This pattern set includes full instructions for making a crocheted rainbow lorikeet. I have included excellent step by step photos. The lorikeet is worked in 8ply worsted weight yarn, with a 3.5/4mm (E4/ G6) hook. The finished bird is about 23cm/9½ in from his/her tip of head to tail. Once you have mastered the shape, experiment with different colours.

Instructions are provided in both Australian/ English and American terms. Patterns will be emailed to you in a pdf format. There are no shipping costs. Remember I am real Aussie bird and may be asleep while you are awake having fun on etsy.

The Rainbow Lorikeet is a small parrot native to Australia and is incredibly colourful. Colours to try when making rainbow lorikeets include yellow, green, orange, blue and red. They have red beaks and red eyes. Rainbow lorikeets are found all over the north-east of Australia. Their habitat ranges from forests of all sorts (heathlands, bush, rainforest) coastal or inland, to any area including urban areas that have suitable trees - (including my back deck!) They are normally found in flocks and make a heck of a racket at feeding time. “move over will ya mate so I can have some seed as well?" "crikey mate I was after that bit"

I have attempted to achieve the look of the rainbow lorikeet without getting too complicated with the pattern. I hope you have fun making these. The ones pictured are visitors to my veranda. They like modelling for my patterns.

All designs are fair dinkum original and are protected by copyright. Please do not reproduce my patterns or images by any means. While I am happy for you to make these for personal use, gifts and limited charity fundraising, you can not resell the pattern or sell items made from the pattern. (c)crochetroo 2007
