amigurumi, animal

Free pattern: parrot

Small projects are my favorite projects! I love making things you can finish within 1 evening or less :). So here’s a little bird. It’s so quick to make you can easily make a whole flock!

You can use any yarn, as long as you use the right hook size. Here is how to find the right hook size for your yarn. I used cotton yarn and a 2,5mm hook and my parrot is 5cm/2 inch.

Materials

I made a blue and a green quaker parrot, so I used these colors, but you can use different colors to make other kinds of birds:
– head-color: light grey
– body-color: blue or green
– eye-color: black
– beak-color: orange
– feet-color: dark grey

Abbrevations

– sc – single crochet
– inc – increase (sc2 in one stitch)
– dinc – double increase (sc3 in one stitch)
– dec – decrease (go from 2 stitches to one)
