Finished motif measures 15 x 15cm/6 x 6in. Finished blanket measures 95 x 80cm/37 x 32in.
Please note: There is a small piece of errata for this pattern which can be found below.
To work the beak, thread a darning needle with white yarn and secure the yarn at the back of the motif in the section between the eyes. Then work six stitches into the row below, working the stitches next to each other at the top end but into the same space at the bottom end to form a peak.
