Lil Blue Tweet
I found inspiration to create this cute bird in the Lily Sugar 'n Cream Chicken Kitchen booklet. I purchased my copy at a Michaels Arts & Crafts Store.
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch
Ch = chain
2 sc tog = 2 single crochet together (single crochet decrease)
You will need to use a crochet hook H (5mm)
1st Round: Work 8 single crochet in the second chain from hook. Join with a slip stitch to the first single crochet.
2nd Round: Chain 1, Word 2 single crochet in each single crochet to the end. Join with a slip stitch to the first single crochet. 16 sc
Rounds 3 to 10: Work even, 1 sc in each sc. 16 sc
Join with a sl st to the first sc and fasten off. Hide the tail on the inside or wrong side.
You will make two wings:
Row 1: 1 sc in second ch from hook.
Row 2: Ch 1, 2 sc in sc. 2 sc
Row 3: Ch 1, 1 sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc. 3sc
Row 4: Ch 1, 2 sc in first sc, 2 sc
Row 5: Ch 1, 1 sc in each sc. 4 sc
Row 6: Ch 1, 2 sc tog, 2 sc tog.
Row 7: Ch 1, 2 sc tog, fasten off
Bird Legs: I recommend using a smaller hook than the H such as the E (3.5mm)
Row 1: 1 sl st in second ch from hook. 1 sl st in the next 2 chains. *Ch 3. 1 sl st in second ch from hook. 1 sl st in the next 2 chains. Anchor this last sl st with another sl st. Repeat from * once more. Fasten off.
