Knit Em Up Chicken KCAL

POST UPDATE: See below to find out how to join us before the end of the month and enter our draw for Knit-/Crochet-Along prizes!


Do you have a Backyard Chicken that you have been saving for a rainy day? Or have you been eyeing one of these Hue Loco beauties but haven’t made the leap yet? Join us for a casual knit along (KAL) to get these gorgeous birdy yarns onto your needles and into your 2021 FOs (finished objects)!




Our lovely neighbour, Hilary Atleo of Iron Dog Books and I have decided to cast on our chicken yarn and egg each other onwards towards completion. This yarn is so pleasant to knit because every stitch gifts you with a new colour/shade. In the past have finished complete projects (two shawls and a pair of socks) with these sets in just over a week, and that is our aim for this KAL! We both have two sets of chickens we plan to work on over the next few weeks, so join us if you wish and we can celebrate together!


Check out this great photo essay Hilary posted yesterday on Instagram:



Pick up your favorite chicken set here, and cast on a Downhome Shawl, a pair of socks or just play with us using the free skeleton shawl pattern by Stephan West, The Boneyard Shawl, which allows for your own adornments of playing with lace or colour segments! Email us at baaadannas@gmail.com if you want to join in; And stay tuned for updates as we go!




We now have a place to chat and enter our draw for prizes in the Baaad Anna’s Ravelry thread:


We’re keeping it simple: cast on, or finish a project with a Hue Loco Backyard Chicken set, and post a photo in the CHICKEN PHOTOS NO CHATTY thread (one post per chicken), we will do a RNG (random number generator) draw for prize winners at the end of February.


If you need help adding your entry to Ravelry, email us a photo with your name and phone number at baaadannas@gmail.com and we can post it for you.


No other rules: play fair (ie. put some good amount of stitches into the project), share progress photos in our Ravelry Knit Em Up CHickens KCAL thread, and enjoy the chicken knits!
