European Robin Amigurumi – Free Pattern

I received several requests from you for a European Robin Amigurumi and so I thought it’s time to finally finish my pattern!

This Robin amigurumi is a great project for intermediate as well as seasoned crocheters! You don’t necessarily have to use it to make a robin. You can let your creativity flow and make any any bird you like. There’s also a video tutorial on my YouTube channel, in case you need visual guidance.

    Hi, I really love this pattern!

    I have a problem though – my two sides of the head (colour changes) are always uneven and I have no idea why : ( What am I doing wrong?!

      Hi Zote, I’m so glad to hear you like the pattern. Sometimes colour changes can look different because we all have different tension when we crochet. The two sides of the head will probably look slightly different for everyone though because the single crochet stitch naturally creates a diagonal pattern, if you know what I mean. The last stitch moves slightly back every round. So my bird doesn’t look the same on both sides either. I hope this helps. If not, feel free to send me photos of your work to stellasyarnuniverse@outlook.com, so I can try to figure out what’s going on. 🙂
