This owl amigurumi is quick to make and will bring a smile to the receiver! The pattern works up nicely with La Mia Cottony and adding a keychain would make a great gift. Make a few owls and then turn them into a mobile for a nice hanging decoration for a nursery.


I made this on a whim back in the early 2000 while making a mini hat for one of my amigurumi. I turned the hat upside down and thought it would be a great base for an owl. I hope you enjoy the pattern as much as I do! Please be sure to tag me on Instagram @anniegurumi so I can see your owls.
