Aussie Creates Knitted Bin Chicken During Self Isolation
People all around Australia have been spending the past few months getting in touch with their creative side.
Whether they've picked up a paintbrush, an exercise ball, a language or an instrument, plenty of Aussies have used the pandemic to learn something.
If knitting is your thing (a totally cool and understandable talent) then you might want to give this patriotic pattern a go.
Reddit user u/femlocks uploaded their Australian white ibis creation to the social media website and it's gone viral. Hundreds of people up have upvoted the adorable knitted bin chicken and it's not hard to see why.
Normally Australian white ibises will attract scorn and horror from people in Queensland and New South Wales where the birds are usually found. They will prowl across bins to find food scraps (which is where they get their beautiful nickname) or in mangrove sections to find a nice home.

Their tiny head and large beak can send shivers down people's spines as they squark and roam through the city.
But this little guy on the other hand is simply too adorable too pass up. People reacting to the photo have praised femlocks for brightening up their day.
One person wrote: "I don't know what sorcery you used to make a bin chicken actually look...cute."
Another added: "I shall hug him and squeeze him and call him George."
A third said: "10/10. Top bin chicken."
Sadly, femlocks hasn't posted the pattern for other knitting enthusiasts to recreate this adorable guy in their own home so you'll have to use a bit of ingenuity. They said they might chuck it up on the site in the future but if you're a fan of the ole knitting needles then just give it a go yourself and see how it turns out.
