Crocheted Chicken Potholder
So it's no secret that I am chicken crazy. What can I say...I love my birds! Since I love crafting and I love chickens, when I saw this Lion Brand pattern, I just had to make these cute little chicken potholders. You can find the tutorial here. (There are two separate patterns - one for the mama hen and one for the chick. My link will take you to one, but check out the other linked patterns on the LB website.)
I found that these worked up rather nicely and quickly. Definitely add the wing before you join the front and back sides together! Also, I found it extremely helpful to steam iron my front and back before joining them. They were curling a bit and by ironing them, they went together very nicely.
Note: I didn't you the recommended Cotton Ease yarn. I had Peaches 'n Cream already on hand so I used that.
