Crochet yellow baby chick pattern

Materials:

  • F – 3.75 mm crochet hook
  • Medium Worsted weight (#4) yarn
  • I used :
  • Red heart yarn in yellow and orange for the beak
  • Black/Brown Embroidery Floss for the eyes
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors
  • Stitch markers (highly recommend this extra piece of yarn works great)
  • Poly-fil – I use the one for doll making
  • (Optional) Pins to help with arms placement.
  • (Optional) Blush or paint for the cheeks. Add a little at a time.

Abbreviations: 

Stitches:

CHchain

ST – stitch (stitch space)

Sl Stslip stitch

SC – single crochet

HDC – half double crochet

SC INC – single crochet increase (2 sc in the same st)

SC DEC – single crochet decrease – (insert hook through the next st, yarn over, insert hook into next st, yarn over, 3 loops in the hook. yarn over and pull through all three loops.)

INV DEC – invisible SC decrease ( decrease using FLO)

FLO – front loop only

Other:

F.O: fasten off

MC – magic circle / magic ring

Read Before beginning:

  • STITCH MARKER – You will be working in rounds so keep a stitch marker close to use when working up the doll. Unless otherwise stated to CH and turn. They will mark the 1st st of each round.
  • TENSION – Make sure you use a tight enough tension to help close any “holes” a loose tension may cause. I crochet yarning under then Over to create a tighter stitch. Go down a hook size if needed. ( my tension is naturally tight)
  • ASSEMBLY – Body, and head are worked in one piece. Beak, arms, are separate but work up pretty quickly. 
  • STUFFING – When using poly-fil make sure to use it to shape your amigurumi. For this one, you want the body and head a bit dense so it keeps its shape and looks fuller.
  • BLUSH (OPTIONAL)- This is optional but you could also use blush to add some sweetness to the cheeks. I use cosmetic grade blush using a dense small brush and little at a time.
  • Pattern- (EX. *SC in 8, INV DEC in the next. Repeat from * to the end. (36) ) You will end that round with the second step of what that round instructs. This will vary.
Pattern START HERE – With main color + poly-fil (Fill in as you go)

CHAIN 10

You will be working on the opposite side of the chains to complete the first round.

Round 1 – SC in 8, SC 3x in the next, SC in 7, SC 2x in the last chain space. (20) DO NOT JOIN, Keep working in the round.

Rounds 2 – 9 – SC in every st to the end of the round. (20) 8 rounds total. – Start stuffing poly-fil here.

Round 10 – *SC in 2, INV DEC in the next. Repeat from * to the end. (15)

Round 11 – *SC in 1, INV DEC in the next. Repeat from * to the end. (10)

Starting to shape the head.

Round 12 – SC INC in each st till the end of the round. (20)

Round 13 – *SC in 1, SC INC in the next. Repeat from * to the end. (30)

Rounds 14 – 19 – SC in every st to the end of the round. (30) 6 rounds total.

[Make sure to stuff the neck with enough poly-fil to help keep the neck sturdy to hold the head :)]

Round 20 – *SC in 4, INV DEC in the next. Repeat from * to the end. (25)

Round 21 – *SC in 3, INV DEC in the next. Repeat from * to the end. (20)

Round 22 – *SC in 2, INV DEC in the next. Repeat from * to the end. (15)

Round 23 – *SC in 1, INV DEC in the next. Repeat from * to the end. (10)  insert more stuffing if needed. Before closing.  You really want it to be rounded. 

SlSt in the next st and fasten off leaving a long tail just enough to thread your needle, and weave through the front loops of the remaining 10 stitches to close the top of the head. pull to close the center. After weaving, secure with a knot, insert the needle in the center where the hole was then exiting a few rounds down and pull enough to make the top of the head smooth, and weave in the end inside the head with your hook.

Beak – Make 1 – with orange

CHAIN 3

Sl ST in the 2nd chain from the hook and HDC in the last chain.

Fasten off and leave a small tail enough to sew on the chick’s face. In the center between rounds 17 and 18 of the chick’s head.

Wings – Make 2 with the main color – [You will be working in rows, chaining 1 and turning after each one.]

Make a slip knot, leaving a long tail enough to sew the wing to the side of the baby chick.

CHAIN 5

Row 1 – SC in the 2nd chain from the hook and the remaining 3 chains. (4) CH 1, turn.

Row 2 – 3 – SC in every st to the end. (4) CH 1, turn.

Row 4 – SC DEC 2 times. (2)

Row 5 – SC DEC. (1)

Fasten off. You ended with the right side facing you. Weave in the end in the back of the wing.

Eyes:

For the eyes, I created a “^” as shown in the picture. Feel free to do any other kinds you’d prefer 🙂

Add some blush right underneath the eyes for some extra sweetness. 🙂
