Mini Owl | Free Crochet Pattern

Mini Owlet
Owls are adorable. With their big eyes, and their round faces, it’s no wonder they are so popular. This is the tiny version of my owl. He’s fun to make, fun to play with, and a great starter project!
You may sell products made by this pattern, but please link back to hookedbykati.etsy.com or credit Hooked By Kati on the craft fair tag.  Do not copy this pattern for distribution or sale. That’s not nice.
Finished owls stands about 4 inches tall, when using Red Heart Super Saver Yarn.  Gauge is not important. 
Beginner pattern.  Need to have knowledge of single crochet (sc), double crochet (dc), increases and decreases, working in the round, and amigurumi stuffing and part attachment (with yarn needle). This is a great toy to learn with.

Tip: Do not weave in ends on part attachment until you have all the parts where you want them and the owl looks just right.
       Lay small eye circles on top of large eye circles. Insert safety eye through the center of the layered eye circles. Use the safety eye back to attach the eye and the two circles together.
.       Sew the eyes to the body, centered under each “ear,” using the long tail on the large eye circle.
       Press wings flat and sew onto the sides of the body, in line with the bottom of the eye circles (about Row 12).
4.       Whip stitch beak between eye circles, centered on the body.
5.       Whip stitch feet two stitches apart at about round 5 of the body, centered under the eye circles.
For “ear fuzz”, cut 2 pieces of AC1 and AC2.  Place the hook through the top of one ear, loop one piece of each color around the hook, pull the loop through, then wrap the ends of the yarn around the hook and pull them through the loop. Pull tight and cut to desired length.  Repeat on other ear.
