Tiny Owl Crochet Pattern

Meet Nel the tiny owl

I originally designed this small owl as a topper for my wedding cake (read the full story, here!), but so many people fell in love with him, that I made a pattern! So now, you can make your own tiny owl, too!

This owl measures approximately 4″ tall when completed, when using a worsted weight yarn. Use a thinner yarn, and get an even tinier owl!

Materials Required

4 colors of yarn required to crochet size H crochet hook 5.0mm tapestry needle polyester stuffing 12mm black animal eyes

Ella Rae Classic (Tan: 35 yds, White: 15 yds, Orange: 5 yds and Yellow: 5 yards) was used to crochet the sample. This pattern can be used with any weight yarn, but plan on using more yardage for bulkier yarns.

Skills Required
