Angry Birds, The Red Bird
The Red Bird from Angry Birds
I haven't done any crocheting since I learn to knit, aside from one easy project. I have never followed a pattern, cold. But my grandson asked me if I could make him an Angry Bird from the Angry Birds game and I blithely said I could. Sometimes my positive nature gets me into trouble. We looked together on Ravelry for a pattern. The Red Bird was the one he picked out and it wasn't until I began to read the pattern it that I realized it was crochet!
Crochet patterns have always confused me so much I never made anything from a pattern. I just crocheted scarves and blankets all my life. So I studied the Angry Birds pattern diligently. I can do this, I can do this, I muttered as I decided to take it step by step.
So I was very happy to find that I could complete this cute The Red Bird from Angry Birds. I didn't wait until Christmas to send it. Sometimes it is just fun to get a box in the mail when you aren't expecting one. He sounded very happy and pleased when he called and said "Thank you Grandma!"
I say thank you back. Now I know I can follow a crochet pattern as well as a knitting one. That means I struggled, but it turned out reasonably well, despite my mistakes!

It was a free pattern from Ravelry but some of them had to be taken down with copyright issues. If you can't get it, leave a comment and I'll send you the pattern I used.
