Parrots (page 70)
from Mini Knitted Safari
Finished Size: approximately 1.5"
Small amounts of Wool of the Andes Worsted in Caution Yellow, Red, Peapod Green, and Winter Night Blue. Beaks and feet were worked in Creme Brulee Yellow. The eyes on the green parrot are stitched with Brown Sugar Brown and on the red parrot are Coal Black (though I think I will rework them in a dark gray so they stand out against the blue better.
The pattern is worked as written, with the following exceptions.
Wings: Work Row 4 decrease as k2tog, ssk. Then work Row 6 decrease the same.
I needle felted all of the appendages onto the parrots, rather than sewing, and the eyes were worked as back stitches, shortened by needle felting.
