  1. The owl blanket pattern isn’t free. The links (to two websites) lead to the creator of the pattern and they are selling it for $6.00. I’m not sure if the other 9 blanket patterns are free or not.
    Please triple check your sources before posting links and examples of “free patterns” online.

    • Sarah, I’m not sure where you were directed to, that you found the owl blanket pattern for sale, but I had no problems linking to the free pattern offered by RedHeart! Click on the link where is says – via WWW. REDHEART.COM under the title 10. OWL BLANKET (PDF) and just wait for the download to complete, open it, and the pattern is right there! Good luck, hope you can download it, it is such a lovely blanket!

      • The round owl blanket on is free, but it not the one shown on the pinterest link. So I trawled through a lot of irrelevant stuff just to find that the free blanket is not the one I want.

        Unfortunately this happens a lot with pinterest links.

        • I agree, I was looking for the rectangle owl afghan also but followed the link to the round one. If anyone knows how to get the pattern for the rectangle owl afghan please post, I would really appreciate it.

          • She’s on Etsy, ravelry and Facebook as the hat and I, so at the very least the image was used without proper credit

  2. I cannot believe how slow and almost impossible it is to open this web site. I need to make one more granny square and I can’t remember how to make it. Very frustrating.

  3. Sarah is right. Owl pattern is not free. It is sold on etsy,com. The owl pattern that you offer on 10 with pdf is acompletely a different model. Check your pictures and sıurces twice.

  4. I also came here for the owl blanket and found out that it is not free. Then went for the lion blanket and it is NOT not free either.
    What a joke!!!!

  5. The ‘owl obsession’ rectangular blanket you are looking for is by Mark end of The Hat and I. Here’s the link to buy the pattern. I bought it myself. 🙂

  6. I agree, many items I find are difficult to get to and information is confusing. When you do get there, there is often a charge for the pattern. I realize they want to make money, but $6 is too much and I think they should make available free if they put it on Pinterest! !
