I will show you two patterns ad large eye and a small eye and a few variations within those two sizes

I will be including a video tutorial on how to make each eye and a photo example of each eye in this post

These eyes can help you create many different types of character the most popular would be the Owl hat, but these can be used for many different types of characters.
