Cute Little Bluebird

Grace is constantly searching Ravelry for interesting patterns - I'm sure she's supposed to be revising for her exams!  The other day she spotted this pattern for a cute little bluebird.  I thought I would knit it up for her as a surprise. 

The pattern is by Berroco and is available free here.  The bird is only about 3 inches tall.  I used aran weight yarn but the pattern calls for worsted weight yarn so should result in a smaller bird. 

I made the beak of my bird shorter and fatter than the pattern because when I originally knitted it up, it didn't look right.  The new beak fits just perfectly.  The body is knitted in the round - so no seams.  The wings and tail follow the same pattern.  Quite quick to knit and very cute. 


  1. How sweet. Wish I could knit better and I'd have a flock. A great surprise, she will love it.

  2. I have this pattern stored away, looks great knitted up :-)
