    Easter chick appliqué description

    How cute is this Easter chick applique crochet pattern? With Easter fast approaching I couldn’t resist designing a crochet chick applique. If you follow my blog you probably know I’m currently working on a patchwork blanket for my daughters. I plan to fill each square with a different appliqués until I have a big blanket full of the things they love most. A Cute Easter chick just had to be included!

    The crochet chick appliqué measures 11cm wide by 12cm tall. I made my chick in traditional yellow and orange. The Easter chicks head, body, wings, eyes, cheeks and feet are made in separate pieces giving the applique a more of a 3D effect. He has cute little facial features and a tuft of hair to add character. You can use your crochet Easter chick appliqué to brighten up almost any of your crochet projects. Chicks are not just popular for Easter creations but can be used all year round too.

    How to crochet an Easter chick applique

    The Easter chick applique crochet pattern is easy skill level. You’ll need to know basic crochet stitches, simple increases/decreases and know how to work into a magic ring. The crochet pattern also requires some basic sewing and tapestry. To make the crochet chick appliqué I used 4 colours of DK (weight 3) yarn and a 4mm crochet hook. I also used 6mm safety eyes on my bunny, don’t worry if you don’t have any you could just use some yarn and a tapestry needle to create some. The whole appliqué uses just 10g (31yds) of yarn.

    Pattern notes

    • I do not count chains in my stitch count.
    • Numbers in brackets are the number of rows/stitches.
    • Stitches separated with a comma are to be made in separate spaces. eg. (sc, inc) would mean sc in first stitch then inc in next stitch. eg. (sc x 2, inc) would mean sc in first stitch, sc in second stitch, then inc in next stitch.
    • When fastening off leave a long tail for sewing if you are attaching the appliqué to something. If you are not sewing the appliqué to anything weave in ends.
