The hen pattern has not been released on my blog, or for sale individually yet. If you are interested in this pattern, you may purchase Issue 36 of Happily Hooked Magazine to get it.

If you follow my EyeLoveKnots blog, you may remember back in April of last year (2017), I shared a little blurb about my Chicken Coasters that were featured in Happily Hooked Magazines Issue 36. Now, I am able to share this pattern with you, and I thought, what better time than Spring time, especially with Easter right around the corner? These coasters were be perfect on the table at an Easter gathering, or any Spring party. You could even work them up in fun, bright colors.

Originally, I made this along with a hen coaster as a birthday gift for my boyfriend’s mom. I settled on the hen coasters, which you’ll see here soon! My inspiration for these Chicken Coasters were my Cat Face Coasters, but after working up one, everyone laughed at them saying they looked like a chicken’s butt. I wanted to put a beak on the front, but it was a little too bulky so I guess they could pass as a chicken’s butt, and that’s why I added that into the name.

Materials:

  • 35 Yards of Worsted Weight Cotton Yarn Each Coaster - I used Lily Sugar n Cream in Ecru Cream, Red, and Yellow
  • I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends
  • Optional: Jewelry Pliers

Material Notes:
Cotton yarn can sometimes be difficult to pull a tapestry needle though. I like to use a pair of jewelry pliers to act as my fingers in pulling the needle through. Be careful not to pull to hard and break your needle.

Time Spent:
I worked up one coaster in just under half an hour.

Abbreviations:
HDC - Half Double Crochet
SC - Single Crochet
