🎬 Video tutorial how to crochet amigurumi chick


Working time: about 2 hours

Skill level: 🌸🌸🌸 intermediate


Useful information before starting

To make the chick you need to know the amigurumi technique and the basic crochet stitch used for its processing is the single crochet.

The technique is based on a spiral round knitting, without closing at the end of the round with the slip stitch, for this reason a stitch marker is useful that gives the possibility to keep visible the first or last stitch of each turn and that it is moved as it develops.

The size of the amigurumi chick is 10 cm, made with the indicated yarn.
