A week ago, I received a commission to design a crocheted chicken. I LOVE custom orders (particularly from super-nice, non-control-freak customers!) because it’s a chance for me to be creative in a direction I wouldn’t ordinarily take.
So… you wanna see how I design a crochet chicken?
The first step was to find out what my customer had in mind (‘chicken’ can conjure up lots of different images!). My customer gave me some specifications: a gold-colored, large chicken (so that it could double as a decorative pillow) that was plump and cuddly.
LOVE this chicken! She’s round/plump, and the simplicity of her features could easily be translated into crochet.
What do you think? I love her! She’s about 15″ tall… and she’s going to be awesome!
I’ll keep you posted on her progress!
