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.
