I adore this little bird, and little holiday projects are a great way to use up small quantities of leftover yarn. Wouldn’t it make a super special garland you can pull out for decoration every spring?
I love the simplicity of this blanket, for either a baby, throw, or a bedspread – plus it’s a super simple project for beginners. There is a great tutorial on weaving in ends on garter stitch HERE.
We recommend using a basic, superwash Peruvian wool yarn like Cascade 220 Superwash, or if you want something a bit fancier, we like the super soft, plush and machine washable, hand dyed merino Malabrigo Rios– both are available in our bricks & mortar and online store.

Malabrigo Rios: 6 skeins 063 Natural, and 1 skein of each: 033 Cereza, 096 Sunset, 128 Fresco Y Seco, 150 Azul Profundo.
Berroco Vintage: 6 skeins 5101 Mochi, and 1 of each: 5151 Cardinal, 5121 Sunny, 5152 Mistletoe, 5143 Dark Denim.

It’s the little things that count – especially when they’re made by hand! I adore minis at the holidays, they make great gifts and adorable, timeless ornaments, and a great way to use up small amounts of leftover yarn. You can browse all the mini freebies on Ravelry, but here are a few adorable selections ….
