I love them so much!  I'm going to make one for every child in my fiance's family for easter... and he has a HUGE family.  Good thing I started early! 

It took me a few trials to perfect them.  I had to change the number of stitches a little, 'cause my yarn is so bulky and the plastic eggs they're on are a bit small...  I also started smaller, then increased, then decreased again so they hugged the egg better and looked a little less Pack Man ghost-ish.

I also used eyelash yarn that also had little fuzzies mixed in that reminded me of feathers... it's the perfect yarn for this project.  Knitted it held together with yellow cheap Red Heart yarn.



I'm also putting name tags on all of them just to personalize them a bit. 

These were/are SO much fun!!!  (We'll see if I'm still saying that on chick number 14...)

Thanks again, kittenporn, so so much.  You rock!

Edited to fix pix.

Hi Brae_day,

Nice stuff.  How did you do the beak?

Okay time to share a bunny!! Smiley

He's not stuffed yet. I have to go to Hobby Lobby tomorrow to get the white eggs (3 dozen for a buck!...but they're 4 dozen for a buck at Jo-Ann's, although they don't have white)...

The beak for the chicks, atleast on mine, is just orange card stock cut into a triangle and folded, then glued on. Smiley

I'm going to make feet too-foam sheets cut into heart shapes and glued on the eggs. *nodnod*

I just gasped aloud. 
hold crap that is the cutest thing I've seen in recent memory that isn't a puppy.
Awesome work girl!
I even have yellow yarn leftover from a random christmas-gift-of-yellow-yarn-from-a-non-knitter-who-gave-me-a-totally-random-amount.
actually...  I think I might need to make one right now. 
this totally surpasses by leaps and bounds all of my previous Easter Dinner gifty-goodies...

Thanks!

I just used regular ol' construction paper for the beak and hot glue gunned it on...  then I found some of my old sparkly clear nail polish, (ooh perdy) and painted it onto the beak.  It firmed it up a bit plus it's all sparkly!!  The beak was kind of the hardest part because it really determines the "expression" that it gives your chick.  Anyone else notice that?  Tongue

And that bunny looks awesome too!  The pipe cleaner ears are perfect.  Cheesy

This is such a great pattern and nice and quick and easy and great way to use up left over yarn.  Thanks for sharing.  Heres my bunny and chick.  I used felt for the bunnies ears and embroidery thread for its whiskers.  I am going to make a blue bunny tonight:).

These are so adorable!  I am going to make some of these for my nieces and nephews for Easter this year.  I have tons of baby yarn left over from various baby blankets etc.  I am so excited about making these.  I love the fun fur one....and the bunnies.
