Chicken pot holder

It was love at first sight when I saw these on Miss Holly's blog "Seaview"! Thought I could figure out from the pictures how to make them and here you go:

Just love this little gal and now she needs a friend! So I need to get a new ball of white cotton... or I could make her a creme or brown companion - I'll see!

Thank you, Miss Holly , for sharing the pictures!

Thanks for coming over!


Edit: I had written the post earlier and came back now to add the picture and in the meantime the second chicken is growing, in cream :-) just couldn't wait!


  1. So cute Tina; I used to crochet, but with my arthritis it has been quite a while. I do enjoy seeing your projects.

  2. Hi! Your blog is really nice, I love all your pictures! Your knitting and garden is beautiful. I really like the socks with the orange stripe. :-) I need to post some pictures of my knitting. Your dogs are very cute, I love the pictures of them playing.


  3. That chicken is very cute, I want one, I want one!

  4. As a mother to three chickens, I LOVE it and want one!! Lovely!

  5. Oohh, I saw one in black before,but this one looks more like mines :)
    I might copy you in a future,
    because Iamadaboutmyhens=locaxmisgallinas !!!!!!!!!!

  6. Oh Tina!! she's beautiful!! well done you!!! I think I better make a few more and come up with a pattern to share!! so sweet of you to link my site...really really love this wonderful world we are creating here....nice people who just want to live gentle lives!! thank you so much.....

  7. So cute!!!
    Thank you for commenting on my blog! So glad to read from you!

  8. Thank you so much for your lovely comments! I had a busy week and only got back here today...
    Rita, so sorry that you can't crochet any more, but such a small object could be easy, just a few stitches at a time...
    Thanks Caron, and you are welcome! Curious to see your knitting, too!
    Inthesky, Karen, Virginia, I knew exactly that you'd like these! Go ahead, whip one up, I am sure you'll figure it out, too. Wouldn't it be great to see the chicken family spread over all our blogs?
    Miss Holly, I think the pattern would be greatly appreciated in the blog world, you could even publish it on Ravelry for more people to see it. I think it is a nice and easy to do potholder, hotpad, dishcloth, or washcloth for chickenfans. And I am absolutely with you on the nice and gentle world that can be created on the web through our blogs, find friends with the same interests all over the world and have them in our living room or craft room for a cuppa with a mouseclick. I am happy to be a part of this :-)
