Baby Chick Pattern

Posted on: March 10, 2015

Easter is coming! Here is a tutorial to make a really cute baby chick to decorate your house for Easter. This little bird is 3 inch tall and crocheted with a 2.75mm hook. You will need yellow, and off white/cream yarn to make this plush, and some orange felt. I used 6mm safety eyes, but you can also choose to just glue some black felt or embroider them with yarn.
