This crochet pattern is for a cute hen and chicks to brighten up your table or kitchen. Ideal for Spring decor or an Easter gift.
Hen and chicks could also be used as juggling balls.
This is an American version of the pattern.
The chicken and chick are made using the same pattern. The main difference is the thickness of yarn, hook size and decorative details.
The chicken is approx 6cm (2½”) high using sport/light worsted (DK) yarn
The chicks are approx 5cm (2”) high using fingering (4ply) yarn
I’ve used traditional colours. However, if you wish for more colourful hens feel free to change them! Multi coloured sock yarn for the chick looks great. Or why not try chunky yarn and a large hook for a super sized chick or chicken.
The pattern is suitable for an intermediate crocheter or a beginner with experience of following patterns. Photos illustrate where the decorative details are positioned. The pattern consists of 4 pages.
