Thiago the Parrot Free Crochet Pattern



I know my friends, it's only Tuesday, and the way to the weekend seems still too long...

...but don't worry, I've designed something for you that I'm sure is going to brighten up your day - here's my cute THIAGO the PARROT!!


With its bright colors and his big smiling eyes, this crocheted Parrot is just too fun not to make, don't you think? No to mention the size of the finished amigurumi...just perfect for your kids to play with or just hug and cuddle!


Unlike most of the designs I share here on my blog, this project is most suitable for INTERMEDIATE crocheters. The Beak and the Feet sections especially are a bit more complex to make. So, if you are a new-by or feel visual help is needed, I strongly suggest you to head over my Etsy page to get the complete version of the pattern!!!


Thiago is worked with the gorgeous and super soft Lion Brand Pound of Love.

Choose your favorite colors and create your very own Thiago the Parrot!
