Free Crochet Bird Pattern – 3rd Project

The day continues with the third project of “my big crochet idea“: a free crochet pattern for birds! Inspired by Kathleen’s post: “I’d love to see these cute little birds!! got to work as soon as I saw the picture.

After three tries, I finally crocheted what I deemed to be a good bird shape.  How cute are they?!  So  adorable. They take only minutes to make and a few yards of yarn.

    I love these little birdies. I’m just learning and it went really quick (after I had to start over once) I posted my result on my blog with a link back to you. Awesome stuff.
