My husband and I host a semi-regular monthly dungeons and dragons group. We’ve come across owlbears numerous times in campaigns. I wanted to make my own chibi version. He measures approximately 6 inches tall and was done with worsted weight yarn and a 3.75 mm hook.

DO NOT SELL ITEMS MADE FROM THIS PATTERN. The owlbear character belongs to Wizards of the Coast and this pattern is for personal use only to show off your love for Dungeons and Dragons.
