Easter Chick Appliqué

Easter chick appliqué crochet pattern

Thanks for checking out my 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! If you love appliques as much as me check out my appliqués page to find more free crochet patterns.

Easter chick appliqué description

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 it’s made

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.

sc – single crochet

hdc – half double crochet

dc – double crochet

tr – treble crochet

sc2tog – decrease (single crochet 2 together)

2sc/2hdc/2dc/2tr – increase (2 stitches in one space)

Gauge / tension

Gauge is important as everyone crochets with a different tension. Therefore, if your 2” swatch doesn’t match up you can change your hook size to suit your tension.

4mm hook – 2” x 2” = 11 rows of 9 hdc

Finished size

11cm wide x 12cm high

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.
