Easter Knitting

We went down to my mum’s for Easter lunch on Sunday, and I knew she was planning a little easter egg hunt for us all with treats. So I thought I should take her a treat as well. She is brilliant at smocking (the embroidery on the front of gathered dresses, nighties, etc) so as soon as I saw the pattern for the Smocked Dishcloth I knew I had to make her one.

I thought that was it for the gift, as I also had bought her some Lindor mini eggs – those are her favourites. Then I got to thinking about what I could put the mini eggs in, started browsing around Ravelry, and with some time to spare Saturday night made this little critter.

The Easter Egg Chick Cozy is a Ravelry free pattern. It knit up with scrap acrylic yarns in about 35 minutes. I had to resist making another dozen to go with it, as I was so pleased with my little chicken.



  1. Awww, your little chicken is adorable! Sounds like you all enjoyed a happy Easter. I love anything smocked, have never actually tried it, but have it kept in the back of my mind for one day. The smocked dishcloth is gorgeous, pretty Easter colours, too. Oh, and Lindt chocolates are my fav., too. Same goes for my youngest daughter :) Mmmm mmm.

  2. oh i just love that little chicken! she’s too sweet for words! (and not just because she’s filled with chocolate eggs)

    the smocked cloth is a really cool pattern – i’m going to have to add it to my queue!

  3. I can see why you were so pleased with your little chicken!! Too cute. Please oh please make a dozen sometime in the future….would love to see a ‘gaggle’ of chickens! ;)

    As a side note, I can’t believe that Melissa hasn’t knit that dishcloth pattern yet. Are you two having a sort of competition as to who can find the coolest patterns?

  4. I feel so much better knowing I am not the only grown-up whose parent still gives them Easter treats! Love the chicken!

  5. Ah, SO cute!!
