Written Pattern Notes

You will first crochet the body and head, then the face, wings, and feet. Then you will sew it together.

Crochet Baby Chick Body & Head

Written Pattern:

R1: Magic Ring and add 8 sc, close ring (use stitch marker as you’re crocheting continuous rounds)

R2: 2 sc per st

R3: *1 sc, 2 sc in the next st, repeat from * until the end of the round

R4 – 10: 1 sc per st

R11: *1 sc, 1 inv sc dec, repeat from * until the end of the round

R12: *1 sc in the next 2 sts, 1 inv sc dec, repeat from * until the end of the round

R13: *1 sc in the next 2 sts, 2 sc in the next st, repeat from * until the end of the round

R14 – 16: 1 sc per st

Stuff the body and part of the head, add the plastic eyes between the 15th and 16th row and 2 sts apart

R17: 1 inv sc dec all around

Stuff the head more, then close the hole (weave through each front loop and pull), weave in your ends

Crochet Peak

MR, ch 1, 4 sc, pull hole/ring closed, sl st to the first st, squish circle into oval (stitch 1 and 2 will touch, so will 3 and 4)
Sew peak 1 row below centered between the eyes

Crochet Feet (make 2)

R1: ch 4, starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, 1 sc per st, turn (3 sts)

R2: 1 sc per st, turn

R3: 1 sc dec, 1 sc, fasten off

Sew both feet to the bottom of the chick’s body

Crochet Wings (make 2)

R1: MR, ch 1, 6 sc into ring, use a stitch marker for continuous rounds

R2: *1 sc, 2 sc in the next st, repeat from * until the end

R3 – 5: 1 sc per st, fasten off

Sew both wings 180 degrees apart from each other flat (unstuffed) to the side of the chick

Hair & Tail

Do the same for the hair and tail (just different locations).

1. Cut 3 pieces of yarn 3-4 inches long each, fold each one in half.

2. Insert a hook into the area where you want the hair/tail, pull one folded yarn piece half way through, then pull the 2 yarn ends through the pulled through loop, and pull to attach the yarn tightly (see the video for a close up of this process).

3. Repeat this step 2 more times such that you have 6 pieces of yarn standing up per hair or tail then trim depending how long you want your hair or tail to be.

Now your Baby Chick Amigurumi is complete!
