Where Can I Find A Crochet Owl Pattern?

Updated on April 22, 2014

How to crochet an Amigurumi Owl

Looking for a simple and free crochet amigurumi owl pattern? This amigurumi owl was inspired by a sewing version. It had a triangular flap of material that went over the top to form the beak.

You can find that pattern at MoonStitches.

Definition of Amigurumi: Crocheted in the round

I designed this simple amigurmi pattern with little sewing up as possible. In fact there is only One seam. You sew the top flap to the front (just like in the sewing pattern) in order to make the beak.

You can add whatever details you'd like to make this owl YOURS.

I hot glued google eyes, little crochet wings, crocheted talons and [because I had it at the time] a maple leaf nose. (I now add a felt nose)

Pattern First appeared on my blog and is also posted on CrochetMe.com.

If you need to have this little guy crocheted for you, visit my talented friend Alisha at Kawaii Crochet.com

Pattern Notes

Size:

It is 3 inches High and about about 2.5 inches stuffed.

Miscellaneous

Talons are crocheted in one piece and then hot-glued or sewn to the bottom of the Owl.

Techniques:

Crochet in the Round without joining.(spiral) Mark the end of rounds with a stitch marker to keep track of rows.

Stitches Used

ch - chain

sl st - slip stitch

      Really liked your explanation. I make lots of amigurumi toys but would find it difficult to describe how to do them. You have inspired me to try to see how to teach someone to make those that I have. Thanks!

      @anonymous: I know when I rewrote this I had problems following along - so please accept my apologies. You will make a chain of 3, Now, in the third chain from the hook you will be making 1hdc and 1sc (first talon made). For the next talon, you'll chain 3 and make a 1hdc and 1sc in 3rd chain. (second talon made) You'll repeat this patten two more times for a total of 4 talons.

      Do let me know if this makes more sense - if not I'll make a chart for you.

      I'm having trouble with the talons. You ch 3, and then 1hdc and 1sc (4x) in the 3rd ch from hook? It doesn't look right.

      @anonymous: You should have a total of 11 stitches. [6 total single crochets and 5 total decreases]

      Let me know if you still need help - I can make a quick one up and take more photos along the way.

      I love this pattern, just one question.

      Row 17 confuses me. How many stitches should be in that row at the end of the row?

      Thanks,

      Kate

      I love, love, love this lens. I used to be able to "hook a loop," but I have never been able to actually create something. This lens inspires me to try again and maybe teach my eight-year-old. Good job!

      @janeaustengirl lm: I encourage you to take a local class or find a volunteer to teach you along with your daughter. If you know the single crochet stitch, you can make this owl. Good luck. Thanks for stopping by.
