This listing is for an extensive PDF file which contains full instructions for crocheting and finishing off a Red-and-Green Macaw. Once paid for it is available for you to instantly download.
The file is 44 pages long and contains 68 detailed step-by-step photographs along with full pattern instructions and tips for crocheting, sewing and finishing neatly. In addition to textual instructions, there are also crochet charts.
Please note that this project is not a quick or simple crochet. It takes a lot of time to crochet and finish the parrot and a lot of time is spent on the finishing off. There are lots of separate pieces which require sewing. That said this PDF file will give you all of the information that you need to crochet the Red-and-Green Macaw.
