    Stand by for a huge helping of squeeeeeeeeeeeee! Stitch London are all kinds of excited to be welcoming one of our favourite inspiring stitchers to the UK this month and to celebrate she’s designed a pattern just for us.

    Ladies and gentleman, raise your magnifying glasses to spy the tiny, the teeny, the cute enough to make you implode Tiny Perching Pigeon!

    This small and perfectly formed feathered fibre fellow is the latest work of Anna Hrachovec of Mochimochi Land, a Brooklyn-based knitter with a penchant for the tiny, the fantastically cute and the kooky.

    To celebrate her and her tiny knits arriving in the UK she’s conjured up the Tiny Perching Pigeon pattern for you lovely Stitch Londoners to cast on and create.

    Anna will join us for our Stitch London meeting on the 21st of June for cake, sunshine (hopefully) and a bit of parkside pigeon stitching.
