Knit your own little birds from this PDF knitting pattern of my original design. Knit Lovebirds, Easter Chicks or Bird Mascots. Knit a branch full in festive colors or knit enough to fill a small woodland. So many ideas from just one pattern.

I originally knitted one of these and a nest for a 3 year old boy as an Easter present. He liked to take the small bird on an adventure around the garden, then tuck it into its nest for a quick nap before setting out on another excursion. The pattern for the nest is free on my blog
