With this easy pattern, you can make a scary cute and realistic looking crochet crow or raven. This .pdf crochet pattern is written in standard American crochet terms.

Size
If you use the recommended yarn, your raven / crow will be 5 inch / 13 cm sitting.

Materials
For this crochet raven / crow you’ll need worsted weight yarn (Lètt Lopi) and an E US/3.5 mm crochet hook. You’ll need two colours: Black (1/3 of a 100-yard skein) and grey (not so much). For the eyes I’ve used 9 mm animal eyes. You also need fibrefill to stuff the raven; pipe cleaners for the feet are optional. Lopi colour numbers: 0059 & 0057.

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.
