A knit and felt bird design, a PDF-format.
A how-to-knit and then felt a feathered little friend. This is not a needle felting pattern. Needle felting is used for embellishing only.
Knit and embellish a woolly bird to look like a robin, a cardinal, or a chickadee. Instructions are included to make all three birds. Each bird measures, after felting in your washing machine, about 3-1/2 inches wide by 4-1/2 inches high. How about a calico bird with purple wings and a polka dotted tail? The pattern is designed so you can create your own bird.
The pattern gives direction for knitting and felting using worsted weight yarns and introduces simple needle felting techniques.
Skill Level: Intermediate, requires double point needle experience
Materials: worsted weight 100% wool yarns, size 10.5 double point needles, fiberfill, poly-pellets, wool roving, all-purpose felting needle
