I hope you think this pattern is a HOOT.Β  I think they’re pretty cute πŸ™‚ AND as a little bonus, this pattern can even double as a penguin. I mention how you can make this owl into a penguin below.

Information Before Starting:
You can either make an Owl with bulky yarn (5 weight) or regular yarn (4 weight). The bulky Owl and the regular yarn owl are made the same with exception of the eyes. I didn’t use bulky yarn for the bulky owl’s “contrasting” colors.
In this pattern, “Main Color” is used to describe the main color of the Owl. “Contrasting Color” is used to describe the belly, feet, and beak color.
You can also use this pattern to make a Penguin! All you need to do is not make the ears and sew the beak on vertically, not horizontally.

Supplies:
4mm Hook, 8mm Safety Eyes, Tapestry Needle, Stuffing, Scissors
Yarn Used: Cloud & Star Blue in Red Heart “Hygge Charm”, White in Big Twist Value

Stitches Used:
Magic Ring, Ch, Sc, Inc, Dec, Dc, FLO (Front Loop Only), BLO (Back Loop Only).

Head

Round 1: In Main Color, 6 Sc in Magic Ring (6)
Round 2: *Inc* all around (12)
Round 3: *Inc, Sc* all around (18)
Round 4: *Inc, 2 Sc* all around (24)
Round 5: *Inc, 3 Sc* all around (30)
Round 6: *Inc, 4 Sc* all around (36)
Round 7: *Inc, 5 Sc* all around (42)
Round 8: *Inc, 6 Sc* all around (48)
Round 9-16: *Sc* all around (48)
Round 17: *Inc, Sc* 6 times. Sc in next 12 st, *Inc, Sc* 6 times, Sc in last 12 st. (60)
Round 18-19: *Sc* all around (60)
Round 20: *Dec, Sc* 6 times. Sc in next 12 st, *Dec, Sc 6* 6 times, Sc in last 12 st. (48)
Round 21: *Dec, Sc 6* all around (42)
Round 22: In BLO (Back Loop Only), *Dec, Sc 5* all around. We do this in the BLO so the bottom of the head doesn’t protrude out. (36)

Round 23: In BLO, *Dec, Sc 4* all around (30)
At this point, I make the Eyes and Beak. Once you finish them, sew them on and continue with the Head. Refer to Eyes & Beak portion of the pattern now, then continue Head.


Round 24: In FLO (Front Loop Only), *Sc* all around (30)

Round 25: In BOTH Loops, *Inc, Sc 4* all around (36)
Round 26: *Sc* all around (36)
Round 27: *Inc, Sc 5* all around (42)
Round 28: *Sc* all around (42)
Stuff head here. Make sure you stuff firmly.
Round 29: *Inc, Sc 6* all around (48
Round 30-36: *Sc* all around (48)


Round 37: Sc in next 2 St, *Inc, Sc* 6 times, Sc in next 16 st, *Inc, Sc* 6 times, Sc in last 6 St (60)
Round 38-39: *Sc* all around (60)
Round 40: Sc in next 2 St, *Dec, Sc* 6 times, Sc in next 16 st, *Dec, Sc* 6 times, Sc in last 6 St (48)
Round 41: *Dec, Sc 6* all around. Stuff now. (42)

 

 

 

 

 

Note: At this point, we work in the Back Loop Only. We do this to have our work decrease more inward rather than outward. Be sure to not overstuff the bottom of this piece, as you want the bottom piece to be FLAT and not protruded so your Owl can sit! Make sure your work looks like the photos.

Round 42: In BLO (Back Loop Only), *Dec, Sc 5* all around (36)
Round 43: In BLO, *Dec, Sc 4* all around (30)
Round 44: In BLO, *Dec, Sc 3* all around (24)
Round 45: In BLO, *Dec, Sc 2* all around (18)
Round 46: In BLO, *Dec, Sc* all around (12)
Round 47: In BLO, *Dec* all around (6)
Finish off and adjust any stuffing if you need to, make sure the base of the Owl sits flat. Sew shut.

