Cutey White Finch Amigurumi

I got a commission request to do a Amigurumi Critter representation of a white finch. I was sent some photos to help me along.

Here’s the birdie:

Very tame! Wow! I’ve never seen such a tame finch before!

So, I took most of my Amigurumi Critter pattern for shaping and wings, with the tail and feet taken from Owl Amigurumi pattern. I also used felt to get that lovely tear feather patterning.

Our finished amigurumi, which turned out very well:

I love the chubby shape, with the bright orange beak and feet contrasting the white bird body. Very cute!

The crocheting and construction went very smooth, however I was reminded how much working with white yarn can take extra time – I’d wash my hands before working on the project, no drinks or food while crocheting and a clean surface when resting the project. White yarn can pick up dirt or get tinted by other yarn colours worked near it, so extra care is needed. I hand lotion often when crocheting and knitting, and I don’t when working with white yarn just in case if makes the yarn pick up dirt!

More pictures!

I’m happy how flexible my Amigurumi Critter pattern is – maybe I should add a few more variations and photos to the pattern?

Currently, I’m working on a couple knitted lace shawls – photos coming soon.
