ASSEMBLY
  He's really easy to assemble. The eyes place them as shown in the image below. For the black dot in the eye I use a sharpie. I think it gives it a nice finish look to the eyes. If you're going to use a sharpie just be careful not to smear the marker. You can also embroidery or use felt for the black part of the eye. Embroidery the nose with gold yarn or use a felt whichever you prefer. Finally sew the wings in the sides of the owl.
Isn't he adorable?. ツ

  This was a request by a friend. She like the style of the Keroppi Wristlet that she wanted me to make her one but of Hello Kitty.

MATERIALS
*Crochet hook size 2.5mm & 3.5mm
*Worsted weight yarn: Black, Fuchsia, White or any other color of choice
*Zipper 18cm length
*Fabric of choice
*Stitch Marker to mark your rounds
*Tapestry Needle
*White Thread

PATTERN NOTES
  Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round or row indicate the total number of stitches for that round or row.

WRISTLET with 3.5mm hook
  Rnd 1: ch 31, hdc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in the next 28chs, 3hdc in next ch, hdc in next 28chs, 2hdc in last ch, sl st into the first st (62)

  Rnd 13-14: ch1, sc in the same stitch you sl st, sc around, sl st into the first st of previous rnd (62)
  Rnd 15: ch1, 3hdc in the same stitch you sl st, *sl st in next sc, 3hdc in next sc* repeat from * to * all the way around
F/O and weave in ends.

EYES/NOSE make 3 with 2.5mm hook
  Rnd 1: ch4, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in the next ch, 3sc in next ch, other side of the chs sc in next ch, 2sc in last ch (8)
  Rnd 2: sl st in only the first st to give it a even look
F/O and weave in ends.

BOW with 3.5mm hook
  Row 1: ch 14, hdc in 3rd ch from hook and across, ch2, turn (12)
  Row 2-4: hdc in each hdc across, ch2, turn (12)
F/O and weave in ends. With a 60" strand of yarn, tie it in the middle of the bow and keep wrapping in the center. Then weave in that strand of yarn in the back.

STRAP with 3.5mm hook
  ch 53 (or chain to desire length), sc in 2nd ch from hook and across (52)
F/O and leave a tail to sew the strap unto the wristlet. When folded is measures 6".

 ASSEMBLY
  The eyes you want to sew them between row 8 and 10. Place them 2.5" apart from each other.
  The nose between row 4 and 5 right beneath the middle of the eyes.
  Embroidery the whiskers with white thread.
  The bow place it in the upper right corner. I place it a little bit sticking out of the sides of the wristlet.
  Now you can pin the zipper and fabric in place to begin sewing them. This took me awhile cause I'm a perfectionist plus cause I had to sew it by hand since I don't own a sewing machine. But this would keep your items from falling out.
  Sew the strap on wristlet.

Your arms were always open when I needed a hug. Your heart understood when I needed a friend. Your gentle eyes were stern when I needed a lesson. Your strength and love has guided me and gave me wings to fly. - Sarah Malin
