Pattern

Note: Ch 1 doesn’t count as st going forward.

  • Ch 4 and SL ST to the BEG Ch to form a ring (you can use a magic circle here instead for this step if you prefer.)
  • Rnd 1: Ch 1, then SC 7 times around ring, SL ST at the end to the top of the BEG Ch 1. (7st)
  • Rnd 2: Ch 1, then 2 SC into the same joining stitch and in each st around, SL ST at the end to the top of the BEG Ch 1  (14st)
  • Rnd 3: Ch 1, 1 SC into the same joining stitch, 2 SC in next st, repeat around, SL ST at the end  to the top of the BEG Ch 1 (21st)
  • Rnd 4: *Ch 1, 1 SC into the same joining stitch and in each st around, SL ST at the end to the top of the BEG CH 1**, repeat from * to ** for rounds 5-9  (21st)
  • Rnd 10:  Ch 1, *1 SC into the next 2 st then 2sctog over the next 2 st**, repeat  from * to ** around, (note you will only have 1 SC to make after last dec in the round) SL ST at the end to the top of the BEG Ch 1 (16 st)
  • Rnd 11: *Ch 1, 1 SC into the same joining stitch and in each st around, SL ST at the end to the top of the BEG Ch 1**, repeat from * to ** for rounds 12 and 13 (16st)
  • Rnd 14: RSC around, tie off, weave in end.

Wings: (Make 2)

Make a slip knot…Leave a tail long enough to use for attaching the wing to chick later.

  • 1: Ch 3
  • 2:  4 DC into 3rd Ch from Hook (Ch 3 and 4 DC equal 5 DC)
  • 3:  3 Tr into same 3rd chain from the hook that the previous Dc are made in
  • 4:  SL ST at end of last Tr,  Tie off leaving a long tail for attaching later…
  • 5:  Weave finishing tail back through the last Tr to meet the other starting tail…Tie a secure knot but make it loose enough to maintain the shape of the wing..slightly pull the end of the wing to shape if needed.

Attaching Wings

Using your crochet hook or darning needle pull both yarn ends thru the side of chick, turn chick inside out, pull one yarn end over a stitch or 2 without going thru to the other side, then tie a secure knot using both yarn ends…Do the same for other wing.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
