Introduction: Chicken Amigurumi

Picture of Chicken Amigurumi

I wanted to make a cute little amigurumi in time for spring. This time of year always reminds me of a farm so I went with a chicken. I wanted the pattern to be fairly simple so I could share with other who are just learning how to crochet.

For this pattern you will need
Worsted Weight yarn in white, orange, yellow, and red
Crochet hook size G
Scissors and yarn needle
Black embroidery thread and embroidery needle
Polyester Fiberfill

Please do not post this pattern on other websites or personal blogs. You may not sell this pattern or pass it off on your own- that is stealing. Create as many chickens as you like for friends, family, and charities, but please do not sell items made from my pattern. Thank you
