approx. 2.3"height x 2"length
...but can vary based on yarn and hook size.

MATERIALS

*Worsted Weight Yarn: Yellow (5yds) & Gold (1yd)
*Stitch Markers to mark your rounds
*Felt: White, Black & Gold
*Tapestry Needle
*Matching Thread
*Hot Glue
*Makeup Blush & Q-tip (optional)

PATTERN NOTES - must-read...
 Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
 Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
 There's no need to sl st and/or ch when going to the next round unless stated to do so.
 Always do the 1st stitch where you slip stitch from the previous round.
 The chain, in the beginning, does NOT count as one stitch unless stated otherwise.
 You slip stitch on the first sc, not on top of the chain 1.

SPECIAL STITCHES 
Invisible join - this VIDEO explains how to do this technique.
Other side of the foundation chains - this VIDEO explains how to do this technique.

BODY/FACE with yellow
  Rnd 1: ch5, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 2 chs, 5hdc in next ch other side of the foundation chains sc in next 2 chs, 2sc in next ch (12)
  Rnd 2: 2sc in next st, sc in next 3 sts, 2hdc in next 3 sts, sc in next 3 sts, 2sc in next st, sc in next st (17)
  Rnd 3: sc in next 4 sts, hdc in next 2 sts, 2dc in next st, dc in next 2 sts, 2dc in next st, hdc in next 2 sts, sc in next 5 sts, join to 1st st with the invisible join (19)
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

WINGS with yellow
Right Wing: Attach yarn on the 4th st of the body
ch4, sl st in same st you attach, ch3, sl st in same st, ch2, sl st in same st
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.
Left Wing: Attach yarn on the 16th st of the body
ch2, sl st in same st you attach, ch3, sl st in same st, ch4, sl st in same st
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

NOTE: I only made feet for the chick that has the cracked eggshell on his head.
FEET with gold
This is done all in the same st. Attach the gold yarn on the 9th st of the body, ch2, sl st in same st you attach, ch2, sl st in same st you attach
F/O, secure and weave in ends. Repeat the same process on the 11th st.

ASSEMBLE
     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
     TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     EYES...using black felt, make 2 small circles. Place them, in the position you like best.
     PEAK…using gold felt; make a tiny diamond-shaped and glue it on the position you like best.
     EGG SHELL...using white felt, make a cracked eggshell and placed it on the bottom or the top of the head.
     OPTIONAL…you can add a little blush underneath the eyes using makeup blush and a q-tip.

  Rnd 4: sc2tog, sc in next 3 sts (4)
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

Note: when you see a + sign it means all those stitches are supposed to be done in that one stitch.
SNOUT with light brown
  Rnd 1: 5sc in magic ring (5)
  Rnd 2: 3hdc in next st, sc in next st, hdc+dc+hdc in next st, sc in next st, 3hdc in last st (11)

F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

TAIL with light brown
  Row 1: ch4, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sl st in next ch, sc in next ch (3)
F/O and leave a tail to sew it to the body.


ASSEMBLE
     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
     TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     FEET...try to find the position you like best. I place mine between round 16 and 17; approx. 0.50" apart. Only sew the 2 last rows from the feet (the flat area) to the body.
     ARMS...there's no need to stuff them. Align them with the feet and place them on round 11 and 12.
     INNER & OUTER EARS...place the wrong side of the inner ear to the wrong side of the outer ear. Sew both pieces together by matching up the stitches like in the picture below. Since the inner ear is one round smaller this will help the outer ear roll in a bit. Repeat the same process to the other earpieces.
     Place the ears on round 6 of the head/body. You'll only be sewing them to round 4 - 5 of the body and leaving the rest unsew.
     SNOUT...stuff it lightly. Find the center of the front of the head/body and place it between round 9 and 11. The section where we did the hdc+dc+hdc goes up.
     TAIL...place it in round 15 on the back of the body, try to find the center.
     EYES...I'm using the rounded domed buttons since I have no crafts stores around my area that sell safety eyes. I'll be placing them between round 7 and 8; approx. 0.90" apart. Using light brown yarn, make an accent for each eye.
     NOSE...using black felt, make a rounded triangle and place it on the snout.
     TONGUE...using red felt, make a half oval and place it anywhere underneath the snout.

ASSEMBLE
     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
     TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     FEET...if you haven't already stuff them lightly. Place them between round 14 and 16; approx 1.25" apart.
     ARMS...no need to stuff them. Align them to the feet and place them on round 11 and 12.
     SPOTS...using grey felt create the spots like in the picture below.
     EYES...using black felt make 2 small rounded rectangles. Place them in round 8 and 9. With a black embroidery floss or thread, embroider a line across from one eye to the other eye like in the picture below.

PATTERN NOTES - must-read...
 Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
 Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
 There's no need to sl st and/or ch when going to the next round unless stated to do so.
 Always do the 1st stitch where you slip stitch from the previous round.
 The chain, in the beginning, does NOT count as one stitch unless stated otherwise.
 You slip stitch on the first sc, not on top of the chain 1.

SPECIAL STITCHES
Picot Stitch - ch3, insert hook into the 3rd chain from hook, y/o & draw up the yarn through all the loops.

ASSEMBLE
     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
     TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     FEET...if you haven't already stuff them lightly. Place them between round 16 and 18; approx 1.25" apart.
     COAT...fold down the beige part. Place the coat on round 12. Find the center between both feet, this is where the opening of the coat will be. You don't want to completely sew it in place, only sew the back loops that where left unworked to the body.
     ARMS...no need to stuff them. Align them to the feet and place them on row 3 of the coat underneath the beige part.
     EARS...if you haven't already, fold the ears in a wave of 3 folds on the wide part and stitch through all the layers with your needle to make the ear shape. Align them to the arms and place them between round 7 and 9.
     EYES...I'm using the rounded domed buttons since I have no crafts stores around my area that sell safety eyes. I'll be placing them between round 8 and 9; approx. 1" apart. Place the accents above and below the eyes.
     NOSE...place in the center of the eyes between round 10 and 11.
     WRINKLES...place them above the eyes.
     OPTIONAL...if you like you can use some makeup blush and a q-tip to add some color to the ears.
