Adorable Free Crochet Owl Patterns To Make

This is a collection of amazing free crochet owl patterns to make. They are adorable and cute makes for kids and adults alike.

Owls are such magnificent animals, aren’t they? Did you know that they are solitary animals?

The upright stance, large, broad head, large eyes, sharp talons, and feathers adapted for silent flight make owls interesting animals to watch.

However, these qualities do not contribute to owls being the cutest in the animal kingdom.

Although not the cutest in real life, this is where crochet comes to the rescue. Crochet owl is much cuter than the real-life version, I must admit.

Large goofy eyes, yarn feathers, and big round belly make them super cute and beautiful crochet owl makes.

I have compiled a collection of adorable crochet patterns including owl amigurumi patterns. The owl motifs have been used in different types of projects.

You can make these free crochet pattern ideas for kids and adults alike!

How do you crochet an easy owl?

To translate any animal from the real world into a crochet version, you need to pick out a few characteristics.

For an owl, you need to incorporate three basic elements.

Firstly, the most important thing is the large eyes on the owls head. They are such a trademark look for an owl that you really need to exaggerate the size for a cute look.

You should look for large safety eyes with plastic backs to add to your project.

Secondly, a triangular crochet nose for an owl will definitely reaffirm that you are trying to crochet an owl.

And last but not least are the tufts or feathers on the owl’s head. You can make these with yarn tassels or a few strands of yarn attached to the top.

Once you incorporate all three elements, you will definitely end up with a cute realistic crochet owl.

Here are a few basic materials you will need: an appropriate mm crochet hook to the weight of yarn you are using, a tapestry needle, and a stitch marker to keep track of the first stitch and your progress.

I am gutted to say that I have made a couple of owl makes in my early days, however, I can not find a picture!

One was a cute lovey for a little girl using white yarn. The second make was a double crochet c2c owl blanket. I think that one might be lurking somewhere in the loft safely out away.

For this collection, I have chosen a wide range of crochet projects that use an owl as a main element.

From a small simple crochet animal amigurumi owl that you can use as a keychain or a bag charm, to a large hooded blanket or a towel.

There are also cute appliqués you can attach to pretty much anything. I have found cute owl purses or cross-body bags for kids.

Pillows and blankets would make a cute addition to a child’s bedroom decor.

You can also make a cute hat for a baby photoshoot.

I have also found a super cute “real” looking owl that was made in faux fur yarn and it is just the cutest thing.

Crochet Owl Amigurumi

This super cute amigurumi owl works up super quick. It is such a cute size that you can actually use it as a keychain for your keys, hang it on your handbag or a child’s backpack, or even on the mirror in your car.

The owl has a unique character and I love the sleepy look. The pattern will teach you the basics like magic ring, single crochet in rounds, and slip stitch, and has a lot of additional details that will finish this cute crochet owl off. For long-lasting cute little owls, use cotton yarn for amigurumi projects.

Or you can add a pin to the back of this owl design to make a pretty brooch. Maybe turn it into a keyring for Valentine’s day. You can customize it by using different colors too – use purple yarn, white yarn, and orange yarn for a completely different look.

When a crochet item is this cute, you can easily find a way to use it!
