Hello again :)
Spring is in full swing now and although the weather is still a bit cold and windy here in the UK, I decided to have a colourful Easter indoor this year. I just needed these bright energizing colours in my life, sunshine, warmth, positivity especially now when there has been so much people's misery and sadness at work and around. I also cannot simply wait when the Covid-19 will be a thing of the past.
Roll on sunnier, happier days!
So, to put some sunshine into my life, I decided to crochet this cute Easter chick to add to my Easter decorations.
I'm pleased how he has turned out, sizewise and colourwise. I used Yarn Art Jeans yarn (my favourite recently!) and a 2.0 mm crochet hook. The chick is about 18 cm tall.
I love this little fella and his/her cheekiness of wearing a bunny ears hat.
I added some little tufts of hair on its head. It always makes a chick look extra cute, I think :)
I also opted this time for some black bead eyes instead of inserting plastic safety eyes, as I tend to. I'm quite pleased with the effect. A small neat pair of eyes were needed for this chick and all the safety eyes I've got are 5 mm or more. (Weirdly, you can't find easily small safety eyes under 5mm size complete with washers. Trust me. Been there, done that.)
I added a little tail of my own... For some reason the pattern didn't predict it. I had to improvise a bit.
