For extra spring-y goodness, you could also use Universal Yarns Cotton Supreme Batik, gorgeously variegated to produce fabulous patterns. This yarn is particularly suited to small housewares and toys, just like these eggs! We love Watermelon Patch (027),  Cotton Candy (034), and Mint Flower (037).

These little chicks are knit flat and seamed up and filled with plastic beans or popcorn kernels to give them some weight. To create Esther, Ernie, and Enid, you’ll need one ball each of Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK yarn in Sunshine (688),  Zinc (681), Lake (696), and Candy (695), as seen here.

This cute little ducky certainly fits the bill – why don’t you take a quack at it? It’s knitted flat in two pieces, body and head, and seamed together. Don’t let the fickle weather of spring get your goose – knit this duck instead, using Robin DK yarn in Acid Yellow (060), Jaffa (163), and Brown (079), as seen here!
