Meet Laura, an adorable little pigeon (columba trocaz) from the Madeira Islands (Portugal). Laura spent her entire life in the Laurissilva forest with her family, but she’s now ready to explore the vast world and photograph as many wonders as she can.
Laura grabbed her favourite instant camera, and her traditional beanie hat knitted by her grandma, to always remember where she came from. Are you ready to go on an adventure with Laura?!

The pattern is written in U.S. terminology. The main part of this project is worked in rounds so you might want to use a stitch marker to mark the end of each round. There is no specific gauge for this project, just try to keep it tight and even throughout each piece. Laura the Pigeon measures approx. 17cm (7in), when using the same yarn/tools indicated below.

Skill Level: Begginer/Intermediate (there’s a lot of sewing involved)
