Eyes:

  1. Embroider the eyes with white and black.
  2. Do the black circle in the middle first then surround it with white. Make sure that the black is more towards the center of the face. Then surround the entire eye with black.
  3. The eyebrows are red so I used red yarn. It would have been nice to have a slightly darker red. The one I used is a little too bright for my liking. Make sure that they are slanted so he looks angry.

Beak:

  1. Pick up 10 stitches where the beak should be. I did the beak differently than I did for the Red Bird. I was just trying this method out to see if it would be easier/better. It turned out to be ok. This time I used gold for the beak because he is already yellow.
  2. 1sc in each st. For 2 rows. [10]
  3. (1sc in first 3st. Sc2tog.) Repeat around. [8]
  4. Sc2tog until gap is small enough to sew closed. Remember to stuff before you sew the gap.
  5. F.O.

Feathers on head:

  1. Attach black yarn to the top center of the head. Chain 10. Then make a slip stitch into the same spot you had attached the yarn.
  2. Make a slip stitch with an area right behind the first feather. Chain 8. Then make a slip stitch with where you started the second feather.
  3. Make a slip stitch with another area right behind the second feather. Chain 8. Then make a slip stitch with where you started the third feather.
  4. For the last feather do the same as with the others but do a chain 6 instead.
  5. F.O.
