chick knit...


Loving this knitted chick egg cosy, it features in Sophie Dahl's book Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights. I want to knit one, but I'm not good knitting freestyle without a pattern - has anyone seen one like this? I have done a web search but can't find anything similar.

  1. I love Sophie Dahl's cookbook. I have made the banana bread too many times to count! The egg cosy is gorgeous - I also took a liking to it, but do not knit. :( Anyway, a cute pattern I know of for a knitted egg cosy is on the Little Cotton Rabbits blog http://www.etsy.com/listing/48221367/knitting-pattern-for-a-bunny-egg-cosy
    I saw these chicken ones, but they are a little different to what you are after http://www.achildsdream.com/handwork_supplies/knit_sew_crochet/knitting_books_kits.htm

  2. This is crochet I think, my grandmother would do them until the cows come home. I have googled "crocheted chicken egg cosy" and have come across quite a few patterns, however, not quite the same as the above. Hope this helps.
