  2. Parrot Pal
    It always amazes us how our designers inject such personality into their animal creations with just a hook, yarn and bit of stuffing. Diego the parrot by Janine Holmes is no exception and our feathered friend looks resplendent with his tufty head feathers, ruffled wings and majestic tail. We've heard that if you ask him very nicely, Diego is glad to show off his famous flamenco skills – they're very impressive! 7 24 Hour Crochet Projects
