    My grand children live in Vermont across from Shelburne Farms they love visiting the farm animals. My oldest son and his expecting wife live in Bellingham WA. They raise chickens. When I saw this book I was in knitting heaven.

    The white chicken was easy to knit and I made another smaller white chicken from the bird pattern. The chickens needed wings so I added them using the the small bird pattern.

    My 3 year old grand daughter loves Hei Hei from Moana movie. I copied the Hei Hei photo and tried to match the colors. Everyone was happy with their chickens.

    This pattern is from:
    Knit & Purl Pets


    • Tapestry Needle
    • Stuffing
    Other : I used a little red yarn for the top. And crocheted the feet instead of icord. The Hei Hei chicken I crocheted the feathers with multiple colors.


    Notes: Finished size 11 x 6 large chickens. 8 x 6 small chicken. I really didn't measure the chickens so it's an estimate.
