Baby Chick – Free Crochet Pattern

What you will need:

Here is what you will need:

  • Berroco Comfort Worsted Weight Yarn in two colours.  I used:
    • Color A: Buttercup (approx. 150 yards)
    • Color B: Kidz Orange (approx. 50 yards)
  • Size G (4.0 mm) Crochet Hook
  • Safety Eyes or buttons (if you are making this for a very small child it is safest to embroider on the eyes).
  • Scissors
  • Stitch Marker or scrap piece of yarn
  • Poly-Fil for stuffing the bunny
  • Yarn or tapestry needle to sew the pieces together

Finished Size:

Approximately 6 inches top to bottom.

Abbreviations:

SC: Single Crochet

ST: Stitch

SC2Tog: Single Crochet Two Together

Notes Before you Start:

  1. I worked my single crochets in the back loop to make it easier to count my rows and I personally just like the way it looks.
  2. Work your rounds in spirals, do not join at the beginning of each round.   You will need to use a stitch marker to mark your rounds.
  3. Each round has the total number of stitches for the round in brackets.  If you are unsure its always a good idea to count your stitches.
