I made these tiny chickens for the members of my Ingress Enlightened group, whose mascot is a chicken.
See my previous chicken doorstop here. These chickens are based off this pattern by The Nimble Mouse, but since I wanted to make them smaller with worsted weight yarn, I had to improvise the rounds a bit.
Pattern:Make a magic ring with 6 sc.
1: [sc, 2sc] around
2: [sc, sc, 2sc] around
3: [sc, sc, sc, 2sc] around
4: sc around
5: sc around
6: sc around
Stuff and close up chicken with slip stitches in the back loops across the opening.
In 3rd st from left: sc, ch2, slst in next st, ch3, slst in next st, finish off and weave in ends.
Just below the eyes, sc in an edge st, ch2, sc in next st, finish off and weave in ends.
I used an E hook with Vanna's Choice Oatmeal yarn.
