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

Brilliant pattern very quick and easy to knit and sew together. I made a total of 14, in different colours. A family of spiders!

One of the best knitted toy patterns ever! While a bit tricky in some of the tighter spots, the pattern is well written and easy to follow, great construction techniques. I like that it's knit pretty much "in one piece" with no seams, should be more durable in a child's hands (I did the legs in the round with conditional cast-on rather than as written to avoid seams and it worked very well). Perfect for the yarn left over from the blanket.
