Spring is upon us and today I wanted to share my free crochet chicken pattern to make Sir Clucksalot. Sir Clucksalot is a quick and easy project that is great for gifting. Could you imagine an easter basket filled with these? How adorable would that be?! For those of you that aren’t fans of crocheting with faux fur yarn, I’ll have a regular yarn version of Sir Clucksalot ready for you next week. When it’s ready, you’ll be able to find that HERE.

Don’t lose it! Pin it for later Save

I was inspired to make a free crochet chicken pattern because my daughter, for some unknown reason, really wants a chicken. She is four and doesn’t understand that you can’t have a chicken as a pet. For a period would wake up, get out of bed and the first words out of her mouth were “can we get me a chicken today” with the occassional variation of that being “can I hold a chicken today?”. Living in the city and being on lockdown aren’t conducive for coordinating a trip to a local petting farm so I decided to get creative. Although Sir Clucksalot isn’t alive, she’s pretty happy with him and the fact that I don’t say no when she wants to take him to bed. I call that a win-win.

For this pattern, I’ve used Fable Fur yarn from We Crochet. If this is your first time using faux fur yarn, I highly recommend that you check out my Tips and Tricks for Working with Faux Fur Yarn video below or the written article HERE. This will help you to hit the ground running and avoid frustration working with this yarn. This pattern is a great place to start working with faux fur yarns because it’s small and doesn’t involve a lot of shaping. Worsted weight acrylic yarn is used to create the feet, beak and frills for Sir Clucksalot.

Finished Size:
 

  • Approximately 3.5” tall. (not including frills)

Gauge: 

  • 4 sts x 5.5 rows = 2” in Fable Fur – Not vital to project as long as the same tension is maintained throughout the project and there are no holes that stuffing can be seen through. 


Notes:

  • Gauge is not vital to the project but it may affect the amount of yarn needed for the project. 
  • A 5.5mm crochet hook is recommended for the project but if you find you are unable to feel your stitches, you can adjust your hook until you can more easily feel your stitches to know where to place your stitches.  This may however affect your gauge and therefore, the amount of yarn needed. 
  • This pattern is worked in continuous rounds (unless stated otherwise).  Do not join at the end of the row, unless indicated.  A stitch marker is used to keep track of the beginning of the round.
  • All pieces made in the Fable Fur are worked and sewn onto the project with the wrong side facing out to show the better-looking side of the fur. 

You can purchase an inexpensive ad-free PDF version of this crochet chicken pattern for a small fee HERE on Ravelry and HERE on Etsy.
