Oh, Chickie!

While surfing the blogging world I came across this cute little chick! Cara from Freckles family knit this cute little chick and shared the pattern. You can go here to find the pattern. Thanks Cara!
I knew I had to make this darling little chick so I got out my knitting needles and went to work.

Mine kind of looks like a duck because the beak is a little big but you can see in the background the inspiration that I got from this cute little Chickie!

After making the nest and the chick I thought how cute this would look as a hat and started knitting some more!

Doesn't it make a cute hat!

I made the nest out of some wool and felted it into a nest shape.

I put some eggs in the nest to keep this little Chickie company.


I knitted a bow for my hat because she looked like she was a girl and made a little fuzz for her feathers at the top.

This is a very fun and fast pattern to make.

Have a great day all you Chickie's out there!
Thanks Cara for the inspiration!

Adorable! I love the chickie hat and nesting chick. Recently I knitted an owl from a pattern I found in Knit Simple. My son wanted THAT particular owl so I used my handspun and knitted it. According to the wise little eight year old mine looked NOTHING like the picture in the magazine. I think it looked great.

Yours is totally adorable and now I want to knit a chick...that won't look anything like yours or the picture because...that's how I roll.

Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
