Amigurumi Owl Pattern

This is an Amigurumi Owl I came up with last night. Aaron has cleverly chosen to name him Hooter (real original) and because it is so simple, I’ve chosen to share my pattern with the world!

Hooter is now up for sale in my Etsy shop, you can find him by clicking HERE

If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments.

This is a good “first-timers” pattern since there is so little to it. Things you will need to know are:

  • How to Single Crochet (you can learn here)
  • What a magic ring is
  • How to decrease

These are the materials you will need

  • Dark Brown Yarn
  • Light Brown Yarn
  • Black Yarn
  • Gold Yarn
  • wide eyed Sewing needle
  • Sewing thread (I use embroidery thread that coordinates with the yarn)
  • Scissors
  • Black felt (for eye brow, print out pattern is posted under “Eyes”)
  • Orange embroidery thread
  • Size G Hook

Abbreviations used in this pattern are-

  • SC- Single Crochet
  • ST- Stitch
  • STS- Stitches
  • DEC- Decrease
  • F/O- Fasten off

So here it is:

    Our editorial intern came across this picture of the… on your site: …, and was wondering if you would grant us permission to use it? We’d give you a link to your site.

    Thanks for your consideration!

  2. Hi Trish,

    I am starting my first owl and I have a pattern direction question.

    Do you use stitch markers and do a continuous round or do you join each round with a slip stitch and chain one?


    1. sorry I took so long to reply to this Lolly, I was bombarded with spam comments so I had to weed through them to get to the real ones.

      The pattern is worked in continuous rounds, I tend not to join rounds in my patterns because it creates a seam going up the entire piece.

      The pattern begins with the head and works its way down ^_^


  3. Love this pattern! One of my friends is obsessed with owls and the color purple, so I made this little guy using a light and dark purple instead of the browns. It turned out SO cute, I know she’s going to absolutely love it.


  4. This is lovely!
    We have a owl challenge in our heckle and knitting group on Facebook and I have linked to this one as an example.
    Thanks a lot for sharing


  5. I guess I’m the only one who doesn’t understand the wings. I ended up with 2 thimble shaped items… I can’t see how those become the wings in your picture. How are they supposed to be attached? Other than that, he’s super cute!


  6. I am about to venture in amigurumi for the first time because my daughter asked me to make her an owl, and this one is adorable! Thanks for the amazing pattern!
