I found these adorable little bean bag chicks on Gluesticks Blog and envisioned them as cute little Spring pets to decorate my kitchen. But since you already know I don’t drag my sewing machine out often, I decided to crochet them instead. And there was hatched (ha ha) this cute crochet chicken pattern.
Here’s what you will need:
- 3 colors worsted weight cotton yarn, small amount of black yarn or crochet thread.
- H hook and G hook
- dried beans
- fiberfill stuffing
- tapestry needle, scissors
