"2017 is the year of the chicken. You can use this granny square as a dish cloth, or as a part of a blanket. It's easy to make, and does not take much time to finish. Measurements of the square: approx. 15.5 cm X 15.5 cm / 6.1 inch X 6.1 inch. I used Kartopu Bebe yarn 100 % acrylic (50 g / 150 mt) in colors K019, K322, K331, K150, with a hook size 4.5 mm. The tutorial is written in American Terminology."

Chicken? I love it! I have made a lot of different animal squares in my 50 years of crocheting, but never made a chicken square. I would like to make an afghan for my grand kids using animal squares. They can try naming each one. It can be a fun afghan for all four of them.

So, I learned something new today from this blog. That 2017 is the year of the chicken. I do love chicken. Not really sure what I would do with this chicken pattern but my guess is that it would be perfect in a kitchen setting. So probably a dishcloth, pot holder, or hot pad cozy.

A bunch of these squares would make an adorable Flock of Chickens pillow, or even a small afghan. Its a little hard to tell from the photos, but the chickens beak is worked in relief. The designer takes the crafter through every step with excellent photos and text descriptions. In the comments, the designer also gives instructions about how to enlarge the square to dishcloth size.

I was just curious because I wasn't sure about what a group of chickens were called so I just had to ask Google. You are correct Jane. It is a flock of chickens lol.
