The postman legend of why the Robin is so popular at Christmas is that in Britain, postmen used to wear red tunics and were popularly known as “robins”. As a result many early Christmas cards pictured a robin knocking at the door or carrying a Christmas card in its beak.
This pattern is worked both in the round and in rows and I use abbreviations according to US crochet language. I can provide the pattern in UK crochet language if preferred, please just contact me.
The finished Robin is approximately 3.25” (8.5cm) tall and 4.25” (10.5cm) long. The robin would make a wonderful table or mantle-piece decoration or would be ideal for perching on a branch on the Christmas tree.
Yarn Needed: DK acrylic yarn in brown, white, red and tan brown.
Other Materials Needed: polyester/toy stuffing 1 pair of 5mm black safety eyes very small piece of brown felt 15cm (6”) pipe-cleaner (preferably brown)
