Step 3: The Comb or topknot
My favorite is fancy fur yarn. Extremely messy but great attitude! I started using fancy fur because that what I had laying around at the time, so look around & maybe try sometime else. Improvising is the way to creativity. Wrap 10 times around a 1-3/4” wide card for 2 topknots. Adding metallic embroidery thread for 2 or 3 wraps adds to the attitude. Gently slide wrapped yarn off card & under your pressure foot, stitch across and back a few times. Zigzag works even better, but Matilda doesn’t do the zigzag.. lol. Sew well to top corner of body square approx. 1/2 inch from corner.
Stitch across to stablize
Attach to chicken body, use other half for another chicken
