Chicken - Egg Cozy, Decoration - Crochet Pattern
EGG COZY - CHICKEN
Crochet yourself some cute chickens for your breakfast table. When they are not on decorative duty they keep your boiled eggs warm and cozy. Make them in matching colors, multicolored or in soft pastels – just the way you like. Great for using up some scrap yarn as well.
You can keep them around all year. It‘s always chicken time. :)
Info: The pupils are only glued on here. You can embroider them if you like to make the whole thing childproof. That‘s not part of the pattern though.
All steps are explained in detail in words and pictures, so this pattern is suitable for beginners as well. This pattern contains 9 pages of crochet instructions and 12 pages of detailed step-by-step instructions.
Used techniques (US crochet terms): magic ring, chain, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, increases and (invisible) decreases, crocheting in front loops and back loops – explained. The figures are crocheted in continuous rounds/spirals as well as back and forth in rows.
With 3.0 mm hook and DK yarn or two strands of sport weight yarn the chickens get to be 11 x 9 cm tall.
You need it smaller or bigger? No problem! Simply use lighter or heavier yarn. Standard sized eggs won‘t fit then anymore though.
MATERIAL crochet hook (3.0 mm for DK yarn) tapestry needle stitch-marker scissors stuffing 1 pair of black 8 mm half beads (per chicken) glue to attach the half beads some colored pins optional: decorative items (e.g. buttons, brads, etc.)

I'm Stephanie, mother of three and I live with my family in Germany.
I've been crocheting for a while now. My kids got me to it. When there's no merchandising on the market for the current favorit comic figure you just have to make it yourself. That's how my first crocheted figure came to life. And with that my crochet addiction. :)
My patterns are for beginners and advanced crocheters alike. Stuffed with photos and detailed step-by-step instructions (I think you could call them photo-tutorials). I learned crocheting by myself and often found it quite frustrating to get stuck in the middle of a pattern just because some key-information was simply missing (as a beginner pretty much everything is key-information). That's why in my patterns almost everything is explained with words and photos.
I'm currently converting my older patterns into a new layout. Here on Makerist you can find all the patterns that already have the new layout plus all my new creations.
Have fun browsing through my patterns and happy crocheting!
- Steph :)
