Simple Crocheted Bird Feeder Pattern

diy crocheted glass bird feeder
Here’s a super easy idea for a DIY bird feeder made from a shallow, glass container and a ball of jute twine. It’s suspended from the roof overhang so it won’t fill up with water during a storm. It’s very easy to crochet; hopefully my pattern makes sense. Now I just have to wait for the birds to find it.

Pattern:
1. Chain 40 using a size I hook. Slip stitch the first and last chains together to create a loop.
2. Chain two. Single crochet in next 4; Chain one. *Sc in next 5; Ch 1.* Repeat 6 more times.
3. *Chain 6; skip 5; single crochet in chain space.* Repeat 6 times. For the last one, chain 3, skip 5, and triple crochet in the chain space.
4. *Chain 8; Sc in middle of Ch 6 from previous row.* Repeat 6 times. For the last one, chain 4, and quadruple crochet (wrap twine around hook 3 times) at the beginning stitch of this row.
5. *Chain 10; Sc in middle of Ch 8 from previous row.* Repeat 6 times. For the last one, chain 5, and quintuple crochet (wrap twine around hook 4 times) at the beginning stitch of this row.
6. *Chain 8; Sc in middle of Ch 6 from previous row.* Repeat 6 times. For the last one, chain 4, and quadruple crochet (wrap twine around hook 3 times) at the beginning stitch of this row.
7. *Chain 6; Sc in middle of Ch 6 from previous row.* Repeat 6 times. For the last one, chain 4, and quadruple crochet (wrap twine around hook 3 times) at the beginning stitch of this row.
8. Fit the net around your glass container. Chain 50, then slip stitch the end of the chain to a point halfway across the container. Chain 50, then slip stich the end of the chain to the other side of the container. Repeat one more time so that your handle has 3 straps.
9. Fill with birdseed and hang outside in a protected, secluded area.
