Downloadable pattern to knit a set of jingly birds in chunky yarn. Suitable for beginner knitters, this pattern contains 'how to knit' instructions as well as illustrations and templates, and the finished birds look lovely hung up on a Christmas tree.
This is a very easy design suitable for even nervous knitters who are just starting out. Using only cast on, knit stitch (with no increasing or decreasing needed) and casting off, this is a lovely way to get hooked on knitting and would make a great pattern for a child or adult who wants to learn a new craft.
To knit these birds, you will need:
A pair of 4mm knitting needles
Chunky yarn in three colours (we use Hayfield Bonus Chunky and King Cole Chunky)
3 pairs of toy safety eyes (9mm) black
Felt for feet and beaks
3 little ball-shaped bells (optional)
Metal sewing needle
Once purchased, your PDF pattern will be instantly emailed to you so you can get knitting!
(Please note this product is a downloadable pattern NOT a kit)
Each jingly bird measures approximately 9cm by 13cm when finished.
