Here is everything you need to know about my signature robin crochet pattern!
Until it was overtaken by my crochet duckling my robin crochet pattern was my most-loved, and it still remains very popular throughout the year. The robin was after all voted the UK’s favourite bird!
The pattern tries to capture the robin as realistically a possible in all its attractive rotundity.
However, the same pattern can be used to make other kinds of birds too, of course – whether real or imaginary!
The robin can be made successfully in any yarn that is not stretchy, meaning that the robin will hold its shape when stuffed. Like all Little Conkers crochet patterns, the robin pattern includes information on choosing your yarn and stuffing materials. Below you can see the robin made in a pure wool yarn (left) and a matte cotton yarn (right).
Worked with a 3.5mm hook and DK (light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn, the finished robin is approximately 8cm long, but you can vary the size by changing yarn and hook. The pattern contains all the information you need on yarn quantities.
This robin pattern is not one I recommend for beginners at crochet – you need to be confident at counting your stitches, and keeping an even tension whilst changing colour. But every step of the process is illustrated, and the pattern of course comes with my full support if you have any questions. Plus do take a look at other people’s reviews of this pattern on Etsy.
Excellent pattern, easy to follow – perfect. Highly recommend!Joanna – 2020
What a lovely pattern. The pattern is wonderful, so easy to follow. The pictures are detailed and help you check your work as you go along. The detailed pattern instructions are easy to follow. The extra help and tips are great, especially the help on changing colour – I have always struggled to change colour but the instructions really helped me master the skill. Wonderful – thanks youSarah – 2015
