Crochet Owl Toy Crochet Pattern

 

This past week, I wanted a quick project to make for my oldest daughter. Riley loves pink and I like to think that she loves owls (even though I’m the real owl lover around here). I’d seen a couple free owl patterns floating around, but none of them was exactly what I was looking for. I whipped up this adorable little owl in just a couple hours. For once, I wrote down the pattern as I went.

Materials:

-1 Skein of Vanna’s Choice yarn (or something similar) in the main color
-Small amounts of coordinating colors
G crochet hook

H crochet hook
-Buttons
-Tapestry needle

Free owl crochet pattern
For the body and legs, you’ll use the G crochet hook. For the eyes, beak, and flower, use the H hook.

Rosette: 

Ch 21.
Row 1: SC in the second ch from hook. *ch 2, skip 1, SC* around. SC in the last ch. 

Row 2: *Ch 2, 4 DC, ch 2, sl st* in the first chain loop and in each chain loop until you reach the end. Leave a long tail.

 You should have been creating a spiral of petals. Once you’re finished, arrange your spiral into a flower and secure with the tail. After you secure the back,  sew it on the body of the owl. Stuff your toy (pretty firmly) and whip stitch the top closed. Add tufts of yarn to the corners to define the owl’s “ears” a little and pass your creation on to an owl lover you know and love.
