Nesting Rainbow Owls

Here’s a set of wide-eyed Rainbow Owls and a mossy nest for them to snuggle up in. Of course you don’t have to stick with the rainbow theme. These little guys would look good in any color combinations. The owls and the leaves that decorate the nest are made with light worsted weight/DK yarn (worsted weight would work just as well) while the nest itself is crocheted up in lightening fast time with super bulky yarn. I like the contrast between the two different weights of yarn. The heavy yarn looks kind of like bark so the nest really did end up looking ย like it was straight out of the forest. I think you’ll agree this family of owls look very comfy in there!


I’ve nicknamed the green owl Kevin as he definitely enjoys being home alone!

Have fun with this pattern but please don’t re-publish itย in any way.ย I am happy for you to make and sell the finished articles from both my free and paid for patterns. A credit for Moji-Moji Design as the pattern creator would make me very happy and a link to my blog or my Ravelry shop (listed in the sidebar >) would be much appreciated!

  1. where is the pattern

    • If you click on the button that says ‘download’ you should be able to access it. A few people have some technical troubles with this – for reasons I haven’t quite worked out yet – so if that is the case for you let me know and I’ll email you a copy instead.

      • Hallo, ik tracht in te loggen en de leuke uiltjes te downloaden, krijg melding dat ik geen toegang heb, want niet uitgenodigd. ๐Ÿ™

  2. I’ve tried to get your pattern but it wont let me download …it says website not known …could you help me please as I’d love to make him for a new born xx thankyou

    • I just emailed you a copy ๐Ÿ™‚ No idea why the website is unknown in this case! Anyway, I hope you have fun hooking them up ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Hello, can you clarify Round 1 in the Head and body section please? I canโ€™t understand what is trying to be achieved here. Thanks

    • Hi Grace, on round 1 you have to crochet around both sides of the foundation chain so that your first round makes more of an oval than a circle. On the first side you crochet into the back loops only of the foundation chain, then turn the work 180 degrees and crochet down the leftover front loops on the opposite side. I have a little photo tutorial for this. If you would like me to email you a copy just let me know.

  4. I would have loved to have made the nesting owls but when I clicked on the UK download it said the site wasn’t secure.. ๐Ÿ™

    • It is completely secure and hosted by Box, which is a very reputable file sharing platform. My download is a simple PDF file and so I don’t know why you got that message, sorry about that. I can email you a copy if you would prefer. Let me know if you do and I’ll get one sent off to you.

  5. Can you email me a copy of the pattern? It will not download for me.
