Crochet Pattern: Chick Easter Favor

By Emilee Gettle – 4 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.

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 4 1/4″ (11 cm) long and 6″ (15 cm) wide (including outstretched “wing”)

Yellow Medium Weight Yarn (approximately 100 yards)
Crochet Hook H (5.00 mm)
Yarn Needle
Orange Felt
Orange Embroidery Floss
2 Black 1/2″ Buttons

crochet yarn size 4

5 dc = 1” (3 cm)
1 row = 1/2″ (1 cm)

Crochet Pattern: Chick Easter Favor

Chick Body (make 2)
Round 1: ch 5, sl st in first ch made to form a ring, ch 2, 12 dc into ring, sl st in top of beginning ch-2: 12 dc
Round 2-3: ch 2, 2 dc in each dc around, sl st in top of beginning ch-2
Finish off.

Chick’s Wings (make 2)
Row 1: ch 14, sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across: 13 sc
Finish off.

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.

    Wow, what a cute chick :o) I’m trying to make one but I don’t know what this means “sl st in top of beginning ch-2: 12 dc”. (I do know what “sl st” and “12dc”.)

    Would you lease help me with this?

      Hi Sami,
      “sl st” is the abbreviation for slip stitch. So you’ll make a slip stitch into the top of the beginning chain-2 that you made at the beginning of the round. The “12 dc” that is after the colon, is the stitch count for the round. So it’s just telling you that you’ll have a total of 12 double crochets when you’re done the round. You don’t have to make another 12 double crochets.
