Is it still winter ?

Allthough it might still be winter, 
I have already started a little bit of Easter / Spring themed crochet !

Wanted to update the original Chicken Tea Cosy crochet pattern ages ago, 
and I finally took the time to do it. :-)
See how it came out :

I just love it ! And hope you do too. 

The chicken is completely refreshed and updated, not 1 part remained the same. 
The new pattern is easier to follow and there are less parts to sew together, 
which is always a bonus. :-D 

The chicken tea cosy was made using Stylecraft Special DK and crochet hook E (3,5 mm).
Finished size came out about 8,3" (21 cm) tall.

See links below for more pictures and info about the crochet pattern.
The pattern is available in English (US terms) and 
I'm hoping for a Dutch version available soon !


Thanks for reading ! Will be back soon ! 

XOXO Marjan

Edit to add:  The Dutch version for this pattern ! 
Er is nu ook een Nederlandstalige versie beschikbaar, via Ravelry en Etsy !  :-)

I hardly dare to say it, but I am just happy the holidays are over.

Hehe, as much as I love the Christmas season, 
I am always looking forward for the new and fresh year ahead !

So, here it is.
