I am secretly hoping for more hatchlings of the cool and groovy kind.
They were great fun to make using the 'Easter Egg Pattern'. Then before they were stuffed I attached two 6mm 'Toy' eyes. The beak was a little bit tricky:
I used DK worsted weight Orange yarn and a 1.75 mm hook.
4ch, draw a loop through the second loop from the hook then the 3rd loop from the hook and the 4th loop from the hook, you should have 4 loops on the hook pull yarn through all of the loops and fasten off. I sewed the end in and firmed up the beaky shape with the stitches.
Pick up 3 double crochet in the position you would like the wing to be in. In the first DC work 1dc and 1tr, in the 2nd dc work 3 tr, in the 3rd dc work 1tr and 1dc.
I used a fine crochet hook to draw short strands through the head into position and fasten off with a slip stitch. I snipped to the required length and separated the strands of yarn.
