"Just like a real chick, this amigurumi chick nestles quite nicely in the palm of your hand! If you use aran-weight yarn and a 4.0mm hook, the chick will come out to 3 in (7.6 cm) tall. For experienced crocheters, this chick takes under an hour to work up.This pattern is written in US terminology, and crocheted in the round."

  1. 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.

  2. Rnd 2: inc x 6 (12 sts)

  3. Rnd 3: [sc, inc] x 6 (18 sts)

  4. Rnd 4: [inc, 2 sc] x 6 (24 sts)

  5. 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.

  6. Rnd 6: [5 sc, inc] x 4 (28 sts)

  7. Rnd 7-9: 28 sc (28 sts)

  8. Rnd 10: [6 sc, inc] x 4 (32 sts)

  13. Rnd 16: 16 sc (16 sts)

  14. 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.

  15. Rnd 17: dec x 8 (8 sts)

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