This Crochet Chick pattern is perfect for easter or spring decorations. The quick and easy free crochet pattern works up in about 30 minutes and will be a great easter basket filler for any child. Fill this crochet spring chick basket with easter candy to be enjoyed by everyone.
I was inspired to design this pattern after seeing a little knit chick basket on pinterest. That basket was worked as a flat piece and sewn together. I wanted to make a crochet chick pattern that was beginner friendly and did not require a lot of sewing. Very little sewing is used in this pattern and you can even glue some of the pieces on instead of sewing.
I always have some Red Heart Super Saver on hand. It is a durable yarn that is great for seasonal projects. The little baskets take up such a small amount of yarn and work up so fast. You can easily complete a few in a single evening.

Adding the Details
Next take a small piece of black felt and cut out two 1/4 inch diameter circles for the eyes. You can sew these on or glue them on the the chick. An alternative is to us a black marker to draw on the eyes.
For the beak, take a 1/2 inch square piece of yellow or orange felt. Fold the square in half to create a triangle and trim the edges to create a beak. Sew or glue this felt to the head of your chick.
Now glue or sew on the wings of the chick.
Now your mini spring chick basket is complete.
