Quick Chick!

... for those - who with still hundreds of things to do - still have to knit!
Quick Chic
1. Cast on 18sts in Aran or DK yarn and 4mm needles (or ones to suit your yarn)
2. Knit (in garter stitch) rows to create a square
3. Cast off
4. Fold in half across the diagonal - corner to corner
5. Fold in half across the diagonal again
6. Over-sew the outer row ends of each diagonal side together - this become the hen’s back
7. Over sew the folded ends leaving about 2cm from the hen’s back down - splay this open part out to become the hen’s tail feathers
8. Shape the hen to create a slight curve along the back
9. With embroidery thread or similar work a short row of blanket stitch from the point (beak) created at the diagonal edge
10. Then work either a single lazy daisy petal for each wattle or just a couple of straight lines per wattle to complete
