My hand knitted contributions were one dozen (12) chick cosies for chocolate creme eggs for each project. The hand knitted nest was not part of the deal.

The pattern was © Chloe Blunn Designs 2012, a free download from ravelry.

|Embroider the eyes.|
|Add the beak.|
For the beak I deviated from the pattern by adding a knitted beak instead of a felt beak.
Make two pieces.
Leaving a 10cm (4 inches) tail, using a contrast coloured yarn cast on three stitches.
Cast off these three stitches. There are no rows worked in between the cast on and the cast off.
Cut yarn leaving a 10cm (4 inches) tail.
I found the beak worked best with the cast off edge uppermost for both pieces of the beak.

|Ready for the creme egg.|
