I made this chicken in just two sittings, which is pretty good for me. It's done on regular needles. I wouldn't have attempted her with double-pointed needles. It's cool to see something 'flat' take shape!

I used a larger hook and size 4 yarn and left off the 'tail.' She could be a package topper or, if I stiffen her up a bit, an ornament.
Santa comes from "Simply Crochet" magazine, which is a UK publication. He's about 8 inches tall. I used a larger hook and size 4 yarn here. Looking at the picture, I can see I have to put some kind of trim around the hat! The pattern provides that but I wasn't liking the way it looked. I think some extra bulky yarn would do the trick.
