BENJY THE BLUEBIRD TOY KNITTING PATTERNS
This sweet little bird is a quick knit, and doesn’t use much yarn so is super for a stash-busting project.
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the bluebird, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 4 pages and written in English.
TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams. The bird’s head, body and eyes are all knitted in one piece (the eyes are knitted bobbles and instructions on how to knit a bobble are included in the pattern), and the beak, feet and wings are knitted separately and sewn in place. The wing pattern incorporates a three needle bind off.
YARN, NEEDLES AND NOTIONS INCLUDE:
- A pair of straight 3.75mm knitting needles (US 5)
- DK yarn (double knitting or light worsted weight) in blue, white and yellow; less than 30g in each colour
- Toy filling
- The pupils are small black beads
