I recently held an experiment on my crochet blog. I was having a lazy Saturday and wanted to crochet.  The deal was people could post pictures of things they wanted crochet pattern for and I would crochet them, share the pattern, then send the finished item to the person requesting it.

I had some strange requests, but my favorite one had to be these cute little birds.  Spring is coming and these little guys are just too cute.  They only take a few yards of yarn and less than 15 minutes to make.  So cute.  I'm still trying to decide what I could do with them - Any ideas?





And here's the free pattern:

Materials

  • Size G (4.25mm) crochet hook
  • Worsted weight yarn

Pattern
Chain 4, join with sl st to form ring

Round 1: Ch 2 (counts as first dc), 14 more dc into ring (15 sts)

Round 2: Ch 1 (counts as first sc). Into same stitch, work [dc, 5 trc, dc, sc].  (Bird head). Sc in each of next 10 sc (around  bird belly).  Into next stitch, work [sc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, sc] (bird tail). Sc in each of next 3 sc (bird back).

Fasten off, weave in ends.

Bird Beak


Join yellow yarn at base of your birds head. Ch 4, sl st back into the stitch where you joined your yarn.

Fasten off, weave in ends.

More details about my Saturday crochet experiment here... Enjoy!

Cute indeed! I'd gift these (or use them myself ;)hgbh) as a set of reusable makeup remover pads.

 Roll Eyes they remind me of rubber duckies. I would make some of these and sew them to plain white towels for a bathroom and maybe some for a bathroom wall hanging.


Awesome little projects. Hitting "rocks" for you! Grin

That sounds like such a cute idea.  Never thought to use buttons for eyes and make the birds into magnets.  Please share when you make them!
