Cute Chick Amigurumi — Free crochet pattern

Hi all!

I constantly write down my ideas for new toys: in notebooks and just on sheets of paper (it seems to me that all crafters do this, right?). As a result drawings can be found all over the house. Recently, I came across sketches for cute birds, and decided it was time to bring ideas to life)


So this pattern was born. I think this little chicken turned out absolutely charming.
I hope you will like it)

This is what you need to make Amigurumi Chick:
— Fine weight yarn;
— 2.5 mm crochet hook;
— Some brown lace yarn for eyes;
— Soft stuffing;
— Yarn needle, sewing needle, scissors;
If you prefer to work continuously, you should use a stitch marker.

Note:
You can use this pattern to make larger or smaller toy by using finer or bulkier yarn.
Don’t forget to choose the right hook size (I recommend you to pick crochet hook one size smaller than suggested on your yarn label, so you will get more tightly fabric).

Once you finished leave yourself a long tail. Thread your needle with the tail, insert the needle under back loop of your stitch, pull through, repeat in every next sc until you’ve made it all the way around. Pull the yarn until you have tightly closed the hole. Fasten off and weave in tail.
