Ms. Mittens has been kind enough to offer her chick pattern for free on her website and inspired this little fella. They knit up super fast, so I hope to make several for my nieces Easter presents. The pattern calls for little felt beaks and embroidered eyes. I'm looking forward to using the pattern to make little brown birds for Autumn. Maybe even knit birds for my Christmas tree? In gold lamé?
