Quite some time ago I first wrote and posted the pattern for the Cherry Chirp Bird. I love this pattern and think it came out really cute. Standing about 8 inches tall, 4 inches wide, and 8 inches long they are a quick knit and takes a mere 40gram of worsted weight cotton yarn + 15g in a contrasting color for beak, feet and eyes.
My friend tried to knit it up shortly after I published the pattern and informed me that the pattern was unknitable. Crap. So I pretty much black listed it, posted that it was full of errors on Ravelry as well as in the post about it. I ran it by my test knitter volunteers and with their help, notes, time, and feedback got this little guy in order. I did a final reknit and I think it’s finally good to go. Now to just sit down and rewrite it! I decided that today was the day, this past weekend, the weekend to do it. And instead of a new pattern, I’m re-releasing this little fledgling pattern into the world!
I’ve dug it up and put it all straight into the original post. But, if you’d like a tablet or printer friendly pdf version and to support this and other Craft Leftovers patterns finding their way back online… You can also support the Craft Leftovers pattern archive restoration project by purchasing the PDF in the KMR Shop OR on Ravelry.
And, something else that I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time, but not until the pattern was fixed, I’m making kits for this pattern available! They will be in the shop tomorrow afternoon. And because the Knit Honey Bunny and Cherry Chirp are buddies, I’m going to make a kit where you get supplies and the patterns for both!
Thank you to everyone who purchased a kit! They are all sold out.
Oh and more good things – I’m working on some other handmade goodies and new never sold on their own kits for the shop. There will be many new things popping into the shop this week, so make sure to check it out daily! And thank you so much to everyone who placed orders over the weekend and this past week! You seriously make this possible! Thank you!
And of course, if you make something with one of my patterns, just tag it (#craftleftovers). I love seeing what you’ve made with your unique leftovers!
