Corie the Little Chick Crochet

 

Corie the Little Chick Crochet is the first pattern of my crochet farm animal friends. It’s made before Easter. Because I wanted to give people an Easter treat, I decided to make a little chicken amigurumi. My daughter also enjoys playing with our chickens at home so it’s also a treat for her.

It’s small because I used a fingering yarn but you can easily make a huggable version if you’re going to use worsted-weight yarn and a G hook or 4mm hook.

Finished size: 6.5 inches if you’re going to use same yarn and hook

*Below, I put an N as the number of st moved in case the wings are not in the sides, which means your starting st has moved. Following the instructions below, subtract N to get the number of SCs you need to make before crocheting the wings. Note: You dont need to subtract anything if you’re starting st is only slightly to the left like in the photo. I marked a line so you can see where my starting sts are.

Finishing of R1 of SHORTS with a sl st.
