Owl Eyeglass Holder

Last year I was overwhelmed at the response to my Owl Eyeglass Holder. Because some crocheters aren’t familiar with the crocodile stitch, this week I created a video tutorial. This is a simple project for learning the crocodile stitch, and the owl is just so darn cute! Originally it was designed as an eyeglass holder, but it also makes a cute little plush toy.
