Easy Plush Owl Knitting Pattern

May 15, 2018

This Easy Plush Owl Knitting Pattern is perfect for beginners and it makes a great gift!

Easy Plush Owl Knitting Pattern by Gina Michele

Knitting patterns for plush animals are pretty hard to come by (crochet animal patterns are much more abundant) and the few patterns that are available are usually not beginner- friendly. This Easy Plush Owl Knitting Pattern is knit flat on straight needles and there’s a minimum amount of increasing/decreasing. If you know the basics of knitting, you’ll be able to make this guy!

This knit owl is great for hugging and since there’s no beaded eyes, it’s perfect for little ones of any age.

Happy knitting!
