Hen & Chicks Amigurumi

February 2, 2017 /

Mei Li from AmiguruMEI has made her return to Craft Passion with this kawaii Crochet Chicken pattern, Hen & Chicks Amigurumi. After a year of waiting, I am glad that AmiguruMEI is back to contributing amigurumi pattern again despite her busy life with the 1-year-old twins.

The Hen & Chicks amigurumi, Tori, and twins Tama-Go, exactly reflected her current life with her twins who love to cling around. She cherishes every moment with her twins, cuddling them before they grow up in the blink of an eye.

How to Crochet Chicken – Hen & Chicks Amigurumi

The crochet Chicken Hen amigurumi, mama Tori, is made by using 2 strands of yarn and a bigger hook so that she comes out in a bigger size. Whilst the chicks amigurumi is done by using a single strand of yarn with the same pattern. The comb is done by surface crochet of red/yellow yarn on the head after stuffing. All the details of the hen & chicks amigurumi features have turned them into such a cuteness overload chicken breed. Get the details on the pattern and tutorial section below.

The mama hen truly enjoys her every moment with her bundle of joy twin chicks, giving them lots of hugs and cuddles. See how she spend her days with the twin chicks.

This is the busiest year yet for Mama Tori, who has just given birth to twins Tama and Go. Both boys love hanging around Mama all day, which isn’t really a bad thing, except for the fact that they also get into all sorts of trouble, and by that we mean all sorts! Still, Mama Tori is having the best fun she’s ever had, and is promptly aware that she should be cuddling her babies as much as she can before they grow up all too quickly!

CROCHET CHICHEN AMIGURUMI PATTERN

Tori the mother hen

Body

Tori's body is worked up faster by using two strands from two different balls of yarn.

With white yarn (from two different balls of yarn) and 4mm hook

Round 1: Sc 6 in magic ring {6}
Round 2: [Inc] around {12}
Round 3: [Inc, sc 1] around {18}

Round 5: [Inc, sc 3] around {30}
Round 6: [Inc, sc 4] around {36}
Round 7 - 12 (6 rounds altogether): Sc around {36}
Round 13: [Inv dec, sc 4] around {30}
Round 14: [Inv dec, sc 3] around {24}
Round 15: [Inv dec, sc 2] around {18}
Fill with stuffing
Round 16: [Inv dec, sc 1] around {12}
Round 17: [Inv dec] around {6}
Fasten off. Leave a long strand for making eye indentations.

Beak

With yellow yarn and 2.5mm hook

Round 1: Sc 5 in magic ring {5}
Round 2: [Inc] around {10}
Fasten off and leave a long end for sewing.
Flatten piece to resemble a triangle.

Wattle

With red yarn and 2.5mm hook

Ch 2. Sc 1.
Fasten off and leave a long end for sewing.

Comb

With red yarn and 2.5mm hook

Surface crochet in a straight line onto the top-center of Tori's body.

Row 1: Sc 1, ch 3, sc 2, ss into next sc.
Row 2: Ch 3, sc 2, ss into next sc.
Row 3: Ch 3, sc 2, ss into next sc.
Fasten off and weave in ends.

Wings (Make 2)

With white yarn (from two different balls of yarn) and 4mm hook

Round 1: Sc 3 in magic ring {3}
Round 2: [Inc] around {6}
Fasten off and leave a long end for sewing.

Blushing Cheeks (Make 2)

With pink yarn and 2.3mm yarn

Round 1: Sc 5 in magic ring {5}
Fasten off and leave a long end for sewing.

Eye indentations

Take the remaining strand from the body and thread it through a darning needle. Bring it up to a spot to the left side of the body, ideally below Round 7.

Make a horizontal backstitch and bring the yarn back down to the bottom of the body.

Gently tug to create an indentation. Repeat on the other side. The indentations should be about 5 stitches away from one another.

Bring yarn to the bottom of the head, knot it and trim excess.

Assembly

Sew beak between the eye indentations on the body.

Sew the wattle on below the beak.

Sew on the eyes with black embroidery floss. I used black crochet thread for Tori. Just make vertical backstitches back and forth between two stitches till the eyes are thick enough for your liking. I made about 8 backstitches for each eye.

Sew on the blushing cheeks.

Surface crochet the comb onto the top part of Tori's body (if you haven't done it already).

Sew on the wings.

Tori's cute little feet can be replicated by sewing on a downwards-pointing arrow with backstitches using twig-brown yarn.

More Details on how to crochet the Hen & Chicks Amigurumi

  1. Using double strands of yarn will work up your amigurumi piece in half the time.amigurumi hen 1
  2. Oval eyes will give your amigurumi a super-kawaii look. Just make vertical backstitches back and forth between two stitches till the eyes are thick enough for your liking. I like using sturdy crochet thread for this instead of embroidery floss.amigurumi hen 2
  3. Surface crochet is a great technique to use when adding on small and flimsy crochet pieces onto a larger body. Tori’s comb is made using chains, single crochets, and slip-stitches directly onto the top-center of her body.amigurumi hen 3
  4. The secret to dainty feet is using embroidery, which we have done with Tori’s feet. Just make simple backstitches to resemble tiny claws.amigurumi hen 4
  5. Different pairings of hook and yarn sizes yield different results. Baby chicks Tama and Go are made using essentially the same pattern as Mama Tori, but with thinner yarn and smaller hook size.amigurumi hen 5

The Hen & Chicks amigurumi, Tori and her twins Tama-Go, enjoy the bonding time together.

thank you for the cute pattern! I have to make a comment though, regarding the comb on top of Tori/Mama Hen; I was getting really confused as to why my comb was not coming out the way it looks in the pictures. At first I was crocheting CH3 and then going into the next 2 SC of the body to do the SC2. BUT I believe that it should be read more like CH3 and working back down the CH3 you do the SC2 and then SS into the body. This will give you 3 "peaks", resembling the comb of a hen.

Can you help with the chick's feathery head? I am not understanding the surface crochet. Every video I watch says the yarn must come up from the bottom. And are each of the three rows on top of each other? This is the only part of the chick that I can't follow. also the ss in the single crochet. do you have a video to view?

This looks super cute and I really want to try doing this, but I don't understand the instructions at all. Is this a video?

I'm hoping to make this for my friend, whose birthday is coming up in about a month. I've never tried to crochet before (although I've always been interested in it and even watched a couple videos a while back), so will this be okay as my first project?

Rita

Thursday 11th of April 2019

No... It's not good if you have never crochet before... You need to know how to make the stitches needed to make this... you need to know how to count your stitches... Please go back to YOUTUBE and learn how to crochet first.

Yes, it is OK to be the first amigurumi project for you, might not a perfect one but you can make it if you try hard. Good luck.
