Crochet Chicken Pattern FREE EASY
Crocheting this EASY no-sew chicken amigurumi pattern with the  helpful Step-by-step photos that I have included and some extra amigurumi  tips to ensure your complete success in crocheting your own plushy chicken 

Chicken Crochet Pattern is NO SEW. HOWEVER, if you prefer to sew the eyes and beak on! you will need a yarn needle. 

This no-sew chicken pattern is written like amigurumi crochet patterns and you should note you work in continuous rounds. 

Is amigurumi suitable for beginners? amigurumi is simply the Japanese name for making toys, using a single crochet with tight close stitches. amigurumi has grown in popularity due to the easy nature of the written patterns.

I have crocheted the chicken in Worsted Weight using a 3.5mm hook and the height measured just over 4.5 inches tall and the Flutterby Chicken stands 7.25 inches tall. 

Can you crochet this chicken even though you have never done amigurumi before? 

There is only a very slight difference between regular crochet and amigurumi. Amigurumi patterns have less detail included and often look written in some cases like shorthand abbreviations. 

 When working in the amigurumi style of crochet I prefer to use,  YARN UNDER your hook instead of YARN OVER your hook.

The yarn under method, when used in amigurumi style crocheting, can produce neat firm stitches that resemble tiny Xs. In addition, and working yarn under can prevent the stuffing from showing through the gaps.  

How to Work the YARN UNDER Single Crochet Method

The Yarn Under method

  • put your Hook into the stitch, passing the yarn underneath by pulling through  (NOT YARN OVER Pull through as you would normally make at this step here)   Simply bring it to the front under the hook.
  • Thread the yarn through the opening. Your hook now has two loops on it.
  • To finish the single crochet stitch, yarn over and pull through both loops as you would normally.

Note: you may find you prefer to use a Yarn needle to sew the Beak and sew eyes on, I use my hook to pull the thread through and just knot the eyes to secure, Use your hook to pull through the loose ends of yarn and hide.

Materials you will need for Crocheting a Chicken

  • Yarn weight - I used James C Brett Flutterby Yarn. You can use any type of yarn compatible with a hook you have chosen to crochet the chicken top ruffle on the head I used a scrap of Aran weight yarn. 
  • Crochet Hooks Used - I used a 4.5 mm crochet hook for the Flutterby yarn  and I would recommend using either 1 or 2 down from the  recommended hook Size for your chosen yarn 
  • Stitch Markers (3)  - You will need the marker to keep track of Rounds, and also you will require 2 markers to mark the stitches when crocheting the Chicken's head. 
  • Stuffing Fibre Fill for ToysI buy my Stuffing in BULK from Amazon - HERE, When it comes to filling your chicken with stuffing make sure to shape the chicken 
  • OPTIONAL Safety EYES. You CAN use Saftey Eyes if You wish 
  • Alternative EYES - Yarn needle I just use black yarn for the eyes, Knot a couple of times over the knot you have just made, then Use your hook to pull through the loose ends of yarn and hide. 
  • Scissors

Abbreviations and Stitches Used to Crochet the Amigurumi Chicken 

  • Rnd = Round 
  • sc = Single Crochet 
  • sts = Stitches
  • dc-double Crochet 
  • sl st - Slip stitch
  • ( sts) number of stitches at ends of row  
  • * to * - Repeat the instructions between the asterisks
  • inc = 2sc = work 2 single crochet into the SAME space (INCREASE )
  • dec - sc2tog - Work 2 single crochet together (DECREASE) (to make an invisible decrease, insert hook into the front loop of BOTH stitches, YARN OVER HOOK and pull through the 2 front loops, continue to finish off stitch by yarn over pull through

NOTE: You do NOT NEED a magic ring to crochet this chicken at the start as I find they are hard to pull to tighten and can easily snap your yarn instead use a Ch2, and work ALL the Round 1 sts into the 

For adding features to the hen You will be 'Surface crocheting' simply by working into the posts and stitches already created by the  rows,

TO start the Chicken ch2, 

Rnd 1: work 8 sc into the first chain from hook (8 sts)

Continue working Sc2together (DECREACE) around, until you have 4 sts left. FASTEN OFF and weave in the end and pull to close. 

(IF you prefer ADD the safety eyes HERE, or continue and add eyes using black yarn later. 

SC into the FIRST 8 sts of the round, skip OVER to the second marker and work the FULL 16 sts stitches back to the FIRST 8th st marker  (16sts)

START STUFFING HERE, and BEFORE closing ensure you have enough stuffing and SHAPE you desire before closing completely 

At the bottom of the head (9th st from previous round) join yarn and slip stitch to join, working sl st to the end of the row)

Adding the Chicken Features

Create the Eyes as shown -  I use a French knot for the eyes 

How to make a French Knot -Thread the needle with yarn, and knot the end. 

Bring the needle up through the fabric where you want the knot to be
Hold the needle horizontally and wrap the yarn around the needle 3 or 4 times, (The more you wrap the bigger the knot/EYE will be ) 
insert the needle close to where you pulled up but not the same space, hold your fingers over the wrapped yarn to help ease into a knot, and pull to finish. repeat another side  

BEAK - Take a small amount of ORANGE or YELLOW for the BEAK, and sew directly over the front couple of stitches (Make sure this is the center of the head)

Chain 3, and working UP towards the TOP of the Chickens head, work 3dc into the next space, and ch2, sl st into same space to finish first ruffle,
2nd ruffle, ch3, 3dc into the next space, ch2, sl st, to same space to finihs 2nd ruffle
