    Ready for some special egg cozies? Then come and get these funny chickens into your home and onto your breakfast table!

    These Egg Sitters here are in chicken form and sit in a cozy nest. Your egg is hidden inside the belly and kept warm until you're ready to eat it. :)

    Additional use: the Egg Sitters are not only a nice change on your breakfast table; they make for beautiful decorative items as well: on the table, the window sill, your shelfs…

    Two comb versions bring some variation in larger flocks of chickens, but you can also play with colors as much as you like. Whatever you like goes. :)

    Skill Level:
    easy to intermediate

    The size depends on your gauge, chosen type of yarn and crochet hook size. I'm using Puppets Lyric yarn (8/8, DK/Light-Worsted) from Coats and a 3 mm hook. Alternatively you can use two strands of Catania Originals. With that I get the following size/s: 10 cm (without nest)

    used Techniques
    * magic ring
    * chain
    * single crochet
    * half double crochet
    * double crochet
    * slip stitch
    * loop stitch (instructions included)
    * increase and (invisible) decrease
    * crocheting in front loops (instructions included)
    * crocheting in back loops (instructions included)
    * crocheting back and forth in rows
    * crocheting in continuous rounds (rounds are not joined)
    * basic sewing (sewing on body-parts, closing openings etc)

    The pattern is very detailed. Almost every single step/stitch is explained in words and pictures. Special characteristics are explained step-by-step (i.e. the loop stitch for the nest). You see, nothing can go wrong! :)

    1) The pattern is mine. Do not (re)sell this pattern, including translations to other languages and modifications; do not redistribute, including publishing on the internet. 2) The finished figure/item is yours. :) Feel free to sell the finished products, handmade by yourself (no mass production). I'd love it if you would refer to my pattern/shop when doing so. Thank you! :)
