Who said owls should be soooo sweet? They also have their own character, they can be sad, angry or not enough sleep. I made a crochet owl applique pattern for you and I hope you will enjoy them.
This is my own pattern and I have clear instructions for you. Even a beginner will easily make such an owl.
You can use it as an applique to decorate teenager’s or boyfriend’s things. I’m sure they will appreciate this design!
So let’s start!
- For owl’s body I used white and black cotton yarn 50 gr / 90 m and crochet hook 4.5 mm.
- For wings and paws – white and black cotton yarn 50 gr / 200 m and crochet hook 1.5 mm.
- Needle for embroidery, black thread for embroidery, scissors
Measurement: Owl is approx. 4 inches (10 cm) high and 2.3 inches (6 cm) wide.
