The First of Many...

Presenting.... a new knitted chicken friend.



This little stuffed chicken is so sweet. It is so soft and squishy.

This is knit from the pattern Knit Chickens by Susan B. Anderson, using
Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Dyed Cotton.

I wanted this chicken to be, in the words of my daughter the "Mama Chicken" so I excluded the tail feather instructions and included eyelashes for a more "feminine" look.




I just love how it turned out! And as you can see, my daughter agrees!

But truth be told. I'm afraid "Mama Chicken" might be a little lonely.




She needs a "Daddy Chicken" in her life.

Congrats on you creations.

I can sympathize with your comment about body types. I have a straight figure with no waist definition. I appreciate someone else saying how some things just don't fit right. I had been toying with the idea of adding shaping to help create the illusion of a waist but maybe straight lines are better.

Such a cute chicken. I think by granddaughters would love one!

PrincessPea said...

That is just adorable! And your daughter clearly agrees...

By the way, I've been trying to leave comments recently from IE (at work), and not been able to. Just thought you'd like to know in case anyone else has had the same problem.

I love the chicken - especially the hot pink and orange color! You've inspired me to make one of my own for my nephew ( a boy one, though)...
