A wonderful bird is the pelican, his bill can hold more than his belly can! With this pattern you can knit your own pelican, and a fish for his supper that he can carry in his beak.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams. This pattern incorporates kitchener stitch grafting for the beak, and you can find a free tutorial on how to work kitchener stitch at http://fluffandfuzz.weebly.com/tutorials1/how-to-do-kitchener-stitch-grafting

FINISHED SIZE: The pelican is approximately 13cm tall and the fish is 4cm long.
