Pattern is worked completely in the round. All the pieces are attached as you go so there is NO seaming.

This is a fun and fast project for knitters of all skill levels. All the shaping is made with increase and/or decrease stitches.

To knit E=mchicken2, you will need to:

-Knit in the round

-Purl in the round

-Increase and decrease stitches

-Follow instructions for a three-needle decrease (provided in pattern)

Size: The toy stands approximately 7.5” tall, when knit in worsted weight yarn

Materials & Tools
• Yarn in the weight and color of your choice. For the worsted-weight sample, I used approximately 55 grams of Knit Picks Brava Worsted in the Main Color (MC) and 15 grams in the Contrast Color (CC). Your yardage will vary based on yarn weight and needle size.
• Needles for working in the round (DPNs, 2 circulars, or 1 long circular for Magic Loop). Needle size will vary depending on the yarn you use (see Gauge).
• An additional needle, same size as above, to use when working a three-needle decrease
• Tapestry needle
• Two safety eyes
• Polyfil
• Scrap yarn or spare needles for holding live stitches
• Four stitch markers
• Felt for eyes

You want to produce a dense fabric so the polyfil does not poke through. Use a needle that is at least 1 or 2 sizes smaller than the smallest needle size recommended on the yarn label.
