Here's a pattern I did to use up some yarn. It worked beautifully!
It's from Cutest Crochet Creations by Alison North, which was a Christmas present from my Mum. There's the cutest little love birds in the book. Of course I had to do two, it would be cruel to have a single love bird!
It's a simple start to the pattern: starting with a magic ring at the top of the head, and working down in rounds. At the bottom there's a small variation to work in the back loops only to give a bit of a flat base. The real fun work comes in the other elements of the bird. The wing is really clever, and the tail is well thought out. Although I'm not sure I really got the face correct!
The love birds in the book look better in white with various colours for their wings and tails. But since I was trying to use up some leftovers I didn't really get to chose the colour! I do like the way they came out, looking like a matching pair.
