Crochet Owl

With this design being an owl, I wanted to have the look of feathers — so I added a yarn scarf with my plain yarn (just like I did for my crocheted fun hats). I also used a 4.5mm crochet hook for the body and 3.5mm hook for the eyes and wings.

Main Body:

Row 1.     Start with a magic ring, chain 1 and 12 sc.

Row2.     2 sc into the first sc from the magic ring. Add 2 sc into each sc around.

Row3       1 sc, 2 sc in next stitch, continue all the way around

Row4.     1 sc in the first two stitches, 2 sc in next stitch, continue all the way around

Row5.      1 sc in the first three stitches, 2 sc in next stitch, continue all the way around.

Row 6.     1 sc in the next four stitches, 2 sc in next stitch, continue all the way around.

Row 7.      Sc in each stitch around.  *Repeat row fourteen times more

Row 22.    *5 sc, decrease a stitch, work decrease around to end of row.  Make sc in the last 3 stitches.

Row 23.     *8 sc, decrease a stitch, work pattern around row.  Sc in last stitch.

  • Cut the yarn leaving a 30 inch piece to be used to sew close the top.

Eyes:

Row 1.     Start with a magic ring, chain 1 and 6 sc.

Row 2.     2 sc into the first sc from the magic ring. Add 2 sc into each sc around.

Row3       1 sc, 2 sc in next stitch, continue all the way around

  • Cut the yarn leaving a 20 inch piece to sew the eyes onto the body.
  • You can add the eyes with the body open or with it closed, depends on personal preference.
  • With the eyes attached, you can embrioder the centres with a french knot, or you can also add a small black button as the centre of the eyes.

Wings:

Row 1.     Chain 10, (first 3 chains are the first dc) 4 dc into the 4th chain from hook.  2 dc into next chain, sc into each of the next four chains.  3 sc into the last chain spot to give the turn to the other side.  Sc into the next four chain, 2 dc into the next chain, slip stitch into the top of the chain 3.

  • Change colour for the outer ring.

Row 2.     Chain 2, hdc in same stitch, 2 hdc in next two stitches.  sc into next 6 stitches.  3 sc in the end stitch to make turn.  sc in next 6 stitches.  2 hdc in next three stitches.  Slip stitch into top of chain 2.

  • Cut the yarn leaving a 20 inch piece to sew the wings onto the body.
  • You can add the wings with the body open or with it closed, depends on personal preference.
  • The wings on the pink owl are attached all the way around.  It is a gift for a baby and she could suck on it and pull it off.  The other little owl is for a toddler and the top curve of each wing was attached to the body so it can move like a real wing.
