“Get ready to be wowed by these amazing crochet owl patterns! My older son loves Owls and I have made him 2 – 3 different versions. These cute and cuddly creatures are a fun and creative way to hone your skills and add some charm to your home decor.
From simple amigurumi designs to intricate mandala owls, there’s a pattern for every skill level and style. So grab your hooks and yarn, and let’s dive into the world of amazing crochet owls!
There are over 200 species of owl, which make each version of a crochet owl unique and special. To crochet your owl, you need to gather your materials which include the following
Yarn – The weight of which would be dependent on your preference. You can choose any weight of yarn for your crochet owls. The heavier the yarn, the bigger your crochet owl.
Hook – Go with the size of crochet hook you are most comfortable with, especially the one suggested in the pattern.
Colors – You would need more than one color for a beautiful crochet owl. One of the most important details when making your owls is the facial details. You want those big and beautiful eyes to be sticking!
Safety eyes or Felt – The size of your eyes would be dependent on how big the owl is. You would need a pair and it can range from 8 – 18 mm safety eyes or buttons. You could even cut out felts.
Stuffings are an important part of crochet owls – Make sure not to overfill in order to achieve a perfect shape.
Tapestry needle – to sew in the ends.
After you have gathered your materials, the next thing in crocheting your owl is the sticking characteristics of an owl.
You can make your Owl in the traditional Amigurumi style – where the body is made in one piece and the parts are made separately and joined together.
Another method is to make the main body in flat and then join them together. The post consists of patterns made using the methods above.
