Owls, Foxes and Coons-Oh My!

Time to share my first pattern!  Well, not exactly a crochet stitch pattern, but I would like to share some pixel graphs that I have worked on. It started with this owl:

At first I wasn't even sure what to do with this. Really I just drew up a graph to play around with the c2c stitch. It ended up what I thought was a strange size until I realized it was the perfect size to fit a euro pillow!  So that's what it became.  

A big, cozy floor pillow for my daughter to flop on!  This was done in double crochet c2c with an I hook to achieve this size. 

Then I got to thinking that several other animals would be fun too. I haven't gotten around to making them yet, but one day I envision forest critter pillows everywhere :) Here are a few of the graphs I have done.

At this time, I don't have any written pattern for the C2C, but if you follow along on the graph it'll turn out great!  I would love to see these in SC or Bobble as well.  

I have a few other animals that I am trying to work on, but I would love suggestions also!  I made these graphs intentionally simple so that there aren't a ton of crazy color changes, and I have to say the owl was a lot of fun to make!
