Introduction
Just in time for Easter, you can make cute little baby birds or chicks! These guys are perfect for stuffing Easter baskets or just putting on your desk at work.
Materials List
* A small amount of yellow (chick) or blue (baby bird) yarn, double-knitting weight* A very small amount of black yarn, same weight as above* A small amount of polyester stuffing
Created by Neevia docuPrinter Pro v6.3
 
* 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.
Finished Size
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
Gauge is not used in this pattern.
otes
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.
Abbreviations used:

invdec: invisible decrease
The Pattern
Making the body:
 
Make a ring, and work 6 sc into the ring. (6 st)
reated by Neevia docuPrinter Pro v6.3
 
Rnd 1: 2 sc in each st around. (12)Rnd 2: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next st) 6 times. (18)Rnds 3-6: inc 3 times evenly. (30 st at the end of rnd 6)Rnds 7-8: work even. (30)Rnds 9-12: invdec 3 times evenly. (18 st at the end of rnd 12)
Rnd 13: (invdec over next 2 st, sc in next st) 6 times. (12)At this point, cut the yarn about 20 cm from your work, and pull the loop on your crochet hook  bigger and bigger until the tail of the yarn comes through and you're left with a single strandcoming out of your work.Cut a 2" length of pipe cleaner and fold it in half; this will be your beak. Insert the two ends between rounds 7 and 8, two posts apart. Push the beak in until it's of the desired size, then twistthe ends together inside so they're secure. Cut off any excess pipe cleaner.With the tapestry needle and the black yarn, embroider a French knot for each eye, using the photo as a guide to placement. Don't forget to use a dab of craft glue on each French knot to holdit together, or it is likely to unravel.
Making and inserting the feet:
 This part of the pattern is the most difficult to describe, so I've drawn a diagram:
The long and short of it is: use the remaining pipe cleaner to fashion two three-toed birds' feet,with the leg sticking upright, using the photo as a guide to the shape of the feet.
