Free Crochet Patterns for Birds

Since the beginning of time birds have always fascinated humans, who envied their freedom in flight. Humans ascribe human qualities to particular birds. The owl symbolizes wisdom, the bluebird happiness, et cetera. An obscure French nature film about penguins, “March of the Penguins”, was a surprise smash hit at cinemas worldwide. Some people take a bird as a mascot. People simply like birds, whether they keep birds as pets, a bird table in their garden, or do bird watching. Surprising as it might seem, crochet patterns do exist for birds. There are many free crochet bird patterns available on the Internet. Whether you are looking for a pattern for a flamingo, a turkey or an owl, you can find what you need on the Internet.

Crochet Pattern Central (CPC) is a large, easily navigable crochet-pattern link directory, which has a whole section devoted to birds. Alta M Flamingo is a beautiful amigurumi flamingo. Bride and Groom Lovebirds could make a super gift to the newly weds or a unique wedding cake topper, and permanent keepsake or memento of the special day. CPC has links to patterns for farmyard birds, such as chickens, ducks and turkeys, familiar birds such as owls, exotic birds, such as parakeets, galahs and kiwis, many penguins and even a dodo. CPC also has links to bird themed items, including Red Angry Bird Toilet Paper Cozy, Owl Sachet, Peacock Finger Puppet, and a Penguin Bowling Set. There are patterns for some beautiful items at CPC and crocheters will spend a happy time browsing through the links, although there are such beautiful patterns that you may spend a great deal of crocheting time just browsing.

Crochet pattern designers, bloggers and other crochet web pages make free crochet patterns available on their web sites. Teri Crews’ has a pretty bluebird pattern. Domestik Goddess has the 3D peace doves, filet crochet crane and swallow, a welcome chicken, and soft sculpture birds.

Large yarn manufacturers also offer free patterns on their web sites. Lion Brand Yarn’s web site has the delightful pom pom birds, the Holiday dove ornament, and the Amigurumi Momma and baby birds in a nest among other super bird patterns. Red Heart Yarns have a wonderful pattern for blackbirds baked in a pie, and the Bird Up Pillow, A bird table set, an owl mug wrap, a bird ornament and bird and flower appliqués.

Ravelry is a large knitting and crochet community, which allows members access to free patterns. You only have to register an e-mail address to join Ravelry and it is worth doing so since you will find patterns at Ravelry that you will not find elsewhere. Ravelry has 200+ free crochet bird patterns, including the beautiful filet crochet bird cage doily, the white gold shawl with birds, the charming baby’s wooly owl hat, the gorgeous songbird square among enough stuffed birds and bird related items to please any bird lover’s heart. Do head over to Ravelry and look, their thumbnail photographs make browsing through the patterns easy and fun and mean that you do not have to waste time clicking through to patterns that do not meet your aesthetic or other requirements.
