Description from designer’s website:
I am so excited to offer these Easter Friends as a pattern for you. They are just perfect for an Easter basket or to stick in a pocket. The Bunny and Chick are fun knitted toys for any time of the year but especially for the spring season.

I have to tell you that my intention for this pattern is to get people started knitting simple toys. These two stuffed toys are made in the simplest form possible. They are both made from garter stitch squares, the most basic beginner starting point. You have to sew a seam or an ear, but garter stitch is incredibly forgiving to seam, so don’t worry about it. The Bunny and Chick couldn’t be easier to knit but they look sweet and not beginner-ish in the end. I love that.

  • Chick: Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille, 1 skein each in Yellow #3646 and Mango #2230
  • Bunny: Lily Sugar’n Cream, 1 skein each in White #18001 and Rose Pink #18046
