Doin’ The Pigeon … Knit and Crochet Pigeons As Gifts? Yes, Please!

Doin’ The Pigeon … Knit and Crochet Pigeons As Gifts? Yes, Please!

Recently my husband Collin did some work for Splashworks, a fun Canadian company that develops custom game experiences for a variety of clients. As a thank you gift, they sent him a couple of handmade pigeons, knit and crocheted by Luisa Perez.

Knit and Crochet Pigeons by Luisa Perez

Aren’t they perfect? What a thoughtful gift …. and Luisa even found the pigeon patterns here on Knithacker in a pigeon round-up post I did awhile back! The FREE crochet pigeon amigurumi pattern is here (scroll down for english) and the knit pattern is here, via Etsy.

You can see more of Luisa’s work in her Etsy shop, and follow her on Instagram at @littlegemsbyluisa.

AND … I love pigeons and I bet it’s because of Bert! ???
