This is a .pdf crochet pattern, written in standard American crochet terms. With this easy pattern, you can make a super realistic looking barn owl.

Size
If you use the recommended yarn, the owl will be 6 inch / 15 cm.

Materials
For this crochet barn owl you’ll need worsted weight yarn (Lètt Lopi) and an E US/3.5 mm crochet hook. You’ll need three colours: white, oatmeal and a left-over bit of barley. You also need a bit of light pink yarn to embroider the nose (you can also use the barley colour for that). For the eyes I’ve used 10 mm animal eyes. You also need fibrefill to stuff the owl. Lopi colour numbers: 0051, 0085 & 1419.

The crochet pattern contains
An intro with useful info. List of materials, tools and accessories needed. Brand and colour numbers of the needed yarn. A clear and colour coded description of how to crochet and assemble the animal. Pictures and illustrations to help getting everything right. All my patterns are text edited for correct English and have been tested by an experienced crocheter before publishing.

Yarn
Istex Lett lopi. I strongly recommend using a fuzzy yarn because it gives the best result.

Gauge is unimportant for this pattern. If the pieces are crocheted tightly enough, they will not gape visibly when stuffed. You can make a little test swap to be sure.
