The knitting pattern for my blue tits is in issue 118 of Let’s Knit magazine – if you’ve got your hands on a copy of my book Knitted Birds, you’ll know that there’s a blue tit pattern in there, too. Well, these are a little bit different to the original, like a blue tit 2.0! They have a different shape, and the markings are all made with intarsia knitting rather than embroidery. Hope you enjoy making them!
Hands up, who’d like to knit a cuddly, colourful parrot? I’ve just added the pattern for this cute pair to my Etsy shop and Ravelry. They are nice, easy knit, flat on a pair of 4mm knitting needles. I used Stylecraft Special DK but you can use the DK yarn of your choice – they are a very colourful way to do a bit of stash busting!
