I've been crocheting a lot of animals lately and technically since they are all crocheted in the round they are called Amigurumi. So here goes my Owl Amigurumi pattern. Now this pattern is for the basic body. You can add whatever you will to make this owl YOURS. I added easy 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)

Materials List

You'll need some scraps of Each color you will be using as well as an F or G crochet hook.

(In the picture I used Sage Red Heart 4ply acrylic Yarn. )

If you will be crocheting the wings, talons, and eyes you will need more.

For an Owl exactly like that in the picture:
Sage Yarn
Chocolate Yarn
Fiber Fill
Tapestry Needle
Google Eyes
Hot Glue/gun

Felt (nose)

Finished Size

The size depends on your needle size and yarn thickness. In this version I used a size G needle and 4ply acrylic yarn. It is 3 inches High and about about 2.5 inches stuffed.


Gauge is not important for this project.


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

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

I'm kind of confused on one part. Maybe I'm just reading it incorrectly, but it seems as if there is no row 16 and I don't understand how in row 13 there are 24 stitches and only 16 in row 14. Is there a missing decrease there?


But other than that one part, the pattern is quite simple and cute! I'm just excited to get mine done.

Hay this is really lovely and i would like to opt for it. As it is, Its name is also unique. Good job! Looking for the up to date information and up to the mark ideas. Thanks a lot for the 70-562 and also about the other terms such as testking 70-431 as well as the lateste and hottest 70-432 . Unique ideas about the  testking 70-640 download is always welcomed and thanks for such unique information.

first off LOVE the owl!

Secondly, I am in the process of making one of these for a friend, but I started by following one of your youtube videos and long story short I am at step 16 with a larger version ending in about 62st.  would repeating steps 17-19 until I got to the 16st as originally stated in step 16 work? it makes sense in my brain but I'm not sure lol.


TIA! :3
