Baby Cockatiel Amigurumi Pattern!

Huzzah! Those of you who guessed that the little yarn pill I had on a previous post was actually the head/body of a cockatiel... you were totally right (you must have a good eye/love birdies)! As a reward and to thank you all for the mad love I've received throughout the years I've made this a free amigurumi pattern so that you can make your own baby cockatiel. Note: This pattern uses the "magic ring technique" so if you haven't gotten it down yet, visit this site!

Feel free to make these for your friends and family, but if you are going to sell them I'd really appreciate credit for the design (and maybe even link to my blog!) Also please don't distribute the pattern. Thanks in advance guys!

Materials: yarn (1-2 colors), polyfil, felt (2 colors)
Tools: Tapestry/ yarn needle, scissors, crochet hook (E-F recommended)
Finished Size (using E needle): 3” or 8 cm

Partially stitch the head and body pieces together with yarn, leave a small hole for stuffing with polyfil. After stuffing, close body. Cut out two felt circles (approximately 9-10 mm in diameter) for cheeks and a small felt triangle for the beak. Glue on felt pieces and plastic eyes. Using a yarn needle, tie 2 pieces of yarn to the top of the head and trim as necessary.
