This cute Owl is part of my Shelf Sitters Collection, even though she doesn’t have long legs that could hang over the edge of the shelf. :)

The Shelf Sitters never stay in one place for long here. My kids are just too fascinated by them and love to play with them. :)

The Owl is an absolute favorit.

I had to make several already in all kinds of color-combinations.

The Owl is cute. It’s easy and fast to crochet. You can play around with colors to make it look different each time. And it makes a perfect gift. :)

❤ Crochet skill level: easy.

❤ Size: 9.5 cm
The size depends on the gauge and yarn you’re using.
I’m using Puppets Lyric yarn from Coats and a 3 mm hook.

❤ The pattern contains lots of reference pictures and step-by-step-instructions.

❤ Crochet pattern in PDF format, available in two languages:

English: US crochet terms, English texts and descriptions
German: German crochet terms, German texts and descriptions

Note: The German version is available through Etsy and DaWanda.

❤ info:
The figure is mostly crocheted in continuous rounds/spirals;
rounds are not joined;
use a stitch-marker to mark the beginning of each round;

❤ you should be familiar with:

  • crocheting a chain
  • crocheting back and forth in rows
  • crocheting in rounds/spirals
  • magic ring (recommended)
  • single crochet
  • double crochet
  • changing yarn-color (instructions included)
  • slip stitch
  • increase and (invisible) decrease
  • surface crocheting (instructions included)
  • you should also have some basic and sewing skills

❤ needed materials:

  • crochet hook (size depends on your yarn)
  • stuffing
  • tapestry needle
  • scissors
  • stitch-marker (recommended; I use a paper clip or a piece of scrap-yarn)
  • yarn in the colors of your liking (I use Puppets Lyric 8/8 yarn)

If you are making the figure for a child, washable yarn and stuffing is recommended.
