At the Knitting & Stitching Show, one treat to tweet about on the Creacrafts stand was the chance to make an Easter chick or two in our very own Harmony yarn. But not just any chick. It’s a cover that’s just the right size to accommodate a particularly famous creme egg – perfect for fun Easter pressies for friends and family.

The beautifully simple pattern knits up in minutes and only needs to be folded in half and stitched together. A contrasting beak and embroidered eyes complete the cute project – so it’s a great idea for beginners to try. You can go for classic Mustard, or break out into psychedelic Fuchsia, Teal, Grass Green or Lavender – look on the website to choose your palette, and download the free pattern here. There’s plenty of time to knit a whole colourful brood before Easter arrives!
