Are you looking for a quick free pattern that is easy for beginners? I have one! I wrote this tutorial a few years ago when I wanted to make a little crochet thing for Halloween. I was going for something cute and creepy at the same time. I started to draw – and a funny little bird appeared!

I decided that it would be a crow, but it can be a baby raven as well since these species are very similar. Now I’m sharing my free raven (or crow) crochet pattern with you.

A small amigurumi bird made from this tutorial will measure about 3’’ in length. It is a little crochet project that works up very fast. You need just a couple of hours to finish it. Perfect as a break from crocheting grand blankets!
