Crochet Owl Amigurumi




About: Hello! My name is Ani Tugushi, I live in Tbilisi, Georgia. The project Turtle Whicky - Crochet began as just a hobby of mine. At first my intention was to make gifts for my friends and family. I loved crafti...

This is the written pattern for this cute little owl. It’s very easy to make. You can make it in different colors with different yarn. I made it for Christmas tree. You can also make a keychain.

The pattern is written in U.S. terms. Here is a list of the abbreviations used: Mr – Magic Ring Ch- Chain Sc- Single Crochet Inc- Increase (2 sc in next sc) Dec- Decrease (single crochet next two stitches together) sl st - slip stitch Fo- Fasten Off

I used pink, orange, blue, black and white super fine Acrylic Yarn and 2 mm crochet hook size, but you can use any weight with the appropriate hook size, gauge is not important. You will also need stuffing, needle and scissors.
Dimension of finished toy: 5-6 cm

The Magic Ring (or Adjustable Ring) is used when crocheting in rounds, and should be used for Amigurumi projects. The advantages of using the Magic Ring, is that once tightened, it leaves no hole in the center of your work. It replaces the step of "Ch 2 and single crochet in the 2nd chain from the hook", which is the first step in many crochet projects.

Note: Work in continuous rounds, do not join.


Step 1: Body:

Start with pink yarn:

Row 1: magic ring of 6 sc (6)

Row 2: [inc] rep 6 times (12)

Row 3: [inc, sc] rep 6 times (18)

Row 5 – Row 10: 24 sc (24)

Step 2: Change Yarn

With orange yarn:

Row 11 – Row 20: 24 sc (24)

FO. Leave long tail and cut.

Note: How to change Colors in crochet: begin the last stitch of your current color but STOP before doing the last yarn over, grab a loop of your new color and pull through the 2 loops remaining on your hook to finish the stitch.

Step 3: Eyes (make 2)

With black:

Row 1: magic ring of 6 sc (6)

With white:

Row 2: [inc] rep 6 times (12)

Row 3: [inc, sc] rep 6 times (18)

Row 4: 18 sc

FO and leave long tail for sewing. Sew to body. Try to sew them as close as possible.

Step 4: Beak:

With yellow:

Row 1: ch 2

Row 2: sc in 2nd chain from hook, ch 1, turn

Row 3: inc in next sc. (2)

FO and leave long tail for sewing. Sew between the eyes.

Step 5: Wings (make 2):

With blue:

Row 1: ch7

Row 2: inc in 2nd chain from hook, inc in next ch, sc in next 3 ch, ch 1, turn

Row 3: sc in next 3 sc, inc in next 3 sc, sl st in last sc.

FO and leave long tail for sewing.

Sew them to the body.

Step 6: Finishing:

Stuff your owl.

Slip orange yarn to the corner of the head, sew parts together.

Step 7: Tufts

Take some orange and blue yarn (or any colors you like), fold into two.

Find the middle of your bunch and insert your hook through several stitches in the corner of your owls head.

Pull through a loop and feed the yarn through this and pull tight.Repeat at the other corner. Trim the yarn to make his tufts.

Step 8: Hello, World!
