How to make chickens and bunnies from a knitted square

These little knitted projects are a wonderful preparation for Spring and Easter. I loved looking after chickens as a child as well a knitting. I have used wool from my parent’s sheep so this is truly holistic. You can buy hand spun wool and / or the kit to make these projects on Etsy from the link below. If you don’t have time to make your own then they are available as ready made little farm animals in hand spun sheep’s wool in natural colours below too.
