About this book

Twitching to knit? Get off to a flying start with this book, which contains all the instructions you need to bring a flock of characterful birds to life. With full, clear patterns for both quick and more involved projects, you will find a little flying friend inside. Great for gifts or perching as decorations, these quirky birds are fantastic fun to make and display, whatever your knitting experience.

Knitted Birds: Over 30 Fun Feathered Friends for You to Knit also includes step by step photographs and instructions for techniques such as sewing up, stuffing, and creating legs that will let your birds stand, perch or even cling to your finger.

"A parliament of owls, a gaggle of geese, an unkindness of ravens and riot of robins. Nicky Fijalkowska has captured the unique characters of each of these groups of bird perfectly, and more besides. The Sussex-based designer is a keen bird-watcher. Her love of our feathered friends shows in the detail in each pattern. These aren't toys. Rather, they're ornaments for the house, decorations for birdfeeders and gardens and can be adapted into christmas decorations. A variety of skills are needed to complete the projects. Crochet, bead work and some intricate stitching. But the book explains everything with clear photos and text that's easy to follow and jargon free"
