“Look, I’m a bird! Your (grand)children can pretend the are parrots, seagulls, or blackbirds when they wear this funny hat. They can open or close the ‘real’ beak and even put leaves or twigs in it. So it’s a hat and also a toy!
But not only children can use their fantasy with this hat. The knitter can too. This pattern means to inspire you to create your own feathered friend. You can knit a Blackbird or a Jailbird, like shown in the pictures. But what about making your own Bird of Paradise, Seagull of even Love Bird?
Twitter is a perfect hat for creative birdlovers (and who doesn’t love birds?).
The pattern is fully testknitted. It’s considered an quite easy hat to knit. The earflaps (or ‘wings’) are knit in ribbed short row wedges. The ‘beak’ is in fact a double brim.
