Free Amigurumi Crochet Chubby Parrot Pattern

My father is part of the bird watching club, and he ask me for some small crochet birds that he can use for decorated his car. So I made this two chubby parrot for him. And what funny is my friend ask are these two goldfish? Ahh may be next time I will try crochet some goldfish, or should I improve the parrot design so it resemble the bird more. LOL


After he got this two, he requested for more smaller birds key chain (with various type of birds), for souvenir for his friends. I still didn't make them for him. If I am in mood of crochet birds, I will share the patter with your guys. ;) 

I crochet them last year, so it will be only written pattern and no video tutorial. The pattern was written in standard american term.

After finished crochet, sewing or gluing every parts together. I add some strap at the top of both head, so my father can hang them in his car. You can leave it just like this as use them as a decoration doll. It is also a good idea to use them as a gift to a bird lover couple. I also have an idea of putting them together on some wood branch and hang them from the ceiling or tree, would also be a good idea, don't you think.

Hope you enjoy the pattern, any problems during making him, comment below. I will try answer you as fast as I can. :)
