Celebrate spring with a bird motif!
Here’s a little round-up of free patterns for crocheted birds, in a range of styles to suit any taste in decor:
The three-dimensional Peace Dove [updated link], to crochet and stuff in two sizes, makes a unique accent for your table centerpiece.
- Country style calls for a cute Welcome Chicken sign with a heart motif, a cheerful way to greet your guests.
- The 1920s Filet Crochet Bird looks like a Swallow, although I’d prefer to think it’s a Bluebird! Very elegant, in any case.Remember, too, that a filet chart can be used for cross-stitch or petit-point, too, if that’s your preference in needlework crafts.
- Chubby little soft sculpture birds are quick to crochet with scraps of leftover yarn.
- Another nice bit of retro filet crochet is a Standing Crane, or is it a heron? or possibly a flamingo?
No matter… it’s lovely.
