  • Use a stitch marker at the start of each round for placement.
  • This pattern is worked in continuous rounds, except for the comb. Do not join rounds or turn your work otherwise.
  • The finished size is approximately 5.5” (14 cm) tall.
  • If using safety eyes, you may prefer to use a 7mm hook to ensure tighter stitches.

Special Stitches

Invisible Decrease (dec):
Insert hook into the front loops of the next two stitches. Yarn over and draw through the first two loops. Yarn over and draw through the remaining two loops.

You can use a different weight of yarn for this pattern, adjusting to the appropriate hook size, but the size of the finished product will vary.

Body of the Chicken

  1. Round 1: 6 sc in mc (6)
  2. Round 2: inc around (12)
  3. Round 3: inc around (24)
  4. Round 4: (3 sc, inc) x 6 (30)
  5. Round 5: sc in BLO around (30)
  6. Rounds 6-9: sc around (4 rounds) (30)
  7. Round 10: (3 sc, dec) x 6 (24)
  8. Round 11: sc around (24)
  9. Round 12: (2 sc, dec) x 6 (18)

Cut yarn, leaving a 12” tail for sewing.

Invisible Finish:

  1. With a yarn needle, bring the finishing tail through the top loops of the first stitch of the final round, from front to back.
  2. Bring the tail through the back loop only of the last stitch of the final round.
  3. Fold the body in half so it’s flat. Whip stitch halfway across the top to form the tail. Gently stuff the body.
  4. Pull gently until the tail forms a new set of “top loops”.

Embroidering the Eyes

  1. Use a 14” strand of yarn for each eye (do not double over). Secure safety eyes or embroider into the top of row 11 (second row from the top of the body). There will be one stitch between the beak and each eye.
  2. Loop yarn through 2-3 times for each eye. Fasten off, leaving ends inside the body.

Embroidering the Beak

  1. At the open end of the body, use a 14” strand of yarn doubled over to embroider the beak into Round 11 (second row from the top). The beak will span 1-2 stitches wide and be looped through only once.
  2. Ensure the beak is centered on the open end of the body, using the tail as a reference. Knot ends inside the body to finish off.

Continue to whip stitch across the top of the body to close the head, tucking in any additional stuffing needed. Finish off, and weave in the tail.


  1. Ch 3
  2. In second ch from the hook, (hdc, sl st) in the next 2 st.
  3. Fasten off, leaving a 12” tail for attaching to the head.

Attaching the Comb:

  1. Place the comb on the head, with the end sitting on the highest point. Using a yarn needle and the tail from the crest, sew back and forth to secure with about 5-6 stitches. Weave in the ends.

Your Chicken is complete! I hope you enjoyed this pattern.