  1. Hi could you tell me how tall this owl is please

    1. Hi there, this owl is about 7″ tall. Yours may be larger or smaller depending on your tension. I hope this helped!

  2. hola como estas podria explicarnos las abreviaciones porque al momento que voy tejiendo no comprendo las siguientes :CH,SC,INC,DC,ST por que no puedo darle forma ala cabeza. gracias

    1. Β‘Hola! No hay problema. Esto es lo que significan las abreviaturas.
      Ch – Chain / Cadaneta
      Sc – Single Crochet / Punto Bajo
      Inc – Increase / Aumentar (dos puntos bajos en una puntada)
      Dec – Decrease / Menguar
      Dc – Double Crochet / Punto alto
      St – Stitch / Punto

  3. I was curious of the pattern differences between the grey and pink owl.

    1. Hi there! The owls use the exact same pattern, with exception of the eyes being slightly different depending on if you’re using regular or bulky yarn. Both ways to make the eyes are provided in the pattern πŸ™‚ The grey owl is bigger because it uses a thicker yarn, and the yarn used for it is Red Heart Hygge in Cloud. I hope that helps!

  4. I love your patterns, you are very talented. Thank you so much for sharing them with everyone. I especially love that you crochet the head and body as one piece instead of separate and then having to connect them to each other. I really appreciate that. I’m sure i’ll be trying many of your patterns. So glad I found your patterns.

    1. Hi Mary, I can’t say how much I appreciate such a kind comment. I’m so happy you like the patterns I make, I really try to create them in an easy manner. Thank you Mary again! I hope you find many more amigurumis to create from my site πŸ™‚ I hope you have an amazing day.

  5. Thank you for your patterns. I will be trying to make these in the near future. Your are extremely talented. Once again. Thank you!!!

    1. Aw thank you so much, you are so nice! I appreciate it a lot, I hope you can give some of these amigurumis a try πŸ™‚ Thanks so much Pat!

  6. Very well written. Love how the head and body are one. Had lots of fun and very happy with the results.

    1. Thank you so much! I’m happy to hear that you liked how the head and body are one. That’s something I’ll try to keep doing!

  7. Am I allowed to sell the finished product of the owl or no?

    1. Hi Ally! You can sell the finished toy you make from this pattern πŸ™‚ You just can’t sell the written pattern itself. I hope that makes sense, let me know if you have any other questions!

  8. Thank you for this pattern , you are very talented . I’m 12 years old and this is my second pushie . thank you so much for this pattern . Now I have beatifull owl.

    1. Hi Mila! Aw you are so kind to leave this comment, thank you so much! I’m so glad you made this owl, I’m sure yours looks so cute 😁 It’s also so wonderful you’ve recently learned to crochet at 12, I’m sure you will crochet for years to come πŸ™‚ It’s such an amazing hobby!

  9. Hi,
    I am making the owl and I am confused about Rounds 17, 20, 36, and 40. Can you explain what you meant better then what was written in the pattern please.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Beth! Thanks so much for your question, I hope I can help πŸ™‚

      I’ll explain Round 17, I think explaining this round in more detail will help you with Rounds 20, 36, and 40!

      Round 17: *Inc, Sc* 6 times. Sc in next 12 st, *Inc, Sc* 6 times, Sc in last 12 st. (60)

      First, we see these *stars*. Anytime we see stars, we must repeat the stitches inside them for the stated amount of times. So it says *Inc, Sc* 6 times. So we will repeat *Increase in the next stitch, 1 Single crochet in the next stitch*. Repeat that a total of 6 times.

      Then, we see “Sc in the next 12 st. This means we will make 1 single crochet in the next 12 stitches!

      After this, it says *Inc, Sc* 6 times. So once again we will repeat *Increase in the next stitch, 1 Single crochet in the next stitch* 6 times πŸ™‚ Then the pattern says “Sc in the next 12 st”, so make 1 single crochet in the next 12 stitches. You’ll meet the end of the round!

      I hope this was able to help, this should help with the other rounds you mentioned 😁 You’ll always repeat what’s inside the *stars* for the stated amount of times! So if you see *Dec, Sc 1*, you will make 1 decrease, then make 1 single crochet in the next stitch. Repeat that sequence for the stated amount of times. Please let me know if I can help with anything else, I’m always happy to clarify anything! ❀️
