Free Crochet Pattern: Pink Owl Amigurumi Doll


Free Crochet Pattern: Pink Owl Amigurumi Doll

How cute is this little pink owl? Her sweet little face (and fluffy ears!) just makes you want to snuggle her! I love the way her eyes and beak are layered on her face for a cool dimensional effect and the embroidered feathers on her belly are just the the perfect finishing touches. And don’t forget those little embroidered eye lashes!

This amigurumi owl is ready for some snuggles. So make one for someone who could use a little amigurumi hug. Your gift will be much appreciated!

Happy crocheting!

Eyes

Make two.

The eyes are crocheted in joined rounds, not in spirals. End each round with a slip stitch and start each round by chaining one stitch.

Round 1: In black, 6 sc in magic ring (6).
Round 2: In light blue, 6 inc (12)
Round 3: Switch to white. Repeat (1 dc, 1 inc) (18)
Round 4: Repeat (2 sc, 1 inc) (24)

With white yarn embroider a glitter in each eye. (See photo).

Sew or or glue the eyes on the face (in this case they are glued with a silicone gun).

Embroider three little eyelashes in black yarn on each eye (see photo).

Beak

In yellow.

Crochet in rows, not in rounds.

Round 1: Chain 5
Round 2: 4 sc
Round 3: 2 dec
Chain 1 and sc around the entire piece.

Sew or glue the beak between and on top of the eyes (see photo).

Feet

In yellow, make two, crochet in rounds.

Each foot is made up of three little toes joined together.

Toes (3 per foot):
Round 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)
Round 2-4: 1 sc in every stitch (6)

Put the 3 toes together like this:
Round 5: 3 sc in the first toe, 3 sc in the second toe, 6 sc in the third toe, 3 dc in the second toe, 3 sc in the first toe (18)
Round 6-7: 1 sc in every stitch (18)
Round 8: Repeat (1 sp, 1 dec) (12)
Round 9-10: 1 sc in every stitch (12)
Round 11: 6 dec (6)

Don’t stuff the toes or feet, sew to close.
Sew or stick the feet under the body (see photo). This will also give more stability to the owl.

Ears And Feathers

The ears are made in fuchsia pink by making little tassels on top op the head.

The easiest way to do this is by cutting some yarn stings and looping them in under a stitch on the head. You can then finish the tassels by knotting a smaller piece of yarn around it.

Embroider the little feathers on the belly in fuchsia pink.

Sew a pink fuchsia wood flower next to the owl’s left ear.

And finally add a wooden button with the word “handmade” on the back.

Congratulations! You’ve finished your cute amigurumi owl!

Decoration Alternatives

If you don’t have a button to decorate your owl with, consider using other cute little ornaments. I have included two patterns for this purpose: a little crochet butterfly and a crochet bow. This way your owl will be the sweetest one out there!

BONUS PATTERN: Little Butterfly!

Chain 8, close the loop with a slipstitch.
Chain 3, 2 dc, repeat (ch 3, 3 dc)*7.
Chain 3, slst in first set of chain 3, slst in second sc.
In the first and second “holes”: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 4 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc.
In the third “hole” crochet 1 sc, 1 hdc, 2 dc, ch 3. Slst in first of the ch 3. Continue with 2 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc.
In the fourth “hole”: repeat third hole.
In fifth and sixth hole crochet 1 sc, 1 hdc, 4 dc, 1 hdc, 1sc.
In seventh and eigth hole: repeat third hole.

You’ll end up with a “flower” with two different kinds of petals (round and “pointy”).

Fold this flower over, you can do this in different ways.

In a contrasting color chain 11, fasten off. Tie this piece around the folded flower to create the body of the butterfly and cut off leaving some ends as the antennae (see photo!).

BONUS PATTERN: Little Heart Bow!

This pattern is worked in two loops. The stitches that are not worked in those loops are worked into the middle space. This is the part between the hearts.

Round 1: Chain 9. Slst in the 8th chain from the hook and slip stitch into the 1 remaining chain. Chain 8. Slst into 8th chain from the hook. Slip stitch into the middle of the two loops.

Round 2: Slst into the first loop. Into this loop crochet: 4 sc, 2 hdc, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 slst, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 2 hdc, 4 sc, 1 slst. Slst into the middle of the two loops again. Slip stitch into the second loop. Repeat the stitches you made into the first loop. Slst into the slip stitch from the previous round in the middle space.

Round 3: Slst into the first slip stitch you made in the previous round. Crochet 1 sc into the next 4 stitches, 2 hdc into the next 2 stitches, 2 dc into next stitch, 1 hdc in the next stitch, slip stitch into the loop.
Continue with 1 hdc, 2 dc in next stitch, 2 hdc in next 2 stitches, 1 sc in next 4 stitches, slst into slst of previous round. Slst into middle space. Repeat round 3 for the other loop (this will form the other heart). End with slst into the middle space.

Round 4: 1 slst in next 2 stitches, 1 sc into next 6 stitches, 2 hdc into next 3 stitches, 1 sc in next stitch, 1 slst on each side of slip stitch from previous round.
Continue with 1 sc, 2 hdc in next 3 stitches, 1 sc in next 6 stitches, slst in next 2 stitches. Repeat round 4 for the other half.

Finish off, but leave a long tail to wrap around the center.

Fold your bow in half length wise and wrap your long tail around the center.
