Crochet Owl Amigurumi


Here is a free pattern for a cute little crochet owl.


 

Hi everyone! This little crochet owl is the second animal for the crochet baby mobile that I made for my sister. She has a tribal nursery theme so that will also be the theme of this mobile! The first animal was a small crochet bear, you can find the crochet pattern below.

Pattern: How to crochet a little owl?


The Wings (make 2):

Work in rounds, do not turn unless specified. If needed, use a stitch marker for the first stitch of each round.

With the light brown yarn and the 3.5 mm hook

Round 1: start 6 sc in a magic ring. (6)

Round 2: [1 sc in next st, 1 inc] x3. (9)

Round 3: [1 sc in all st]. (9)

Round 9: [1 sc in next st, 1 dec] x4. (8)

Fasten off, leave a long tail for sewing. Keep them for later.

I then use a hairbrush to brush the arms and make them fluffier. I used the same method for the entire owl. So if you want a fluffy bear, brush your entire crochet owl with the hairbrush (dog brush works even better). I did it for every part, except the beak and the eyes.

In order to make the “hair”, cut 4 lengths of yarn of about 5 inches (12 cm). Insert your crochet under the stitches where you want to attach the “hair” and grab the middle of 2 strands, bringing it through the head. Now with your hands, wrap both ends of the strand and pull them through the loop. Repeat the same work for the other side of the head. Cut the yarn to a length of your choice. With your tapestry needle, separate the yarn (sorry I didn’t take any pictures, but I used the exact same technique for my crochet chick.
