Egg cosey

Found the pattern to make this little chick cosy for hiding a chocolate egg this morning and knitted it up during Annas' nap. Will thought it was very dubious and looked more like a duck, he was very keen to eat the egg I bought to check it fitted though.
To knit use 3.25m needles. Cast on 24 sts K 2 rows. Inc 1 stitch at beg of each row until you have 36 sts. K 2 more rows. Cast off 11 stitches at beg of next 2 rows. K 12 rows. k2tog across row. Thread wool through remaining 7 sts and sew up chick leaving enough room to fit egg up it's bum! Decorate with felt beak and little eyes.
