Life is Hard. We all need a chicken to make it all better!
This is a modification of a pattern by the late Bev Galaskas for Fibertrends called Henrietta and Family.

You can create your own magical comfort chicken, that doesn’t need a permit to always be with you! It is loveable and huggable and you don’t even have to feed it to love you back!

Mine is named Lindsey LoHEN!

Materials: 200yards of worsted weight yarn MC, 100 yards of CC, 10 yards each of wattle, crown and beak yarns
