My sister in law requested a crochet chick for my niece this Easter. I was more than happy to oblige.
My sis' in law found this Easter chick pattern online, which is free, and in Dutch, although you can use Google translate to change it to English. I made it last night, in front of the telly, so it's a nice, quick easy make. You could probably still knock one out before Easter if you wanted to!
There were some funny translations to deal with, google didn't do a brilliant job (kept telling me to do a 'half solid' or a 'fasting'), especially on the wings, legs, beak and cockscomb. But these are easy enough to work out if you know a bit of crochet already.
I used double knitting yarn and a 3.5mm crochet hook to make this cute Easter chick. I sewed on black felt for the eyes and used some old pink blusher for the cheeks. I'm still working on using up all my wool, and this was another project where I didn't need to buy anything new. Hurrah!
Have you been making anything crafty this Easter?
