A small amount of wool yarn in at least two colors
17 mm safety eyes
E/4 (3.5 mm) crochet hook
Yarn needle


Make a crochet circle the size of the base you would like. The example is around 1.77 inches (4.50 cm) in diameter.

Figure 1

Continue crocheting in the round, without increasing, so you make a type of bucket.

Do this until it is as tall as the base circle diameter, so that the base diameter is the same height as the owl.

Figure 2

Stuff and fix eyes.

Sew up top of head.

Figure 3

Stitch several times in each ear, so that the ears stick up and the body becomes rounded.

Figure 4

Using the contrasting color, crochet into the body from one ear to the next.

Keep the same amount of stitches by using a turning chain until the end of the top of the head is reached.

Decrease stitches by not using a turning chain until you have just one stitch left.

Finish off.

Figure 5

Thread a needle onto the end of yarn.

Weave in all ends.

The authors alone hold the copyrights and licences to these patterns and tutorials, which means you CANNOT use their patterns to make something that you will sell to others afterwards. You can use them to make things for yourself. You can make some for your friends and ask them to pay for supplies. You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!
