Quick and Easy Easter Fun
I finished these sweet little chicks and bunnies and since there is still plenty of time before Easter to knit your own - I wanted to share them with you.
These truly were some of the easiest things I have ever knit. You only need the most basic of skills (casting on and the knit stitch), small bits of yarn, and perhaps a child to give them to. You can get the pattern from Susan B. Anderson of Itty Bitty Hats fame. Just scroll down a little ways and look for the photo on the left side of her blog. She will send them to you as a pdf file and you can start on them this evening! I just love her patterns - and they are always easy to follow. Honestly, if you can knit a square, you can make these.
I used Bernat's Cotton Tot yarn in white for the bunny. I love the feel of this yarn and it is very inexpensive. I picked mine up at JoAnn's. Any cotton yarn will do. For the chick I had some yellow chenille looking yarn already, so I just used that.
Go ahead and try them. You know you want to!
