Little Birdie

This is for Pammy Sue and anyone else who might want it ....  my interpretation !

Little Bird

Make a magic ring and work 16 dc into it. Join and close the ring.
Next round - 2ch, HDC into next stitch, DC in next stitch, 2DC in next stitch, 2HDC in next stitch, 2 SC in each of next 3 stitches, 2 HDC in next stitch, 2DC in next stitch, 2 TR in each of next 3 stitches, 2 DTR in next stitch, 1 DTR in next stitch and finish off.
Chain 4 and work all stitches in the first of these. 3 TR, 3 DC, ch 1, 1 TR, 1 ch, 3 DC, 3 TR, 2 ch then slip stitch.  Sew heart on to body.

Embroider eye with black yarn.
Beak - join yarn 2 stitches below eye and slip stitch back into same place.
NB .. I have added 2 extra DTRs to the written pattern as I thought the tail would look better a bit higher than how it is in the pictures.
I got the heart pattern is from somewhere on the net but for the life of me I can't find where it came from.
