Tutorial for the Killian Owl Hat


  1. Neat tutorial, thanks! I'm already thinking of how to use it in a few last minute Christmas crocheted presents.

  2. I love your site, I love this stitch.

  3. Found you through Pinterest. Thank you for the tutorial! I'm going to try using this stitch on a felted purse.

  4. I'm sorry, but I can't figure out how to crochet the next row beyond what you've shown in your pictures.. Do you have more detailed instructions please? Thank you!

  5. Thank you for the tutorial et owl hat's pattern

  6. I'm very new to the crochet world...would you be able to explain this in more detail for me? I'm very confused, but really want to make a blanket for my niece using this stitch. Please and thank you!

  7. If I may try to answer your questions about the next row... I see you asked a couple months ago! In the picture at the top of the page (brown and tan crochet), It looks as if each row that is crocheted is done using this feather stitch. That is where the little stitches above the feather are showing through... look at the row above it and you can see they are feather stitches as well. In her example, she is working a few rows of single crochet in the same color, then doing a row of the feather stitch. You can do it this way, or add another blue row onto the top of the example.. or you can add another pinkish single crochet row above the blue feather stitch. I think once you start in you will "see" how to do it. I hope that helps you, those who were confused. It's a very nice stitch and very versatile. Have fun! :)

    1. hmm, am I seeing a row of sc after the row of star stitch?

  8. Tried to share this on FaceBook. They said this site was potentially unsafe.
