    Hi!
    Absolutely adore this little chick! Have realised now I’ve sewn him up inside out but ah well, he still looks cute!
    Just a quick couple of q’s…. What do you mean by don’t join (chick) and join (egg) after making the magic loop and also what is the point of the ch 1 at the start?
    And on the wing I don’t get the last ch and sc bit, I don’t seem to end on the tip!!
    Sorry for any naivety, I’m pretty new to all this!
    Thanks for the pattern, I’m hoping my kids will have chicks (with wings!!) for Easter!
    Kind regards

    Thank you for the Chick Pattern! I just love it! I am going to try to put an eggshell on top as well, maybe at an angle…thinking I can make it narrower by taking out an increase round.
    I am planning on making several of these for nieces and nephews, thanks again!

    Aaaww – such a sweet little chick … and a absolutely stunning idea – because it’s so simple to create (‘just’ an egg-like shape, some wings and hair …) – I would have never thought of this! You are a really great crochet pattern designer!

    Hi, I’m wondering if you can tell me approx. what size this sweet little guy & girl are? The eyes you used don’t seem to be available any longer but they make some very similar. Your link connects to an 18 mm size but the only sizes I can find are 15 & 20. I’m trying to decide if a little bigger or a little smaller would be better. Thank you! I love this pattern!
