Crochet Pattern for Lovebird Doily
Birds of a feather are stitched together in this gorgeous crochet pattern. Birds are crocheted separately and then stitched together with a lace skirt. The birds are worked with crochet cotton thread size 10 and a steel crochet hook.
Lovebirds are one of nine species of parrots. They are the smallest of all the species "Lovebird" stems from their strong pair bonding and the long periods of time they spend sitting together.
