My first crochet project – Ernesto the Bird!
I finally gave in and tried to learn crochet (like I can make four different stitches). My first project is an amigurumi bird, who my friend named Ernesto. It was kinda fun and I will likely make more animals as time allows.
Moving on to the details.
Hook – 4.5mm Clover Amour
Pattern – Jay the Bird (Ravelry pattern here) from Stacey Trock. I actually got this pattern as part of her Woodland Animals class of Craftsy. I previously started another “Learn to Crochet” type class but didn’t really like how the instructor taught. I viewed some of Woodland Animals class during Craftsy Unlimited’s free weekend (I didn’t subscribe to Craftsy Unlimited though) and really like Stacey Trock. The class includes about four patterns/animals. The individual pattern is $5.00 US on Ravelry.
Yarn – All of the yarn used is Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice, which is an aran weight acrylic yarn. The colorway for the bird’s body is Scarlet and the beak is Mustard.
I stuffed the bird with poly-fil and attached the safety eyes. My project page on Rav is here.
