Amigurumi crochet chick

I’d been curious about the amigurumi style of crochet for some time but had put it off as it looked too difficult for the crochet novice that I am. Though I had pinned a few ideas ready for when I did feel adventurous enough to give it a try. I decided to try this cute chick, as the description said it’d take about an hour to make – in my view that meant easy.

Cute little chicks

It is a continuous double crochet spiral-style pattern which was fairly easy for me. I did underestimate the size of the chick… The pattern makes for a tiny chick and therefore it was very fiddly for my sausage fingers! I’ve mentioned in some of my previous crochet posts that I’m not great at reading crochet patterns, and I’m still not great at it. I did go wrong on this pattern and ended up with more of a snowman-shaped chick than a duck-shape as in the Pinterest photo. The beak also came out a bit wonky, though overall for a first attempt at amigurumi, it wasn’t a disaster.

Oh and I didn’t have enough yellow yarn, so went for a different colour scheme!
