Who doesn’t dream of making their own crochet animal toy? Stuffed toy-making can be done from a few methods. Besides sewing, AMIGURUMI (knit or crochet animal) is one of the most popular methods.

When I saw Mei Li’s blog (AmiguruMEI) for the first time, my jaw dropped. When I got to know that she designed her amigurumi doll, I knew I needed to know her more and introduce her to you. Visit her blog (AmuguruMEI), and you will know that I am not joking or exaggerating my statement.

Similar to her other amigurumi animals, Mr. Murasaki, the crochet owl has a unique character, and I love his sleepy look.

This crochet owl is easy and quick to crochet, all you need are some yarns, a crochet hook, pins, a tapestry needle, and scissors. Not forgetting some black thread, brad pins, and felt to give it some expressions.

Just like all, if not, most amigurumi crochet animals, the body of Mr. Murasaki is done by crocheting in continuous spiral rounds, it is then stuffed with poly-fill to give it a round puffy body. Then, follow the crochet patterns to complete the ears, wings and eyes. Once all parts are done, assemble them by sewing with a tapestry needle. Complete this cute crochet owl by giving it a nice yellow beak.

For attaching the eyes, wings, feather details, and mouth, it just says to attach them to the body, not what row I would add it too. Other than that the pattern is awsome!

I’m confused…understandable since this is a new venture for me! Round 2 ends with 12 stitches but Round 3 tells me to (inc, sc 1) around and then end up with 18. If I inc, that’s 2 stitches then sc 1, that’s another stitch. That means in the first two stitches of the original 12 stitches, I already have 3 stitches! How will that row equal 18 when I’m finished?

Maybe you are new in this, let me explained. When the instruction says "(inc, sc 1) around" it literally means that you will be doing (inc, sc 1) repeatedly until you completed that round. so, the instruction is telling you to increase 1 st in every 2 sts to become 3 sts, and you will be doing this for 6 repeats, so 3 x 6 will give you 18 sts in total for round 3.
