Since we are named Wicked Chickens Yarn, you knew we had to do a united chicken kit asap! Here it is, our mascot chickens! These adorable friends are so much fun to knit, with their long stripes legs and lovable and huggable round tummies. And made in fingering weight yarn included in this kits, they are small enough to sit in your hand. Make up a whole brood to give to your farming friend, or your urban homesteading friend without room for live chickens!
This knitting kit includes the materials you need to knit these two chickens in the round:
Intermediate Knitting Pattern
100% Wool Fingering Weight Yarn in 5 Colors. Over 275 yards!
Two Sets of 6mm Safety Eyes
All you will need to complete your holiday friends is a US Size 1 (2.25 mm) circular needle, a tapestry needle, 18 removable stitch markers, and scissors! Please note we do offer that you can add a set of stitch markers in a small tin to your kit for only $6. These markers are perfect for our small fingering kits! It includes 24 removable markers and 4 closed, snag-free shaped markers for the beginning of the round all in a cute little tin. You can see the tin of markers listing here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/611982215/wicked-chickens-yarn-stitch-marker-set?ref=shop_home_active_1
The big chicken comes out about 5.5” for just the body and 10” head to toe. The chick comes out about 3” for just the body and 6” head to toe. This pattern can also be knit in any weight yarn. The last photo shows the fingering weight chickens that this kit makes next to worsted weight chickens made using the same pattern.
The kit will come complete with a printed version of the pattern, with a download code on it to receive the pdf version of the pattern through Ravelry.com (no ravelry account necessary). The pattern is designed by author and designer Rebecca Danger, known for her whimsical monster and creature knitting patterns.

Great kit, beautifully packaged. I love that the pattern has you put markers for where you'll place the wings, legs, etc because I always struggle with that. I wish they had you mark where the eyes go though. Getting those in place has given me fits. Overall, very happy with the kit.
