If you’ve been following my blog for awhile you know I can’t get enough of owl projects! Scroll through my blog, you will see plenty of owl crafts and owl crochet patterns… even fun owl cupcakes! This sweet crochet owl is perfect for Valentine’s Day because he has a little heart on his tummy. I used the soft and squishy Bernat Blanket yarn which makes this little guy extra plush and quick to work up.
– Bernat Blanket Baby yarn in Seafoam and Pink. Plus a bit of white/neutral for the eyes. Shop all colors at Yarnspirations.com.
– Size J Crochet Hook
– Triangle button for nose (purchase at JOANNs) or a bit of orange yarn to stitch on the beak.
– Poly-fil Fiber Stuffing
– 9mm Safety Eyes
– Tapestry Needle
Feel free to follow heart graph or just follow the written pattern below (color changes are written out)
NOTE: I used the knit-look (waistcoat stitch) just in the heart area. Short video below:
Another Note: Wouldn’t this make a cute little crochet heart bowl instead of an owl if stopped after round 14?!
