PATTERN DETAILS

Can be made into a stuffed toy, paper-weight or doorstop, depending on your choice of stuffing. Both US and UK versions of the pattern are available for download. You will need oddments of yarn in the same weight (DK, 8-ply, worsted weight or Aran recommended), 2m of yellow yarn (lace-weight, 4ply or DK recommended), hooks appropriate for chosen yarns, two black buttons (optional), a small amount of toy stuffing, weighted filling (optional), a needle for neatening ends. Quantities stated are for basic chicken as referenced in the pattern. Bigger chicken, more yarn ;) This is a very basic pattern that was put together quickly for a game. If you have any queries, or I've missed something out, you can follow the thread or ask me questions here You don't have to stick to chicken, I think it would make a great seal balancing a ball on its nose, a fish or a monster. You can go as large as you like with the shape itself - think adult beanbag, if you have the patience. Trims will need to be adjusted accordingly. I hope you enjoy.

My real name is Thomasina but most people just call me Tammy. I've loved crochet since I was a child, when someone bought me the Ladybird Learn to Crochet book for Christmas. I tried to teach myself, and failed, so many times before it clicked. But, when it did, my parents couldn't have been happier! No longer did I moan about having nothing to do.....a copy of Golden Hands and I was no trouble for days. As I got older, I worked my way through most of the crafts in those magazines, (which I still have today), but crochet and sewing were the only ones to capture my imagination completely. Back in the 80s, pregnant with my eldest daughter, I suddenly had a reason to crochet again - bonnets, booties, matinee jackets and no end of blankets awaited her arrival; it was something I picked up and put down many times over the years that followed. It wasn't until the birth of baby number 5 (last year), that I started writing patterns for the things I made - I guess being teased by my family that I might get old and forget them was the prod I needed ;) The patterns I bring you now are a mixture of both old and new designs - I hope you find something you like.
