This gentle giant thinks he's a bird! Just wait until he tries out those "wings." Make as many tiny birds as you want, but remember that they are not suitable for small children. Suggested materials include 4/medium (worsted) yarn, a set of 7-inch US size 6 (4.0mm) double-pointed needles, stitch holder, safety eyes (size 9mm), and stuffing.
