Owl Amigurumi Pattern “Dreamland”

Owl are you? Here’s a sweet Owl Amigurumi pattern I wrote up of these wise creatures.

I made these crochet owls in an ombre (or should I say owlmbre? :P) of my favorite color, blue. I call them “Owls in Dreamland” because of their sleepy eyes. But they’re more in a meditative and contemplative state of mind!

Owls in many societies are known to be a symbol for “knowledge, wisdom, and good judgement.”

This Owl Amigurumi features include a ruffly tuft of feathers poking out from its chest area. The body is made first, and then the contrasting mask is created and sewn over the body.

And look! These Dreamland Crochet Owls found a lovely cloud of pink fluffy hydrangeas to rest and dream upon. (I liked how this photo came out so much, it’s currently my new phone wallpaper! :D)

Originally I had actually made a larger Owl amigurumi pattern, but then I came out with these mini guys because I wanted them to be more streamlined with my other bird amigurumis such as my Eggy Chick pattern and my Duck Amigurumi “Fair is Fowl” pattern. They look great as a collection and complement one another! (I need to take a photo of all of them together at one point.)

What a happy crochet Owl Family!

3. Sew Wings onto Body. Placement: It should be about 1 Round below the line of where the Ruffles are placed and placed evenly against the edge of the contrasting mask.

4. Sew Ears onto Head.

5. Sew Feet to Bottom. 2 Talons will stick out and the last stem will be used to sew onto bottom of Owl.

    They are so beautiful, did you make the big one with the same pattern with bigger yarn or is there a pattern?

    Thank you for your free patterns

      Thank you Pauline! I’m working on writing up the pattern for the larger Owl as well, but that one will probably be available as a premium pattern.
