Overrun With Bunnies

Getting the box of Easter decorations out from storage, I realised that I had plenty of decorative eggs but not a lot of chicks.  Bunnies there were a-plenty - knitted, crocheted, furry and fluffy ones.

The nest of decorative stone eggs needed something to warm them.

So I crocheted this rather demented looking chicken!

I was inspired by this pattern for chicken egg cosies by Corinne Frieden, but rather than making a cosy I continued to crochet the base so that it could be made into a stuffed toy.

I don't know what it is about her, but I suspect that by Easter Sunday, she may have frightened all the bunnies into hiding!

I've just spotted all that lovely sunshine in the garden when I took the photos - it's gone now - dull and overcast and still freezing!


  1. Oops! Accidentally deleted the comment from Penny at Violet White. Sorry Penny, you asked about the bunnies in pink dresses - they are from an Alan Dart pattern for knitted bunny bride, groom and bridesmaids. I thought they looked good as Easter bunnies. The pattern is actually called Bridal Bunnies.

  2. That chicken is amazing! I love her dementedness. Thanks for making me smile today. :)
