Head out to your local newsagents or supermarket and pick up issue 53, which this month comes with two fabulous pattern books, so you will not be short for crochet inspiration this spring. One of these books is this collection of 12 of our favourite British Birds!
Every bird has been carefully designed to closely reflect their feathered counterparts, such as this colourful Kingfisher, all the way down the tiny (but adorable) Goldcrest. Designer Sachiyo Ishii has also made sure to give each bird it’s own character and create a cute crocheted version that are ideal as decorative pieces in your home or toys to give to little ones*.
Every bird in the collection is crocheted using one of our favourite yarns – Stylecraft Special DK! This was a great yarn to use to capture these 12 beautiful birds, as it has such versatility and colour range that really allows the birds to sing (get it?).
We’ve also teamed up with our friends at Deramores to offer Crochet Now readers 20% off all Stylecraft ranges until 7th May 2020! Use the code STYLE20 to make a saving, including on all the yarn you need to crochet this adorable collection!
Issue 53 is available to buy from your local supermarket, newsagent and craft store from Thursday 27th February, or you can order your copy online now, grab yours from Deramores, or why not treat yourself to a subscription and never miss an issue again?
*If you intend to give these toys to children, please ensure no small parts are used during assembly (i.e. no beads or wires)
