I knit each of these chicks in about an hour including sewing the seam and adding the beak and eyes. These cute chicks are egg covers. Their shape is completed with a plastic Easter egg in the knitted body. These great little chicks are knit on U.S. Size 6 knitting needles and a small amount of DK weight yarn. I knit these using Plymouth Encore DK in yellow.
I make regular trips to the magazine section at Barnes & Noble. I love that they carry a wide variety of knitting, sewing, and craft magazines that are published in the U.K. These chicks were on the cover of Love Crafting Easter Special
There are lots of cute projects in this magazine. In addition to the chicks, there is a family of knit ducks, and a few sewing projects that look like fun.
Here's a few more pictures of my chicks. I'll be making as many as I can in the next few weeks and sharing them with family and friends for Easter.
Now if I could only locate the bunny egg cover that I knit a few years ago, I could make a lovely scene for Easter.
