You don't need much yarn for this owl, which makes it a great project to use up any scrap yarn. It doesn't include any complicated stitches or techniques, but the small details can be a bit fiddly to make.
These small monsters are crocheted around a rattle made of a plastic egg from a Kinder Surprise chocolate egg filled with small glass beads. But you can always use fiberfill to stuff the body. Long antennae are perfect for grabbing with small hands.
When making a closed amigurumi piece there will be a little hole left after finishing the last round. Today I will show how to close up that hole nice and neatly by picking up the front loops of all the remaining stitches and pulling the hole tightly closed.
In this post I will show how to sew flat pieces to a closed piece, depending on whether you want them to stand up, like teddy ears or straight bunny ears, or lay flat against the closed piece, like floppy bunny ears or arms.
