Birdo Crochet Pattern

Happy February!

As promised Birdo is one of the patterns being released this month.

I used a different technique that I haven’t tried with my amigurumis before in order to make Birdo’s mouth. I really wanted it to be open. I envisioned being able to stick the egg that she spits out in her mouth. It took a little bit of trial and error but I did get there in the end. Overall, I think that it adds a nice touch and a little bit of an interactive element to this character (I still have to make the egg!). I am currently working on an improvement to Birdos eyes but will update the tutorial when I figure it out.

An added bonus is that while crocheting her, I realised how similar her body shape is to Yoshi. If I do Birdo’s body in green yarn and change the way I crochet the head I will have Yoshi. So I am already 75% complete with my Yoshi pattern!

The approximate measurements using DK yarn and 3mm hook are 7.5 inches height, 5 inches width (bow span) and 4.5 inches length/depth.
