Elizabeth the Dodo

Elizabeth the Dodo is a firm favourite in the menagerie here at TOFT. With a mixture of five different colours, this is the perfect project for practising the colour change technique.

Standing at around 22cm tall, this woolly version of the extinct bird is in fact around the same size as its distinctive bill! The flightless yet fearless dodo stood larger than a turkey at around three feet tall and was found on the island of Mauritius before being driven to extinction by humans who discovered their home. The last recorded sighting of this magnificent bird was made in 1662.

This cute crochet project forms part of the ever-expanding 'Edward's Menagerie' collection of amigurumi crochet toys designed by Kerry Lord. This amigurumi crochet kit contains our luxurious pure wool DK yarn and an easy-to-follow downloadable pattern with video links for all the techniques.
