London’s Trafalgar Square has been pigeonless since the ban on seed selling back in 2000. It’s a very wrong thing to do to a place famous for its pigeon-ality. Such a shame.
With this in mind Stitch London teamed up with the Empress of the Tiny Knits, Anna Hrachovec of Mochimochi Land, to create a fibre-feathered flock of Tiny Perching Pigeons. It was seriously coo coo cool.

The feathered suspect line up goes on...
And on some more...
And a little more...
Will it never end?
Clearly not yet...
It must be nearly over...
Well maybe just a few more
Pigeons all partied out. Time to fly home.
Now that pigeon-kind is returned to the Square once more we feel it’s important for everyone to get their pigeon on where ever they are. Anna has produced a free Tiny Perching Pigeon pattern for you to do just that.
Add your Tiny Perching Pigeon Party pics to her Mochimochi Flickr group and our Stitch London Flickr group. Go on. Get your purled pigeons out there.
