Mini Chicken by Sue Stratford in West Yorkshire Spinners in Illustrious Naturals DK
This little cheeky chicken can also be used as an egg cosy. As the pattern uses just 33m of yarn you can get a clutch of hens from one ball of yarn. You can knit the feet and legs as i-cords, this technique is easy to achieve with double pointed needles.
Please note: you would need oddments for the chicken comb, beak and feet.
