We were on a roll designing with fur yarns! We got the idea for birds, while watching birds at our Frugal Haus bird feeder, right outside our office window. Blue yarn, of course was the best choice for us for the birds to knit. These are a nice soft toy for little hands! Toddlers can cuddle with these without harm . No buttons or beads here. Just fur yarn, pillow or toy stuffing, and yarn eyes and beak. Knitting needles, US # 10. Birds are about 4 inches tall.
Gauge not needed. These will come out cute every time!

The Frugal Knitting Haus was founded in July of 1989. It began around the innovative patterns of our founder, designing quick and simple patterns using up leftover scraps of yarn. Since her start, hundreds of knitting patterns have been designed and are available through the eight different books that are published by the Frugal Knitting Haus. The patterns are all different, but the design concept through the years hasn't changed. The name "frugal" is right on target, given our patterns that use the leftover scraps of yarn, bits and pieces of a skein or less that would otherwise not find a purpose. Whether it is a holiday decoration, a baby blanket or adult afghan, sweaters, bazaar items, toys, hats, slippers, gifts, or just plain useful items for use around the house, you will find it all here. We've put a large number of patterns on our site, to get you started with the "frugal" knitting concept that will surely clean those odds and ends of yarn out of the bottom of your knitting basket.View all patterns by designer (285) »
