Picture of Crazy Chick

This little Amigurumi Chick is only 3.5" tall from the tip off his toes to the top of his tufty head.  I designed this Crazy Chick to fit inside one of those plastic Easter Eggs (a bit of fun when he's discovered on an egg hunt!).  My plastic eggs are 3" tall and Crazy Chick fits in easily.  He's very quick to make so it wouldn't take long to crochet up a pile of crazy chicks!

In true Amigurumi style, Crazy Chick has a much smaller Body than his head (adds to the cuteness!)

Begin with a magic ring or just chain two and work the first round into the second chain from the hook

Round 2:     Do 2sc into each stitch below   (10)

Round 3:     [2sc into next stitch,  then do 1 sc] x5     (15)

SO Cute... and I'm pretty confident this project qualifies for Scooch's Egg Challenge,  too! ;-)

Just copy/paste the URL to this instructable into the comment section... and good luck!

It can't qualify for the egg challenge because it was posted before the contest started but I agree this is so cute.
Darn... for some reason I thought it was published the 2nd. ;-(
