once you have completed the basic hat. You will start on the eyes.
– Size H crochet hook
– Worsted weight yarn in Black, White, and an accent color (I used Blue)
– Tapestry needle
Magic Ring Tutorial
SC = Single Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
Drowsy Owl Eyes: Make 2
Starting with black yarn
Magic Ring, chain 2 and make 5 DC in ring. Just before you finish the last DC, change to blue yarn (as you see in the first picture below). Make 5 more DC in magic ring with blue yarn. Join to first DC and fasten off.
Round 2: Attach white yarn and chain 2. Make 2 DC in the first 5 stitches (for a total of 10 white DC). Just before you finish off your last white DC, add blue yarn (just like you did in your magic ring round). Make 2 DC in each of the last stitches in round (for a total of 10 blue DC), join to the first DC and fasten off. (20 DC)
Round 3: Attach white yarn and chain 1. Make 2 SC in first stitch, 1 SC in next stitch until you reach the end of the white from the previous round. Just before you finish your last white SC attach blue yarn and continue around making 2 SC in first stitch, 1 SC in next, until you reach the end of the round, join and fasten off.
Weave in all ends except for one long blue strand and one long white strand. You will use these to sew on your eyes to the hat. It helps to overlap the eyes slightly in the middle.
Chain a strand of black yarn long enough to reach across both eyes. Sew on the chain across the eyes (in the middle) with your tapestry needle.

When you finish the tiny sleeping cap, should it be sort of stiff? Mine came out that way, and I'm not sure if I'm crocheting too tightly, or if I'm just being paranoid.
