We love to share free crochet patterns with you and Craft Alotl has come up with some more great designs for you. Today’s pattern is a perfect little free Easter Crochet Pattern or Spring Crochet Pattern. Though of course you can make it all year round. Let’s make some adorable amigurumi birds!

If you enjoy Craft Alotl’s work and want to show some support, you can get PDF versions of her patterns in her Ravelry store – a great way to get ad-free patterns that you print and store with your crochet yarns!

Supplies needed for this little crochet chick:

  • Yarn in your desired bird color and contrasting yarn scraps for the beak
  • A corresponding crochet hook to go with your yarn thickness
  • Safety eyes (though you can embroider the eyes too, or glue on little black felt discs)
  • Embroidery needles for assembly and beak
  • Stuffing (we like to recycle old cushions)

MM Hook size really is important for crochet – if your hook is too large, it will result in loose crochet that doesn’t look very neat! So if in doubt, use a slightly smaller crochet hook.

Crochet Abbreviations used to make these cute amigurumi birds:

We used American crochet terminology throughout. Also, we have a fantastic set of beginner crochet videos that you can browse at your leisure. These include everything from how to hold your yarn, to magic circles and how to do a half double crochet etc.

  • MC – Magic Circle (also known as magic ring)
  • Ch – Chain
  • SC – Single Crochet
  • Inc – Increase
  • Dec – Decrease
  • HDC – Half Double Crochet
  • Slst – Slip stitch (also seen as SS on other patterns)
