A full written pattern for a cute bird motif, including stitch abbreviations.
UK or US crochet terms
~ Crochet Chart Included ~
Basic stitches used, but can be a little fiddly, especially on the smaller sized birds.
This motif can be made in any yarn weight, only a few yards are needs for each bird. I recommend using a hook size one or two sizes smaller than required for your yarn. Or you can also hold two or more strands of yarn together to make different sizes of bird.
