* 2.50 mm crochet hook* Tapestry needle
* 1 pipe cleaner, orange (chick) or yellow (baby bird)It doesn't really matter what type of yarn you use or what size hook you use; it will just changethe size of the finished bird. I would suggest you use whatever yarn you can find, and use thesmallest hook that you have that won't split the yarn when you work with it. The bird in the picture was made with 100% acrylic DK yarn and a 2.50 mm crochet hook, and stands about 1-1/2 inches tall.
Again, the finished size depends on the type of yarn and hook you use. It will be about 1-1/2 to 2 inchestall.
Gauge is not used in this pattern.
Please note that this bird is intended to be enjoyed by adults and older children only. Becausethere may be sharp ends on the pipe cleaners, I would avoid giving it to a child under three.(Also, if your kids are anything like mine is, they'll be quite good at pulling its little eyes out.)This bird is worked in spiral rounds, so do not join at the end of each round. Use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of each round.
