Well, I'm still feeling pretty crappy and I've been on a crochet kick so I decided to whip up another little guy :) This is Billy the Cheeky Robin!
Milbert, I just did a little modifying. I pretty much combined the Blue Bird pattern and the Raccoon pattern from the Amigurumi Woodland Animals Class. I worked all of the increases according to the bird pattern and then followed the raccoon pattern for the color change on the tummy. I started to change colors on row 15 and didn't go back to solid brown until row 29.
I'm incredibly excited at how well this guy came out! The blue bird pattern is really the perfect body shape for a robin. Think of all the other types of birds you could make just by changing the colors like this using this simple pattern!
I'm so glad I had the notion to try this out and that I already had the right colors on hand :) This is a great little pattern to have around and it goes together really quick (it took me about 2 hours total). So, yet another nice thing that came out of my illness :)
