Description from pattern:
These little characters are all based upon the easiest of patterns. The main piece is just a garter stitch tube, with one half pushed inside the other half. This double knitted thickness and the stretchiness of garter stitch holds a chocolate egg securely in place, until it is squeezed out.

The addition of wings, ears etc transform the main piece into four versions – Chick, Duck, Bunny and Mouse. From our postbag we know that knitters are always looking for simple Easter patterns, so I’m sure these designs will be very popular.

Yarn Requirements: Small oddments of white, yellow, fawn (or brown) and orange

Chocolate Creme Eggs: Any variety, providing the eggs measure 5cm (2in) from base to top -- the size of a Cadbury creme eggs

Plastic glue-on wiggle eyes: (also known as joggle eyes or google eyes in the USA) two 7mm diameter eyes for each character
