Get ready to fall in love.  Introducing the darling Crochet Chick pattern.  Fun for spring.  A great addition for a special Easter basket or even for your office to welcome in Spring.
Crochet ChickI don’t know what it is but the cheery yellow and orange reminds me of warm, sunnier days–all the things that signal spring is in the air!

This crochet chick uses the crochet egg pattern.  I worked hard to design an egg that would be just-right narrow at the top and then gradually build to chunky, rounded bottom.  And who doesn’t love a project that can be worked right from your stash pile!Crochet Chick

  1. Thank you for your gorgeous, gorgeous bee pattern. I have made quite a few and vary the colours too. I’m hoping to try this wee chick pattern and leave the bottom open to accept a choc egg. Then I can give to each of grandchildren, my Mum, daughter etc(a bit like boiled egg cosies. Thank you again. HAPPY NEW YEAR xx
