Chick | Baby Bird Amigurumi - Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Mar 6

Hello, hi & welcome back! I'm so excited to share my Chick | Baby Bird Amigurumi free crochet pattern with you! These adorable little chicks make the perfect Easter Basket fillers and are so quick to whip up!



Each crocheted chick is comprised of the body base which is worked in the round, the nose, and the wings which are attached using a tapestry needle. The body is stuffed with fiberfill. The finished baby birds measure approximately 3 inches tall by 3 inches wide. You can easily create a larger chick by using a larger yarn and hook size.

Yarn Colors:

I receive many questions regarding the specific yarn colors I use for my projects! Oftentimes, I use leftover colors in my yarn stash that I have lost the labels for or have acquired secondhand without labels, so I apologize if I cannot list them all each time! Below are the specific brands/colors I do know for this particular pattern!

  • I Love This Yarn in the color 'Light Peach'

  • I Love This Yarn in the color 'Ocean'

  • Burnt Orange (I know it's I Love This Yarn, but I don't have the color name!)

  • Yellow (I know it's Red Heart Super Saver, but I don't have the color name!)

Crochet Chick Beak:

With Burnt Orange Yarn, chain 4

Row 1: slip stitch, chain 1, HDC, chain 1, slip stitch, chain 1

Tie off with a long enough tail to attach to the chick.


Crochet Chick Body Base:

Round 1: In a magic circle, SC 6, pull tight (6 stitches)


Round 2: 2 SC in each stitch (12 stitches)


Round 3: 2 SC in the first, SC in the next* (18 stitches)


Round 4: 2 SC in the first, SC in the next 2* (24 stitches)


Round 5: 2 SC in the first, SC in the next 3* (30 stitches)


Rounds 6-18: SC in each stitch (30 stitches)

Pause for face and embellishments



Fuzz on Top of the Head:

Using a tapestry needle, pull the tail from the magic circle up through the inside and out the top of the magic circle. Trim to the desired length and unravel the yarn strands to create the fuzzy look.


Safety Eyes:

Attach the safety eyes between the 11th and 12th rows with 7 stitches in between.



Beak:

Using your tapestry needle, stitch on the beak one row below and in between the eyes. To create the 3-D look, only stitch down the top of the beak (which will be the 4 base chain stitches of the beak).


Stuffing:

At this point we will also add our Polyfil stuffing. We want a nice plump baby bird without overstuffing. We don't want to see the stuffing bulging through the stitches. Remember, you can always add a bit more stuffing right before closing off.


Round19: SC dec, SC in the next 3* (24 stitches)


Round 20: SC dec, SC in the next 2* (18 stitches)


Round 21: SC dec, SC in the next stitch* (12 stitches)



Round 22: SC dec 6 times (6 stitches)


Chain 1, tie off with a medium tail (long enough to weave in).


Using a tapestry needle and the tail, stitch up the remaining opening and weave in the end.



Crochet Chick Wings (make 2):

Round 1: In a magic circle, SC 6, pull tight (6 stitches)


Round 2: 2 SC in the first, SC in the next stitch* (9 stitches)


Round 3: 2 SC in the first, SC in the next 2 stitches* (12 stitches)



Rounds 4-5: SC in each stitch (12 stitches)


Slip stitch, chain 1, tie off with a long tail


Use the tail from the magic circle to stitch the opening closed (the wing will be flat).


Use the long tail to and your tapestry needle to attach the wings to the sides of the chick. I like to place one stitch through the body, then one stitch through the wing and repeat.
