Off my needles : Birdies

Toys and stuffed friends are such a joy to knit.  The gauge doesn't really matter and you can use up scraps of yarn from your stash.  Below is a flock of birds I made for a friend:
You can find the pattern for these birdies here.  I added wings instead of tails and stitched patches of fabric on their fronts.  If you're interested in toy patterns, here are some great sites with lots of oh-so sweet options:  Spud & Chloe + The Purl Bee + Etsy.
Have fun hunting down some cuties and happy knitting!  xoxo, Karen


  1. Aw! They are so adorable. I love they're little feet. I so could not do that, they're awesome!
