Let's Knit knitted chickens!

Easter chickens knitting pattern by Nicky Fijalkowska

My knitting pattern for these little knitted chickens are in the April issue of Let's Knit magazine! They are a super quick and easy knit and are a great way of using up any scraps of DK yarn that you have in your stash. They're the right size to hide a Creme Egg inside, so will make a really sweet little Easter gift for a special someone (or you can use them to hide your Creme Eggs so no-one else will pinch them!)

Long tailed tit

Long tailed tit bird knitting pattern Nicky Fijalkowska
I've been working on knitting some long tailed tits over the weekend - hoping to get out this week and find some blossom for them to sit in so I can take some outdoors photos.

Seagull work in progress

Here's a work-in-progress photo of some little knitted gulls that are an adaptation of one of the first knitting patterns I ever did. I've simplified these by losing some of the felt details and changing the beak to a simple knitted shape - I quite like these new streamlined gulls.

A lovely pair of knitted kookaburras! I'm really happy with how these guys are turning out.

Cockatiel knitting pattern by Nicky Fijalkowska
Two knitted cockatiels, trying to put the world to rights.


To celebrate the start of the Chinese new year, the year of the Fire Rooster, my knitted chicken did a Crazy World of Arthur Brown cosplay.

Let's Knit guinea pigs!

Guinea pigs knitting pattern by Nicky Fijalkowska
Meet Neil and Stanley, the knitted guinea pigs! If you'd like to make them, my knitting pattern is in the February issue of Let's Knit magazine. They are nice and easy to make, they are knitted flat on 4mm needles and you can use your favourite DK yarn to make them.
