You will need...
- Any colour double knit yarn (who says chicks have to be yellow!)
- A pair of needles UK size 3.75mm / 9 / US 5 (I personally think that 4mm needles give a better fit for the egg)
- Small piece of felt for the beak
- Some black yarn for the eyes
Cast on 24 stitches and Knit 2 rows. Increase 1 stitch at the beginning of every row until there are 36 stitches on the needle. (to add a stitch to the beginning of the row just cast on one more stitch)
Knit 2 more rows.
Cast off 11 stitches on the next row then knit to the end. Repeat on next row.
Knit 12 rows.
Knit 2 together across the row, ending with 7 stitches.
With a darning needle draw the wool throu the 7 stitches and sew the chick up. Leave a space on the underside to insert the egg.
Add the eyes and beak!
Here is a good video for Garter Stitch. if you can master this you can easily knit the chick above!
