Soft Owl Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Oct 19, 2019



My fellow crocheters! If you have never worked with Bernat Tiny Baby Blanket Yarn you should try: it's one of the softest yarns I've ever used.


This yarn is perfect to crochet a velvety and lightweight blanket for your little ones or yourself...and why not!!! A great movie night on the couch deserves a great granny square throw!


When I bought this yarn I was looking for something soft to crochet the "perfect crib cuddle toy", and this just felt like "pure softness".


Among the different colors available, I opted for pastel tones (Clear Sky and Tea Rose), as I thought they would be great for both girls and boys. Plus they match so lovely!


Add a little bit of crocheting, imagination and....ta-daaa: here's the ultimate soft friend for your baby's night time!





Soft as a cloud...check

Colorful...check

Super safe...check

It makes a great crib toy!








Let's have some fun and crochet along!
