The pattern for this chubby little bird is a perfect choice for loom knitters interested in making amigurumi. This cute little fowl is made with the Martha Stewart Knit and Weave Loom and can also be stuffed with beans to make it a beanbag toy.

Loom Knit Bird

Lion Brand® Martha Stewart CraftsTM/MC Extra Soft Wool Blend

GAUGE:

Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Knit 2 stitches together
Note:
The following explanation only applies when knitting 2 stitches together at the end of a row.
Move yarn loop from the last working peg to the next to last working peg above existing loop - 2 loops on peg. Knit both loops together to decrease 1 stitch.

NOTES:

1. Follow loom manual instructions for SINGLE KNITTING for how to cast on, knit, purl and bind off.
2. For Body, Feet, Beak and Wings, the loom is configured into a rectangle for stability. All work will be done on one long side only.
3. Loom can be configured into a variety of shapes to suit your preference. If desired, use additional loom pieces to configure loom into any shape, then knit back and forth in rows on just one side of loom.

Loom Configuration
Use the following pieces: (2) 36-hole pieces, (2) U-shaped pieces

Connect the pieces as follows: 36-hole piece > U-shaped piece > 36-hole piece > U-shaped piece

BODY (make 2)

Repeat along loom until all loops are threaded. Gently remove knitting from loom. Pull end of yarn to gather stitches, add a small amount of stuffing, then use remainder of tail to sew seam.

Loom Knit Bird Reviewed by Penelope Flagg on 2012-01-06 *****
What fun this pattern was! I was able to use up the left over yarn I had from other projects. I made this one to match a baby hat that I made! The pattern was very easy to follow.
