The rainbow lorikeet (Trichoglossus moluccanus) is a species of parrot found in Australia. It is common along the eastern seaboard, from northern Queensland to South Australia and Tasmania.

This pattern is written in English and uses US crochet terms. Also the German version is available for download.

This listing is for an extensive PDF file which contains full instructions for crocheting and finishing off a Rainbow Lorikeet. Once paid for it is available for you to instantly download.

The file is 32 pages long and contains 63 detailed step-by-step photographs along with full pattern instructions and tips for crocheting, sewing and finishing neatly. In addition to textual instructions, there are also crochet charts.

Please note that this project is not a quick or simple crochet. It takes a lot of time to crochet and finish the lorikeet and a lot of time is spent on the finishing off. There are lots of separate pieces which require sewing. That said this PDF file will give you all of the information that you need to crochet the Rainbow Lorikeet.
