Odin the Owl Amigurumi
New Crochet Pattern!
Owls are my favorite birds and I really wanted to create an Owl Crochet Pattern that was both cute and easy to make. Odin the Owl Amigurumi is what I came up with, and he just happens to check both boxes! There is something so mysterious about owls, but they are just so loveable with those big eyes – always looking curious, don’t you think? I always wonder what they are thinking… “Hope I don’t get recruited to Hogwarts!” ✨ or “I’m really tired of mice, won’t someone make me a cheeseburger?” 🍔 Just kidding, about that last one. No matter what they’re thinking – I’m thinking how much I love this Mini Owl Amigurumi Pattern. I hope y’all love it as much as I do! 🦉
Easy Owl Crochet Pattern
I had so much fun designing this small owl amigurumi pattern, and I already have another one on my hook! I said before that I kind of want to design nothing but Halloween Patterns, so we’re going to count this cutie toward that goal. Owls are definitely a mysterious animal, and I think Odin would look amazing as part of your apothecary setup! Yes, I’m now planning another owl in Halloween colors. The best part is that this pattern is quite easy to make with simple stitches and repeats, and only a small amount of sewing basic decreases are used to give him shape. This free crochet pattern for an owl would make a great pattern to try amigurumi for the first time, or to practice your amigurumi skills like yarn under single crochet and invisible (front loop only) single crochet decreases.
This crochet owl amigurumi pattern will be so much fun to use to decorate your home for autumn, to give to your fave wizard or owl lover, and makes an adorable stocking stuffer too! You can make your amigurumi owl in any colors you like! I fun and bright colors, but you may find your favorite ornithologist would love to see realistic colors, and I can see making some fun wizarding world owls in house colors or adding a house scarf for your favorite Harry Potter fan! ❤️⚡️💚💙🦉

STITCH TO OWL BODY: Stitch the wings to each side of the body, right where the body and head meet, at R23. I stitched just along the top round of the wings to secure.
