Lacy Owl Free Crochet Amigurumi Pattern

I created this pattern as a gift for a dear friend who was expecting a baby girl. My friend really loves owls, so I knew I’m going to make her an amigurumi owl.
This pattern is easy and great for beginners. I also added some lace in the wings, I wanted to create some texture and color change, to make the owl more interesting and appealing for the baby.
