Kiwi Crochet Amigurumi Pattern.
Koa is a petite bird, endemic to New Zealand. Despite his small wings, he cannot actually fly. This hasn’t stopped Koa from dreaming of one day catching a commercial aircraft flight, and being able to see the world from above!

You can use any yarn of your choice, just adjust your crochet hook according to the yarn.
Caution: If this toy is intended for a baby/small child, embroidered eyes are recommended. If you choose to use safety eyes, be sure to attach them securely. Make sure all yarn ends are thoroughly weaved in. Supervision around children is recommended.
Koa measures approximately 16cm/6.5 inches from top of the beanie to base of the body, & 13cm/5.5 inches across the body to the legs. These measurements are based on using the indicated yarn & hook.
