By: Shena Hicks from amigurumibyknotty@blogspot.com

This is an easy crochet pattern that works up fast. Make this cute chick for any occasion. Lion Brand Jiffy yarn is used for a soft touch.

Materials:

  • 1 skein of Lion Brand Yarn Jiffy brushed 2ply yarn in Oat for beak and feet
  • 1 skein of Lion Brand Yarn Jiffy brushed 2ply yarn in Lemon for body
  • Crochet Hook 3.00mm
  • Stitch marker
  • Poly-fill
  • Yarn needle
  • One pair of 12mm safety eyes

Finished Measurements:
4 inches tall

Abbreviations used in this pattern:
ch chain
sc single crochet
sts stitches
dec decrease a stitch (*insert hook into next st, yarn over, draw up a loop* twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.)
*repeat directions inside * as many times as indicated

A Note on Gauge: The crochet fabric needs to be tight, so if you change yarn weight, make sure you use a hook size that is at least 2 sizes smaller than the label of the yarn calls for. This pattern is worked in continuous rounds. Do not join rounds. Use a stitch marker to mark the end of each round.

Step 1: Beak
With beak color create a slip ring. Sc in ring to join. Sc 6 additional times in ring. (6)
Round 1 – 4 sc in each sc around (12)
Leave a length of yarn to sew beak to body. Lightly stuff the beak with poly-fill.

Step 2: Head/Body
With body color create a slip ring. Sc in ring to join. Sc 6 additional times in ring. (6)
Round 1 – 2 sc in each sc around (12)
Round 2 *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc* around (18)
Rounds 3 – 8 sc in each sc around (18)
Round 9 *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 2 sts* around (24)
Stuff the Head. Sew on beak. Place safety eyes on either side of the beak about one stitch away and secure with backs.
Round 10 *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 3 sts* around (30)
Round 11 *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 4 sts* around (36)
Round 12 *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 5 sts* around (42)
Rounds 13 – 16 sc in each sc around (42)
Round 17 *1 dec, 1 sc in next 5 sts* around (36)
Round 18 *1 dec, 1 sc in next 4 sts* around (30)
Round 19 *1 dec, 1 sc in next 3 sts* around (24)
Round 20 *1 dec, 1 sc in next 2 sts* around (18)
Round 21*1 dec, 1 sc in next sc* around (12)
Round 22 *1 dec, 1 sc in next sc* around (8)
Cut a length of yarn about 6 or so inches long, just enough to sew the hole closed. Thread a needle and weave the needle in and out of the eight stitches of round 22 and pull hole closed. Weave in lose end of yarn.

Step 3: Feet make 2
Ch 4 (from this point on you will work in rounds)
Round 1 – 2 sc in first ch, 1 sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next sc, now you will be working on the opposite side of the chain, sc in the remaining sts. (10)
Rounds 2-6 sc in each sc around (10)
Leave a length of yarn to sew foot to body. Sew the opening of foot closed. DO NOT STUFF. Next, sew the foot securely to the body across the end and then sew across the foot again around where the belly rounds to meet the feet. This will keep the feet close to the body and stop them from flopping. If you prefer your chick to have floppy feet, only sew along the back of the feet.
