Since time immemorial, the owl has a very special place in mythology. It is considered a symbol of knowledge and wisdom and is therefore often depicted with a doctor's hat and talar. But only at night actively surrounds the owl but also a mysterious aura. Whatever fascinates us about the animal, today the owl is a very popular symbol in the decoration as well as in the decoration area. It follows the instructions for a crocheted, wild owl, which can be used as a decorative figure or as a cuddly pillow.

Shopping list for a crochet owl about 30 cm high

Wool, which can be crocheted with needle size 4.5 in the following colors:

  • Apple green (1 ball)
  • Rusty red (1 ball)
  • Turquoise (1 ball)
  • Kiwi (2 balls)
  • Beige (1 ball)

The pattern owl is made of: Lang Yarns, Nelly (60% cotton, 40% polyacrylic).

If you work with a thinner wool and smaller needles, you get in the end result, a correspondingly smaller owl.

For the body with the apple green wool, first cast on a chain of 25 pieces of air. Crochet a spiral air stitch and crochet 25 stitches along the chain of stitches.

Crochet a total of 4 stitches at the end of the row for later rounding into the last stitch.

Crochet 25 stitches back along the bottom of the chain and crochet 4 stitches in the last stitch. Close this first round with a slit stitch (round 1 = total of 58 stitches). Cut the thread and pull it through the chain stitch.
