Poule de Printemps

How adorable are these little chickens?! These hens knit up quickly with about 25m of worsted weight yarn (or two strands of a DK or Sport weight held together – about 50m) and are perfect for creating a cute and festive atmosphere. And when they hide a chocolate egg, it’s even more fun! Or use one to keep your soft-boiled eggies warm? Or just keep them around the house and invite them for a coffee clutch …

Yarn Options

I like the idea of rustic, tweedy-looking chickens using Drops Soft Tweed hold 2 strands together with 5mm/US8 needles).

  • 25m of Worsted weight yarn
  • Drops Soft Tweed (hold 2 strands together with 5mm/US8 needles): colours 06, 04, 05, 01 (1 ball will make at least 2 chickens)
  • Berroco Vintage: 1 skein should make about 8 chickens …. an entire clutch!

Bluebird of Happiness

I adore this little bird, and little holiday projects are a great way to use up small quantities of leftover yarn. Wouldn’t it make a super special garland you can pull out for decoration every spring?

  • FREE Pattern
  • worsted weight yarn
  • 3.5mm/US4 double pointed needles
  • stuffing

Spring Holiday Inspiration Part 2: Easter

Rebecca Danger makes great toys, you may know her from books such as The Big Book of Knitted Monsters.  These toylets are not only free, but they can be made with bits of leftover yarn. If you want to make a bigger chirp, just use thicker yarn.

Bunny Nuggets are also a Rebecca Danger joint – the lady’s good. The same rules apply as the Chirps above, you can use leftover yarn, and the size depends on the thickness of yarn used.

Fuzzy Mitten is another talented crafter of toys and her Freebie chicks are a quick & easy Easter project. It’s actually really hard to find egg-yolk yellow mohair, but all you need is a bit of worsted weight, yellow yarn (Cascade 220 Superwash or Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran).

Baaaaaaaaaaaaa! Fuzzy Mitten’s Laaaaaaaamb is adorable, Free, and if you wish you can purchase some simple clothing patterns for it (she also sells a second set of clothes, and a third and more elaborate set of outfits). 

This little puppy is just too cute to be true. My little piece of a niece may have one in her near future.  🙂 Aran weight yarn is applicable, I’ll use Malabrigo Worsted or  or Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran.
