For all chicken lovers out there I made a chicken potholder as the third pattern. I wanted to add more colors to the collection so made this chicken potholder in yellow color. If you like you can make red, orange and white chickens too. 🙂
First, you need to make two flat circles. After adding facial features on to the one flat circle you will see a cute chicken face. The next step is joining these two circles together to get a double thickness. And it will cover the yarn ends on the wrong side of the chicken face.
