Flying Birds crochet stitch, as the name suggests, looks like a flock of birds flying away. It looks quite similar to the Flower Ridge Knitting Stitch, with long loops making the ‘V’-shaped motifs.
Each flying bird motif is worked over 6 stitches and repeats over 4 rows. It uses basic crochet stitches, chain and single crochet stitches, making it a beginner-friendly crochet stitch.
Flying Birds crochet stitch is perfect for doing projects like blankets and pillows.
