This is my book, Knitted Birds! It contains over 30 knitting patterns and instructions for all kinds of birds, along with information on the materials, tools and techniques you'll need. Whether you want to make a robin to perch on your Christmas tree, an owl to overlook your breakfast nook, or a whole family of ducks to decorate your desk, these beautiful birds are fun to make and display, whether you are a beginner or a more experienced knitter.
All birds are knitted flat on a single pair of needles. There's no knitting in the round or using four needles!
Patterns include: a family of mallard ducks and ducklings, song thrush, blue tit, canada goose, blackbirds, mute swan and cygnets, a family of barn owls, avocet, lapwing, puffin, collared dove, magpie, oystercatcher, osprey, kingfishers, hoopoe, pheasant, snowy owls, woodpecker, robin, sparrow, seagull, raven and tufted duck. There's also patterns for nests and eggs!
Some birds have wire legs, and detailed instructions are included on how to make these, along with templates for beaks.

I'm not a knitter, it's a gift for my Mum but had clear instructions and lovely pictures. My children have already put in requests and mum can pass on her love of garden birds with these cuties once she has knit them!
Son! Son! Son! Son! Son!
I bought this book as a present for my Mum, who is a keen knitter. It is absolutely beautiful, a joyous book. Not only does it have the knitting patterns, it is full of information about birds, and I now know how to tell male and female kingfishers apart.The photos of the final products are really creative and funny. There's even a pattern for a mullet! Thanks Nicky.
Received this book as described. I have not yet knitted any of the birds’ patterns yet. I was not aware that many of the patterns require felt as part of the pattern of these birds. A bit disappointed how much felt is used to get the smallest or larger details unique for each bird. I wonder what could be used instead of the felt? I do not know the answerTo this question. What I really loved about the book is that there are many step by step photos of what needs to be done. For a beginner/intermediate ... I love the step by step photos! At this point, I can not comment on the knitting patterns as I have not made any yet, but when I do, I will will add that to this to review. Great quality book and great customer service!!
