Cend - Bird of Paradise

Bird of Paradise or in Indonesia called Cendrawasih is one of the most beautiful birds in the world. In Indonesia, this species is found in West Papua.. Birds of paradise are known to have beautiful feathers, but only male bird paradise which have that fantastic plumes, which used to attract the attention of the surrounding female birds of paradise.

One of paradisaea genus that have caught my eyes is Lesser bird of paradise..


and i tried to make an amigurmi of him... Not too satisfied yet.. but at least i have tried my best.. :D
The pattern is so easy and simple. The difficulty is just to brush the long decorative plumes.
I named him Cend...
Enjoy the pattern...
