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:

- What a magic ring is
- How to decrease
These are the materials you will need
- Dark Brown Yarn

- Black Yarn
- Gold Yarn
- wide eyed Sewing needle
- Sewing thread (I use embroidery thread that coordinates with the yarn)
- 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

My name is Bethany Marcello, and I write for the yet-to-be-launched Craftfoxes.com – a crafting and social networking site.We’re putting together some great stuff for our upcoming launch, featuring everything from quilting to sewing to crafting and baking.
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!
Wow! Thanks, that would be wonderful. Use any picture from my website as you wish, Craft Foxes seems like it will be a wonderful community!
Thanks so much! My little owls came out AWESOME (and kinda retro too!). I’ve been passing along your excellent pattern. 🙂
cool! I’m glad you liked the turnout. If you can, send some pics, I’d love to post them here on my site ^_^
About how big does he end up being?
How big does he turn out?
I would say he is about 5 and 1/2 inches tall, 4 and 1/2 inches wide. Short and Stout ^_^
Your pattern doesn’t indicate hook size. What size did you use?
Sorry Meg, I edited my post. It is a size G hook
About how long do these take to make?? They’re adorable!!
typically takes me about a total of 4-5 hours to complete these little guys
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?
When we start the body, are we starting from the top (head) down?
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 ^_^

Thanks so much,
I finished my owl in two days. Great pattern.
can i see the back of it
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.
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
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!
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!
