Welcome to another Free Pattern Friday! This week's pattern is a 2.5" tall cockatiel amigurumi. The pattern is available on Ravelry or you can find it written below. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at icrochetthings@gmail.com.

Just a fun little thing I did a few nights ago. I also modified it a little bit to make a parakeet:

▪  Felt in red
▪  E hook (3.50 mm)
▪  Stuffing
▪  6 mm safety eyes
