Crows are very clever birds, which may explain why they are so interesting and a bit frightening. This crow doesn’t look so smart and at only 6” tall he doesn’t seem too menacing either. Nevertheless, he would make a great Halloween decoration or a gift for a bird loving kid.

For an ADVENTUROUS BEGINNER knitter, because although the pattern does contain short row shaping it is fully explained in the pattern, if you can knit flat and in the round on double pointed needles, you can knit Big Crow.
