I go in a full depth video review of the Big and Little Chickie Chicken Crochet Pattern on my Youtube Channel @BriananLentz which you can watch here:
I do think is very much worth the value and I was very happy to support this crochet designer who has really come up with multiple gorgeous patterns with a modern aesthetic. This crochet chicken is a non-stuffed stuffy. That is, the head is stuffed with poly fil but the rest of the body is left unstuffed. This makes it really loveable and cuddly and perfect for any baby to small child.
I actually think this would be a great gift to make for anyone who enjoys the homestead, primitive or even farmhouse aesthetic.
The Big and Little Chickie Chicken Crochet pattern is easy enough for any beginner to tackle and yet advanced enough to keep a veteran crocheter intrigued with the possible new to them techniques.
With the Big and Little Chickie Chicken Crochet Pattern I was introduced to the size 7.0 mm crochet hook. This was new to me, I had never needed this size crochet hook before. Upon learning more on my Instagram reel, I have since learned the size 7.0 mm crochet hook is a very popular size overseas, as well as a very popular size when crocheting stuffs and plushies.
This pattern requires both a size 7.0 mm and 8.0 mm crochet hook and I would recommend against changing size of hooks. I tried that, and the result was a failure. To achieve the beautiful results you see in the pictures you need to stick with the asked for crochet hooks.
The yarn I used to create the Big and Little Chickie Chicken Crochet Pattern is Yarn Bee’s Cozy Occasion in the colors Ivory, Light Grey, Cranberry, and Mustard.
The Big Chicken required 2 skeins of the Ivory and the Little Chicken in Light Grey required only 1 skein with 15 grams remaining.

I love the details on the Big and Little Chickie Chicken Crochet Pattern. I think the comb is perfect, the knotted legs are such an original idea to me, and the tail feathers on the crochet chicken are just the cutest thing! You don’t really get to see them in the front of the pattern but oh my goodness they are so darling.
I actually think they are the cutest on the little chicken.
I like the idea of gifting the set of the large crochet chicken along with the smaller chicken because I think it would be so sweet to keep the large chicken in the nursery while the baby or small child can take the smaller stuffy with them on trips or just to snuggle.
All in all I really highly recommend this crochet pattern. I think this would be sweet to make as a home decor gift along with it being an absolute wonderful baby gift. The large chicken took me5 to 6 hours to complete while the smaller chicken only took 3 to 4.
I think this would be a fantastic seller at any craft fair if this is something you are interested in crocheting to sell. Again, I think you will find a lot of value from this crochet pattern.
