Free Crochet Chicken Pattern – Sir Clucksalot the Amigurumi Chicken

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 to kids and chicken lovers alike. Could you imagine an easter basket filled with these? How adorable would that be?! For those of you that prefer working with smoothe yarns, be sure to check out my free pattern for Chick Jagger, Sir Clucksalot’s smoothe yarn twin brother.

I was inspired to make a free crochet chicken pattern because my daughter, who 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 she’d wake up, and the first words out of her mouth were “can we get me a chicken today” with the occasional 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 that I don’t say no when she wants to take a chicken with her 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 or the video below. 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 yarn is used to create the feet, beak and frills for Sir Clucksalot that are made as separate pieces and sewn onto the body.

Do I have to use fur yarn to make this project?

For those of you that may not want to use faux fur yarn to make this free crochet chicken pattern, you’re in luck! I designed Chick Jagger to recreate this pattern with an acrylic yarn and it’s available as a free crochet pattern here on the blog.

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 5.5 mm 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 / a continuous spiral (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.

  1. I’m having a hard time with the beak, it doesn’t come out like the one in the picture, do you by any chance have a video on how to do the beak?

    • Hi Sam,

      I’m sorry you’re having difficulty with the beak. Unfortunately, I do not have a video for that. If I did, it would be on the page here with the pattern. If you’d like to send me an email to ashley@theloopylamb.com and describe how your beak looks different, I can try to help you figure it out 🙂
