A long time ago I knitted chicken egg cozies, like the ones featured here, to cover hard boiled or plastic eggs for my kids at Easter for their baskets. After a lengthy online search, I didn’t find anything that resembled the pattern I remembered so I was forced to “reinvent the wheel.” Somehow, more than thirty years later, I was able to generally recall the pattern and even improved upon it, by shaping the tail portion and concocting a duck, too. The pattern for both the chicken and duck are freely shared with you. Have fun! (You might find them addictive…)
