The Flying Bird Pin Crochet Pattern is the second in my series of bird patterns.
Using 1/3 skein (approximately 30 yards) of light worsted weight yarn, F hook/3.75mm or equivalent (slightly smaller than recommended for yarn), the Flying Bird's body approx 2.75", Wings 2.25" Tail 1.5"
The other materials needed are a small amount of fiberfill or other stuffing, beads, round head pins or shiny black thread or thin yarn for eyes, a pin back, yarn needle and (optional) a small amount of embroidery thread for nose, neck markings, tail markings.
You might also using varying colors for the wings, head, or tail portions of the bird.
30 yards of DK weight
Long, long ago, far, far away, when the subway cost a quarter and the corner drugstore was also an ice cream parlor where a little girl sipped vanilla egg creams, her mother, who made her wonderful clothes, showed her how to crochet. Her father taught her how to solder and make a tuner.
