A question Huh Since two halves are required, can I avoid knitting two pieces by increasing the cast ons from 12 to 24, then work accordingly, finish off then whip stitch the the "back"?

I made one last night and cast on 24 stitches to just knot one piece and it worked great.  I also added a few more rows so that it covered my egg a little more.  I am going to try making one on DP, but that might be more work than it is worth.  I am thinking that I might make some out of some crazy fun fur that I have lying around.....they wouldn't be chicks, but just pretty furry eggs.  Maybe I'll put eyes on them and make then little egg monsters.  I'll post pics if I end up making them.

I'm gonna go get some cheapy yellow yarn (probably red heart) and make up a bunch of these. Can anyone tell me how many chickies they got out of a skein (preferably with the wt/yds of the skein as well) so I can calculate? I hate to end up with three million pounds of cheap yellow yarn.

well redheart goes a long way
red heart classic is 174 yards

if i were you i'd get a smaller ball, maybe some cotton or baby yarn, although red heart probably costs the same

and fyi, the red heart lables DONT have the yardage written on them so go on the website before going to the store

Would this be like making a two-needle mitten? Like, would you have two little humps (pardon the phraseology) of 6 stitches each with the decreases on the beginning, middle and end? I suppose you could take it one step further and knit it in the round and just do decreases like the top of a hat...right?

These are great! I'm going to make some for my nephews and cousins!

Update about the feet I was going to put on my chicks and bunnies...

It looked stupid, so I didn't. Wink   There's my update.

I made 28, and had a major problem...I took them to school in a basket to hand out to my other teacher friends, but everywhere I went, there were more people there than I had planned on passing them out to! I ran out before the day was even halfway over and 5 of my friends as well as my entire family ended up not getting one.  I'm debating making them anyway and giving them out late.

Oh well.


~My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with a girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.~

Please come see my Etsy shop! www.notjustpurses.etsy.com Thanks Smiley

Yay for knitted chicks!

..i know it's after easter now, but I finally came from the shadows and became a registered member and wanted to toss in my two cents for this cute little project.
I used the eyelash yarn someone else suggested along with regular cheapo yarn and my little chickster turned out wicked cute.  Though, it was more tedious than i realized so instead of the slew i had planned on making, I only got one cranked out.  But the boy enjoyed it, as well as the cadbury egg it cozied.  Cozied? Sure.. why not.

Thanks for the fab pattern, pretty well explained for a new knitter

the ravens and the seagulls push each other inward and outward
inward and outward
in this place that i call home
my brain's the cliff, and my heart's the bitter buffalo
