Owls can be made of any kind of yarn. I used cotton yarn (16 wpi – sport category) and steel crochet hook No. 0 (2 mm).The finished Mama owl is about 6″ (15 cm) tall and Baby owl 3″ (7 cm). If done with worsted weight yarn and an E hook Mama owl is 9″ (23 cm) while Baby owl measures 6 ” (15 cm).
The size of finished doll is determined by the size of hook and thickness of yarn that you use. Any yarn will work, just make sure you produce the dense fabric so the stuffing doesn’t show through.
Baby owl requires some basic crochet skills while Mama owl is more suited for a hooker looking to expand skills and techniques.
