Intro: Crocheted Western Tanager
The Western Tanager is one of the most colorful birds of the western United States. Sighting these birds is a real treat. My bird is 5 inches; long from head to end of tail. I crocheted him with hand dyed fingering weight wool yarn and embroidered additional features on him. The pattern is my own creation and I enjoy crocheting various species of birds that I see in the wild.
