Amigurumi Owl II

I needed a pin cushion and a place to put my “in use” crochet needle to keep from losing them or poking myself. With all the craft supplies lying about I could stock my own Michael’s store. But surprisingly, I don’t have a pin cushion.

Here’s a quick owl I did that’s an amigurumi (little stuffed toy) that is doubling as my pin cushion.

I’ll soon learn how to write a proper pattern. But in the meantime, here’s my pattern.

Size G/4mm crochet needle
Yarn – body and wing of your choice, white for eyes, orange or yellow for beak, black for eyes or use buttons

EYES (2)

R1 – magic ring 6 single crochets, pull loop closed. How to make a magic ring
R2 – 2 single crochet in each stitch around (12)
– 1 slip stitch, leave end long to sew to body

BEAK

R1 – chain 5
R2 – single crochet across (4)
R3 – turn over and single crochet across (3)
R4 – turn over and single crochet across (2)
R5 – turn over and single crochet across (1)
Leave end long enough to attach to body

WINGS (2)

Same as beak to make a triangle shape.
R1 – chain 10
R2 – single crochet across (9)
R3-R10 – turn over and single crochet across until row 10 is only one single crochet
Leave end long enough to attach to body

BODY

Chain 10

R1 – In front loops only single crochet (10), do not turn row just continue around doing single crochets in the back loops(10), this will create the base for the top of your owl’s head.

R2-R17 – single crochet around (10)

R18 – single crochet first stitch, skip a stitch, around (5)

Attach all pieces to the body. Use black thread for center of eyes or sew buttons for eyes (as shown).
