Free Pattern: Easter Chic Chics- EZ, Eugenie, Easter & Esme
Head / Body
Rnd1--- MR 5X (5)
Rnd2--- V (10)
Rnd3---X, V (15)
Rnd4--- 2X, V (20)
Rnd5---3X, V (25)
Rnd6--- X (25)
When you are done Rnd 8 or 9, you can insert the safty eyes here on Rnd 7, but before you do so, make sure you row down to see how to locate the beak first.
Rnd13--- 4X, /\ (25)
Stuff as you go from here to the end
Rnd14---BLO : 8 ( X , /\ ) till the end, you will have one more stitch left, just single crochet the last stitch. ( 17)
I designed Rnd 14 to crochet back loop only to form a base that the chics can really sit properly so they won’t be like wobbling around, if you want them to look more like an egg-shape, you can just crochet normally on this round to create a rounder shape for the chics.
Rnd15--- 8 /\ , X (9) Close off. Fasten off the weave in the yarn.
Rnd1---MR 3X ( 3 ) ch1, turn
Rnd2--- X (3) ch1,turn
Rnd3--- V , X, V (5) leave a long tail to sew the hand/wings to body later.
Use brown yarn to sew.
Feel free to decide where you want to sew the legs/toes, just to make sure the length is right, here I use the stitch to help you see better. For the length of each toes , the shorter ones are 2 stitches long, and the longest toes are 3 stitches long.
Between the 2 legs, I count 4 stitches apart, you can sew them closer or wider, it’s up to you .
Cut off some little triangles from the orange felt for beaks
Hot glue or glue between the body Rnd 7and Rnd 8, and make sure it’s between the 2 legs you just made. Once you located the beak, then you can start the rest.
Notice: No matter what kind of eyes you are making, they are both 1 stitch apart from the beak.
Eyes of the Eugenie chic
Use black yarn to sew
You can start with the right or left eyes, no matter which one you go first, make sure you count 1 stitch apart from the top of the beak (pic 1) . Insert the needle at the back of the body--- leave a tail which is long enough for you to tie a knot later--- and come out at point A (pic1)
Count 2 stitches to upper right/left and insert the needle to point B (pic2)
Count 1 stitch down and come out at point C (pic 3)
Insert the needle back to point A (pic 4)
Count 2 stitches to lower right/left and insert the needle to point D (pic 4)
Or you can just count 1 stitch down right under point C , which is the point D and insert back to point A (pic 5)
Now you are done one eye, you just insert back to the point A, now your needle will come out at another side of the eye, still count 1 stitch apart from the beak (pic 6) , repeat pic 1~5
When you are done both eyes, make sure your needle come out at the very first spot you insert at the back of the body.( pic 7)
Tie a knot and weave it into the body to hide it. (pic 8 ) Nice and secure!
If this is too hard for you, here’s another way to help you out. Check the picture below and you will see how the pattern go.
Eyes of the EZ chic
Use black yarn to sew
Start whichever side of the eye you want, again, make sure you count 1 stitch apart from the beak, here we go!!
Insert the needle with thread from the back of the body --- leave a tail which is long enough for you to tie a knot later--- and come out at point A (pic 1)
Count 3 stitches to the left/right and insert to point B , don’t pull too tight, you have to loosen it a bit to create a smile-like curve (pic2)
Sew the eye lashes (pic 3~4)
Now you are done one eye, go ahead to make the other eye .
When you are done both eyes, Repeat pic 7~8.
Eyes of the Esme chic
Cut down 2 circles from the white felt, use the black marker to draw a dot in the middle of the circle, hot glue /glue them to the face, make sure they are both 1 stitch apart from the beak.
Use the tail you save to thread the needle and sew the wings/hands to body Round 7 , about 2 stitches away from the eyes.
When you are done , make sure your needle come out from the center top of the body (pic 1) for both hands.
Tie a knot, nice and secure, cut the thread and leave about 2 inches long. (pic 2)
Insert the needle right in the middle of the thread (pic 3) and kinda brush/trim to separate them into 4 threads (pic 4)
Trim them to the length you want , nice and fluffy!
Use the marker or the real blush to make the pink cheek
