Chicken Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Oct 19, 2019



If you liked the Baby Pinguin project I wrote about a couple of weeks ago, you definitely cannot miss this last blog post!


I've been so happy to receive so many great comments and feedbacks on the pattern of the baby penguin in the past days. Its cuteness and chubbiness have won anyone over...plus it is a super easy project!


For this reason I decided to use the same design to create a new amigurumi little friend...this week we learn how to crochet a cute 5 inches Chicken!
