I have decided to help a little with The Craft Clubs yarn bombing attempt. Do pop over and have a look. I can’t wait to see what they end up with.
Anyway, I decided that I wanted to make something a part from flowers and butterflies (if you want my daisy pattern its here), so I came up with this simple bird pattern.
I used a 3.5mm hook and DK yarn. You will also need a wool needle to sew the eye at the end.
The pattern is written using UK terminology
ss– slip stitch
Tr – Treble
ch – chain
st – stitch/stitches
Fancy giving them a go?
Round 3: chain 3 (counts as 1 tr). Work 1 tr into same space then 1tr into next st *2tr into next st, 1 tr into next st*. Repeat from *to* until the end. Join with ss to 3rd ch from the beginning of the round.
‘Round’ 5: ch 3 (counts as 1tr). Work 1tr into same st. *1 tr in next 3 st, 2tr in next st* repeat *to* 1 more time. 1tr into next 3 st Turn.
‘Round’ 6: ch 4 *miss one st, tr into next st, tr back into the st you’ve just missed, ch 1* repeat from *to* until last 2 st from round 5. Miss one st, tr into last stitch then tr into missed st. Fasten off.
In contrasting colour work first two rounds.
Fold bird in half, sew the contrasting colour circle on then sew up bird from the bottom of the tail to the beak end (leaving the top of the tail to the bottom of the tail open).
