Bluebirds of Crappiness Pattern


All proceeds from sales of this pattern will go to Chicago-area food banks. (More than $4,000 as of March 2024!)

Things are crappy. Cheer yourself up by knitting some sweet little bluebirds! Then knit more for all your friends and essential workers!

This is a seamless, intermediate-level knitting pattern that calls for double-pointed needles and just a few yards of yarn.

For optional needle felted details, you’ll need some wool roving and a felting needle.

Techniques include short rows (wrap & turn), picking up and knitting stitches, and I-cord. You can see all of these techniques in action and knit a bluebird with me with this video!

A link to download the PDF pattern will arrive via email after purchase.

Psst: If you don’t knit, you can purchase a ready-made crappy bluebird hand-knitted by Anna!
