Crochet Pattern: Chick Easter FavorBy Emilee Gettle – 2 Comments
|My family and I live on a farm. Each spring I eagerly await our baby chicks to arrive in the mail. It is so fun to receive the box from the post office filled with tiny fluffs peeping away. Occasionally we hatch our own birds and it’s my daughter’s favorite time of the day when it comes time to check on the incubators. Regardless of where you live, in the country, on a farm, or in the heart of downtown you can crochet your own baby chick. This project is great for upcoming Easter celebrations. Don’t forget to add a few treats and trinkets inside the pocket.|

Using a needle and orange embroidery floss, stitch a triangular, orange, felt beak onto the chick’s body. Then, sew on the two button eyes. Using yellow yarn and a yarn needle, whip stitch one wing onto the chick’s body. Then, sl st both body pieces together, leaving an opening at the top, level with the chick’s eyes. Before you are finished joining the two pieces, be sure to slip in the other wing and continue to sl st around, catching the wing as you go. Weave in any loose ends.
