Crochet Occamy

Ever since seeing Fantastic Beasts, I’ve seen an array of crocheted Bowtruckles and Nifflers out on the Internet, but never an Occamy. Until now, however!


Isn’t it adorable?


I crocheted it around a pipe cleaner, which simultaneously provided a wire to make it pose-able, and the stuffing in the form of the fluff.


I teased out the threads on the crest and tail to see what it’d look like, and I like the effect.


Cute little wings. You can see the different colours in them in this picture.



BB8 is still slightly unsure of the intentions of our new friend.

While I was crocheting the Occamy, I wrote a pattern for it. If I get more requests, I may write up and post the pattern here. I’m also taking name suggestions, as I don’t think we got any of the names of Newt’s Occamys. (Is it Occamies for plural?)

Anyways, see ya!

    I would love to try this. I think as more of the movies come out we may see more interest. Let me know if you do post it.

      You’re in luck Frances – I posted a two-part pattern in late April. I can’t wait to see

        Apologies! I can’t wait to see your Occamy! 😊

    That’s amazing! I’d go with Occamies too 😊

    I’ve never seen a crochet Occamy either – I’m so happy that one exists in the world! It was a great idea to crochet it around a pipe cleaner – it looks so detailed and lifelike. The threads add a really nice touch! If you do decide to post the pattern, I would love to try and crochet an Occamy – I think you did an amazing job! 😀

    Im with you, I’m inclined to guess “Occamies” for the plural…there should be a Harry Potter grammar style guide. 🙂

      Thank you, I’d love to see your interpretation! There should be a Potter grammar guide, I agree. 😀
