Pocket Chicken Family
Free version of this pattern available as video tutorial on my blog here. (Free version of this pattern does not include instructions for the nest)
The Pocket Chicken Family includes instructions for crocheting the mother hen, baby chick, and their nest bed. All of the pieces are completely no-sew and crocheted in one piece. This beginner-friendly bird doll pattern is quick and easy to work up. It can be kept as a squishy plush with super bulky blanket yarn, or turned into a small mini keychain with thinner weight yarns. It is great as a birthday gift, Christmas or holiday gift, as party favors, non candy Easter Egg stuffers, or market/craft fair products. Kids and children alike will adore these cute barn farm animals!
