Crochet Amigurumi owl
You are in the mood for a cute handicraft project, which is guaranteed to offer that special something and can also be implemented quickly and easily? Then you should definitely take a closer look at the so-called Amigurumis - small, cute animals and figures, which thanks to their small size are perfect as key rings, small lucky charms or cuddly toys. On this page we would like to introduce you to a very special kind of amigurumis, namely the popular crocheted owl. It has become a real trendsetter in the last few years, which is worn by young and old alike and can be used as decoration or has found a place in many other areas of life.
An owl Amigurumi can be crocheted in many different designs, but usually the crocheted owl comes along relatively plain and looks simply cute thanks to its large round eyes. However, some of our instructions here at Crazypatterns also introduce you to designs where you can crochet an owl with a cap or other accessories.

Crochet owl - what is important?
You have chosen one of our instructions for crocheting Amigurumi owl? Then take your time and see how it works and what you should have ready for it. Usually you need different crochet hooks, for example, but of course you should also have a few different yarns ready.
Apart from that, an Owl Amigurumi consists of some basic components. These are the body and the head on the one hand and all other limbs and accessories on the other hand. The head and body of your owl are usually crocheted in one piece (please note that there are some variations in the instructions, so check them out first), so they form the basis of your amigurumi. Spiral rounds are especially important for crocheting, because head and body are crocheted in one piece. But before you close them completely, you should remember to stuff both with some filling cotton wool. This will give your owl the necessary body volume.
Afterwards you can crochet the remaining parts, for example the wings, beak, ears, feet or whatever your instructions tell you to do. All parts will be sewn to the head and body of your owl Amigurumi. So you should consider that you should know a little bit about sewing. If not: Don't worry, our instructions will show you this step clearly and understandably.
Materials for an Amigurumi owl
For your Owl Amigurumi you need a whole range of different materials. Most important are yarn and needles. With crochet yarn you can do whatever you want, so your crochet owl can be as colourful as you like or in a more unusual colour. If, on the other hand, you want it in a classic design, then you should go for brown shades. But you can also have a few other colours, such as orange for the beak and black for the eyes. When it comes to crochet hooks, it's best to follow the recommendations in your instructions - you'll often need a few needles of different sizes, plus a sewing needle for sewing.
Apart from that you can have scissors or a knife ready in case you want to cut a thread. You will also need filling wool and possibly glue and safety eyes if you want to decorate your Hello Kitty with additional accessories.
