This little friend is knitted in the round using sport-weight yarn on smaller-than-recommended needles to create a tight fabric.
The beak and feet use i-cord and the wings are really tiny sock toes, so no wrong side could show for our fair-weather friend. While our friend is designed to look familiar to British and American robins (he takes his style from both sides of the pond), he could be a bluebird of happiness or even sport dashing stripes, the possibilities for your friend’s style are endless.
