I found these adorable fabric 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.

      My pleasure, Louise! Hope you enjoy it 🙂

  7. Cogaroo April 2, 2014 at 5:41 pm #

    These are adorable! I can see making them in all sorts of different colors. Perhaps they would look nice decorating a chicken coop… 🙂

    • Kara April 3, 2014 at 8:01 pm #

      That does sound nice … A whole rainbow family!

  8. Pamela April 2, 2014 at 6:11 pm #

    ADORABLE! My daughter made these out of flannels and feathers for me some years back. You might want to try what she did and string them in a line up-down and use beads in between. Just the cutest thing ever to hang in the kitchen corner! Thanks for the conversion. She’s going to get one in return now 🙂

    • Kara April 3, 2014 at 8:01 pm #

      They sound so cute!! I hope your daughter likes it 🙂

    Hi Kara.

    Your beanbags are gorgeous. I made similar crochet easter chicks last year for Easter and wish I had thought of using them as paper weights.

    I love the comb detail.


    • Kara April 4, 2014 at 7:42 pm #

      Thanks so much, Dedri! Paper weights are a great idea!!

  11. Mary April 4, 2014 at 5:16 pm #

    I will stuff them with fiberfill and use them as cat toys.

    • Kara April 4, 2014 at 7:42 pm #

      Good idea!

  12. Lauren @ The Thinking Closet April 4, 2014 at 10:13 pm #

    These are cute enough, that I think they would actually make me enjoy doing dishes! Great job!

    • Kara April 5, 2014 at 9:46 am #

      They make me smile every time I look at them 🙂

  13. naida April 6, 2014 at 1:03 pm #

    That is just too cute! Thanks for the pattern.

      My pleasure, Naida! Glad you like them 🙂

  14. Brandy April 6, 2014 at 8:36 pm #

    These turned out SO cute! I can’t even imagine trying to crochet one because it would be a fiasco! I would much rather pull out my sewing machine, this is what I love about blogging. Seeing everyone’s strengths! Crocheting definitely isn’t mine, thanks for sharing and linking back to me so that I could see it! 🙂

    • Kara April 7, 2014 at 7:13 am #

      I am so glad you like them, Brandy!! I LOVE your little chicks (as you can see). Thank you so much for the inspiration. So glad you came by to see!

    I loved your cute little chickens so much…I made them into to cat toys for the shelter I crochet toys for, they either sell the toys for money for the shelter or auction off the toys in there Christmas auctions, which gain a lot of attention!! I will send you pics if you so want…and I cannot wait to check out your other free crochet patterns!! Thanks for sharing your talents with us!! 🙂

      Happy Easter, Nata!

  23. Karin April 26, 2014 at 12:02 am #

    Hello Kara, I love this pattern for the chicken. My question is, if it would be possible to translate your pattern for my blog, and putting a link to the original pattern on your site. It is a wonderful project, I would like to talk about. 🙂

  24. Amy June 3, 2014 at 9:55 pm #

    Thank you for this pattern! We recently lost one of our chicks…my 4-year-old’s favorite one. 🙁 I made her one of these (but added little wings and feet ) for her to hug whenever she’s missing her “Buttercup.”

  25. ruth June 5, 2014 at 3:27 pm #

    I admit I’m not too computer savey, but I refuse to print a pattern that has, like, 10 pages of comments. I love your pattern too, but I wouldn’t want someone using up valuable ink and paper to print my comment in order to get the pattern.

    • Kara June 5, 2014 at 3:40 pm #

      Hi Ruth 🙂 I have a print button at the bottom of the page that only prints the post itself. It even allows you to delete photos or extra text you don’t want. Hope that helps.

  26. Barbara June 11, 2014 at 10:55 am #

    They are so sweet. Thanks…. Hugs from Italy. Barbara

  27. Jessica September 5, 2014 at 1:34 pm #

    Would you consider doing a post on how to read the crochet symbols in your little drawing? You explain stuff so well!

  28. Eva September 6, 2014 at 4:10 am #

    So cute!!!
    Thank you very much!!

    • Kara September 8, 2014 at 10:29 am #

      My pleasure, Eva 🙂

  29. Ariane January 5, 2015 at 9:49 am #

    Thank you für this pattern. so cute!!!!

    My little chickens….


  31. barbara burdick March 16, 2015 at 8:16 pm #

    Just finished the mom and baby chic,and gave them to a neighbor 2 floors up, started laundry,then sat down to have another look at my little chicken.I accidentally hit the X button which deleted it!! So I’ve come back for another copy. I’m not selling anything. I’m just generous,and also blind and batty! You really hit a nerve in the public.Chickens make a kitchen seem homey,even if you live in the city. And a lot of people have a little yearning to live in the country,with a backyard full of chickens,impossible as that might be.Your pattern is very sweet.Didn’t take long to do-just the perfect pattern for me! Thank you so much,and please forgive my double-dipping into your little chickens! Sincerely,Barbara Burdick

  32. sawcat June 8, 2015 at 5:06 pm #

    I am going to have to find something a bit more weighty and make a few of these for my mom. She loves chickens, and these would be good weights for holding open cookbooks, with the right fill.

    • Kara June 9, 2015 at 10:24 am #

      What a great idea!

  33. kerrie June 22, 2015 at 12:25 am #

    love your little chickens! Unfortunately mine failed! I tried making the smaller chicken … not sure how to assemble!

  34. Jana June 27, 2015 at 11:15 am #

    Hi, Kara. I think these would also be great microwave ‘hot pads’! Have you ever seen them? They are like little hot pads for your fingers to take hot dishes out of the microwave! I think, if you just don’t sew up and fill them, that these would be great for that. The only ones I’ve seen have been just plain. 😉

  35. Evonne March 1, 2016 at 1:41 pm #

    These are adorable! Thank you!

  36. scrapaboom April 1, 2016 at 9:19 am #

    Here are my chicken for my 2 boys. Thnak you so much for this pattern.

  37. Dani September 8, 2016 at 5:16 pm #

    Just made one for my kitty. I was trying to get a picture of it but instead I got a picture of him snatching it away. Very cute pattern thank you!

  38. Emily Ann November 11, 2016 at 2:36 pm #

    Hope to make it for my thanksgiving table. Thanks for the idea of expired popcorn kernels I have lots of them

  39. Lisa November 16, 2016 at 10:12 am #

    Thanks so much for sharing about the pattern on Instagram. We buy farm raised eggs from a lady who works in an office setting. This will be a great thank you gift to her as a paperweight. (I crocheted her egg coasters last year). Bless you for sharing you work.

    • Kara November 16, 2016 at 10:35 am #

      What a nice idea!!
