Knit a trio of festive birdies in winter hats to decorate your home for the holidays.

These chubby birdies make a fun and colourful alternative to a boring bauble!

You can make a birdie with or without a hat, and two hat styles are included… a Santa style sorting hat and a bobble hat. I used ready made pompoms to decorate my hats, but you can make a little pompom using yarn instead if you wish.

For the eyes I used small black buttons on top of white felt fabric circles, but you can use toy safety eyes, boggly eyes, stick on eyes, or embroider in yarn.

The bird baubles and hats knitted flat on straight needles.

YOU WILL NEED:

  • A pair of straight 3.5mm knitting needles (US 4)
  • DK (double knitting, light worsted weight yarns); Less than 25g in each colour
  • Buttons for eyes
  • Toy filling
