Chick Amigurumi Toy Crochet Pattern 1

Materials

These are the exact materials I used to create the penguin.

Rather not assemble the materials yourself? Buy a Chick Crochet Kit instead.

Notes

This pattern is written in US terminology, and crocheted in the round.

While pins are optional, they are recommended since it makes it much easier to plan and sew on the amigurumi pieces,

If you use worsted-weight yarn and a 4.0mm hook, the chick will come out to 3 in (7.6 cm) tall. Just like a real chick, it’ll nestle quite nicely in the palm of your hand!

Terminology

  • sc: single crochet
  • inc: increase stitch (2 sc in the same stitch)
  • dec: (invisible) decrease
  • magic loop: also known as a magic ring
  • rnd: round
  • [sc, inc] x 3: 1 sc followed by 1 inc, repeated 3 times
  • (6 sts): 6 total stitches in the round

Pattern

Head & Body

Use yellow yarn.

Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic loop (6 sts)

⚠️To keep track of where you are, use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of each rnd. Each time you start a new rnd, move the stitch marker to the first stitch of that rnd.

Rnd 2: inc x 6 (12 sts)
Rnd 3: [sc, inc] x 6 (18 sts)
Rnd 4: [inc, 2 sc] x 6 (24 sts)
Rnd 5: 24 sc (24 sts)

⚠️Your work might start curling at this point. For a neater final look, flip it inside out so that the “right side” faces out.

Rnd 6: [5 sc, inc] x 4 (28 sts)
Rnd 7-9: 28 sc (28 sts)
Rnd 10: [6 sc, inc] x 4 (32 sts)
Rnd 11-12: 32 sc (32 sts)
Rnd 13: [2 sc, dec] x 8 (24 sts)
Rnd 14: 24 sc (24 sts)
Rnd 15: [sc, dec] x 8 (16 sts)
Rnd 16: 16 sc (16 sts)

Insert the safety eyes between Rnds 8 & 9, with 5 stitches between them. If this toy is for a baby or pet, embroider the eyes instead. Stuff your piece, shaping it like an egg.

Rnd 17: dec x 8 (8 sts)

Fasten off. To close the remaining gap, use a tapestry needle to sew through the front loops of each stitch in a clockwise order.

Beak

Use orange yarn.

Rnd 1: 4 sc in magic loop (4 sts)
Rnd 2: [sc, inc] x 2 (6 sts)

Fasten off with a long tail. Don’t stuff. Flatten and attach the beak at Rnd 10, centered between the eyes.

Wings

Use yellow yarn. Make two.

Rnd 1: 4 sc in magic loop (4 sts)
Rnd 2: inc x 4 (8 sts)
Rnd 3: 8 sc, ch (9 sts)

Fasten off with a long tail. Don’t stuff. Flatten the wing and slip stitch the opening closed.

Hook inserted in 2 stitches across from each other
1. Flatten wing, and insert hook under the first 2 stitches across from each other. Slip stitch.
Finished wing slip stitched across
2. Continue to slip stitch together the next 3 pairs of stitches. This is what it should look like at the end. Fasten off.

Attach the wings at Rnd 11, right below the beak.
