Pretty Parakeet

August 2012
worsted yarn from your stash!
Worsted (9 wpi) ?
3.5 mm (E)
This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

Customize this perky little ami bird to recreate your favorite feathered friend, or just follow these directions to make yourself a super-low-maintenance pet. The feet are constructed around pipe cleaners, allowing you to pose and perch your parakeet however—and wherever—you like.

The parakeet’s head and body are worked in the round. The feathers are made using crocodile stitch; the pattern includes both written directions and charts for this. Lots of photos and tips, too!
