FREE Crochet Pattern Stuffed Owl Toy

8.jpg

I’ve made tons of these as gifts for baby showers and Christmas. They work up so quickly that I can easily crank out several in an evening. They are endless possibilities for color combos and you could even add bells or other noise makers inside if making for an infant!

For this owl you will need:

Worsted weight yarn (I am a big fan of I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby)

Size G hook

Two buttons for eyes

Yarn Needle

Scissors

Stitch Markers (if desired… I’m too lazy for those.) 😉
