I have to admit that I don’t really see too many tiny bird amigurumi patterns these days whilst the craze for afghans and cowls continues, so here is a sweet little guy who just happened to turn up in-between my usual projects.He’s only a couple of iches tall, so if you don’t really get along with using a small hook just use a hook that feels comfortable for you. Life’s too short right?
Enjoy making sweet Rolo, or even a flock of Rolos? Just don’t forget to come back to show off your own little bird creations!
