It 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.
Note If you differ greatly from the given sizes, remember to leave extra yarn for stitching!
