Jazz-birds

Jazz-crow pattern

Jazz-birds is a collection of 10 amigurumis (crocheted stuffed animals) inspired by beat generation, jazz, NYC and Leonard Cohen – specially by these lines from his song Famous Blue Raincoat:

New York is cold, but I like where I’m living
There’s music on Clinton Street all through the evening.

The two birds in the picture, Beat-tit (on the left) and Jazz-crow (on the right) participated the Plush You! 2010 exhibition in Seattle, US.

The Jazz-crow is now available as a free pattern in two languages, English and Finnish.

The pattern requires intermediate crafting skills (I assume you know how to crochet and knit, the basic techniques are not explained there). It contains a plenty of pictures to help you with the details.

  1. Hyvää tekstiä! Sait juuri yhden uuden katsojan blogillesi.
    Olen hieman myöhässä kommentoimassa, mutta kommentoinpa siltikin.

    Mielestäni paras siankylkiresepti on uunissa lämmitetty maukas sianlkylkipala.
    Taita folio sahalaitaisesi pekonien alle, jotta lämpö pääsee
    kiertämään ja pekonista valmistuu tasaisen rapeita ja suolaisia.
    Teinkin jopa videon parhaista tavoista pekoonin valmistuksessa :)
