Spring Chick Amigurumi

-This post is sponsored by Fairfield World, all ideas and opinions are my own-


I can't believe that March is just a few days away and that means that spring is right around the corner. We have had some nice spring-ish days lately and that has made me really excited for spring. Of course this morning we got several inches of snow so obviously the spring weather is not yet here to stay. When I think of spring I think of Easter and everything that is associated with that, bunnies and chicks, carrots and Easter baskets, etc. I decided to make a couple little crochet projects for spring. I made a little baby chick and a carrot. Today I will be sharing the baby chick pattern and the carrot will be available on the Fairfield World site in a couple of days.



The idea for this little chick actually came from an Easter project I made a couple of years ago, Easter egg covers that fit over plastic eggs. I thought they were a really fun project to make and this chick is based off of the the little chick that I made as part of that set. I made the shape similar but made it bigger and stuffed it and closed off the bottom. I added a little face, wings and feet to finish.

You will need:

  • worsted weight yarn in yellow and orange (I used Lion Brand DIYarn in yellow and Red Heart Super Saver in Pumpkin)
