Free Baby Chicken crochet pattern

Learn how to crochet a very cute baby chicken with this easy and fast to make free crochet pattern.
This pattern is very suitable for beginners that want to learn how to crochet an amigurumi.
You can make the chicken in any yarn that you like. I made it in cotton and chenille yarn, the cotton one is very small, the chenille one is much larger, two different chickens with the same pattern.

If you want to crochet a big plush toy within a few hours, use big chunky yarn and crochet hook and you will have made a cute gift very fast! Perfect pattern for easter.

There is a full free video on how to create this chick here:

Materials:

These are the materials that I used. You can replace them with other materials. If you wish to make a larger or smaller version of this chick, you can just use a thicker or thinner yarn/crochet hook.

Small baby chicken: 6 cm / 2,5 inch
Big baby chicken: 18 cm / 7 inch

Yellow cotton – catania color: 208
Orange Cotton – catania color: 281
Brown Cotton – catania color: 157
Synthetic Poly filling
1 pair black safety eyes: 8 mm

The big baby chicken (18 cm / 8 inch) was made with chenille yarn (super bulky), 5.0 mm hook and 15 mm safety eyes.

TIP Chenille/Velvet or other similar yarn: The body of the chicken might look a bit to oval when crocheting it, don’t worry about it, it will be fine when you put stuffing in it.
