Knitted budgies

parakeet knitting pattern by Nicky Fijalkowska

budgie knitting pattern and knit kit
Who's a pretty boy then? Sparky the budgie! He's easy to knit flat on 2 needles and can't wait to be your new best knitted friend. His knitting pattern is here in my Etsy shop, and also on Ravelry and Love Knitting. I've also put together a budgie knit kit, containing everything that you need to knit a Sparky, including yarn, notions, stuffing, the knitting pattern and a lovely handbag mirror - it would make a really cute gift for the budgie fan in your life.
