SEVEN STEPS TO KNIT A BIRDHOUSE
Step 1: We will first knit up the panels for each side of the BIRDHOUSE, including the roof. I thought it would be fun to knit in different colors and knitting stitches. This is where you can really let your creativity soar!
Step 2: Attach the SIDE panels of our BIRDHOUSE by simply tacking them together with yarn using my tapestry needle.
Step 3: Add the BACK of our BIRDHOUSE by attaching it to the sides.
Step 4: Now, we can add our ROOF, which was knitted in the STAR STITCH. Adding the roof allows us to bring that top triangle piece up and attach those pieces together.
Step 5: Attach the front panel. Simply stretch your knitted piece so the little landing stick can pop out.
Step 6: The top triangle and opening area presented a tricky situation. I decided to knit up some I-Cords and fit them into the area in fun swirly connected ways. Pretty unique!
Step 7: Lastly, add a sweet bright white edge to the bottom of our BIRDHOUSE. Add any special decorative touches. I added this little HEART SHAPE.
Awesome, you have learned how to KNIT your very own BIRDHOUSE!
