Ahhhh, Owen! He’s like me, a night owl! Created for my family room, this guy is a perfect addition to my woodland themed holiday decor. Paired with Lion Brand Go For Faux, he’s as soft as they come! He’s cute, he’s huggable, and he’s oh so lovable! Crochet one just like him today for either yourself, someone you love (or that loves owls), or to sell. Enjoy this free owl amigurumi crochet pattern.
