Notes

I used AuroraFlora’s mods and added a little ribbon bow. I knit the beak, but I thought the one in the pattern directions was too big, so I started it with 6 stitches and did the decreases like the wings/tail.

I went down 1 needle size from what I’d normally use for this yarn, but I should have probably gone down another size or 2, as the stuffing peeks through more than I’d like.
