Pearl crocheting yarn, a 1 mm hook, a Big Eye needle, a 4 cm high plastic egg


Step 1

Start the stringing the pattern from above (the first bead in the first row is marked with a black dot). I recommend that you string a small piece of paper between the rows, so that you can avoid any eventual errors and to make them easier to count.

Row 1 – 6x R
Row 2 – 12x R
Row 3 – 18x R
Row 4 – 24x R
Row 5 – 30x R
Row 6 – 36x R
Row 7 – 42x R
Rows 8 to 22 – 48x R
Row 23 – 42x R
Row 24 – 36x R
Row 25 – 30x R
Row 26 – 24x R
Row 27 – 18x R
Row 28 – 12x R
Row 29 – 6x R

Step 2

Crochet 3 loops without R (fig. 2a). Then crochet short columns consisting of 6 loops onto the first loop in the chain so that you end up with a circle (fig. 2b). Further continue with a short column and add one R to each of the loops (fig. 2c).

2 / a

Step 3

Continue with the second row. Crochet two loops with a short column and 1x R into each of the loops from the first row (fig. 3a). There will be a total of 12x R in the second row (fig. 3b). Add another 6x R to the next row – a total of 18 all around. Always add the R to the last R in the row. Continue expanding the circle until you have 48x R all around (fig. 3c). Then crochet 14 straight rows without any additions (fig. 3d).

Step 4

You will now reduce (skip/omit) one loop at the start of each new row so that you eventually end up at 6 columns. As such, skip the first R in the row and insert the hook directly into the second column (fig. 4a) and crochet 7 short columns into the remaining 7 loops in the row. Once you have reduced half the rows, place the plastic egg into the crocheted pouch (fig. 4b). Continue reducing R at the beginning of each row, until you reach the last 6 R. Sew in the remainder of the yarn and hide it inside the crocheting (fig. 4c) .

Step 5

Sew the feathers (each feather consists of 10x R) onto the upper R. Sew on the wings and the tail in the same way as the feathers (figs. 5a-5b). Your first seed bead chick is now finished!
