Tiny Perching Pigeon


This guy and all of his friends are guilty of LWC, loitering while cute!

And I have a special announcement today: this will soon be a free pattern on the Mochimochi blog! It’s about time I made a free Tiny pattern, and since June is a month of knitting in public, I hope flocks of Tiny Perching Pigeons will soon be hopping off of everyone’s needles and onto the nearest tree branch, park bench, or neighbor’s dog’s tail. (I just want to see that last one once!)

The idea for the Tiny Perching Pigeon comes out of a project that I’m planning with Stitch London next month during my trip to the UK. I thought pigeons were the perfect thing to bring to London from New York, so I’m going to get together with the Stitch Londoners on June 21st for a pigeon-making party and a photo shoot out in a public place! If you’re in the London area, please join us! I’ll post the official details soon.

Check back for the free pattern in the next week or so!

  1. oh he is SO cute! cute and free, hooray! :D
    and i love that you are taking pigeons from new york to london as i imagine they got here via the reverse of that route in the first place… anyone know if that’s true?

  2. I was just about to say I’d sell my SOUL for this pattern! But I wont have to!

    Mine will likely be a macro pigeon but OMG I can’t wait!

  4. Your pigeon is adorable. I learned about Stitch London from your blog and am hard at work on my mini-me. Thanks for your great blog!

  5. Love the little pigeon!! I will be waiting with my needles and yarn for the pattern to be released!!! Thanks for sharing.

  6. Thanks for the nice comments, everyone! I hope to see tons of colorful pigeons everywhere soon!

    Seanna Lea – you’re right, those are pipe cleaners for perch-able feet. It’s the first time I’ve used them in a toy, but I think they work well in this case.

  7. How cute!
