Flappy Bird Pattern

People who have been following my blog for a while might have caught on by now that I absolutely adore internet hypes and memes. I’m not entirely sure myself of the exact reason, but sometimes I just can’t resist crocheting something I have seen online one too many times. The same goes for Flappy Bird. I have never, ever played the game and the way it looks right now I will never be able to. Maybe that’s just for the best, seeing the many youtube movies where people smash their phones out of frustration.

For those of you that do play Flappy Bird and can crochet (or have a friend/family member who can) I have the solution to your phone breaking problems: your very own Flappy Bird to abuse, throw around the room and submit to whatever else you  think you need to do to vent your frustration.

It’s a kind of short and sweet pattern and shouldn’t be too hard to figure out. As always, if you do have any questions, feel free to contact me in the comments or send me an email over at lydia[at]crochetnanigans[dot]com ^_^ Flappy crocheting!

Eyes (make 2)

R1: ch16 and start working your way around the chain (ch16)
R2: starting from the second chain from the hook, sc14, sc3 in next st, continue on the other side of the chain, sc13, sc2 in the last st (32)
FO, leave an end of yarn to sew the mouth to the body, just below the eyes. When it’s on the body, embroider a line with some black thread.

And there you have it: your very own, 3 dimensional Flappy Bird.

You have to help him keep elevated

He's not very good at flying, but can crash like the best!

Here's how he looks from the front, which is a bit silly, since all you ever see is the side ^_^"

Since I haven’t played the game and have only seen a couple good pictures of Flappy Bird, this design might not be completely accurate. But I still quite like it ^_^

Obviously, Flappy Bird is not my intellectual property (or else I would now be in my huge villa, hiding from the people making dead threaths towards me and not being able to crochet at all) but this pattern is. So please do not sell this pattern or post it as your own. You are welcome to share, but give credit and link back to my site, thanks!

Cheers, Lydia
