This chubby little robin makes a cute festive toy or hanging decoration. Designed by Amanda Berry @fluffandfuzz, the robin is knitted in acrylic DK yarns. The robin’s body and wings are worked flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight single pointed knitting needles, not in the round. The legs are i-cord tubes worked on two DPNs. The pattern incorporates intarsia colour-work to make the robin’s red breast.
