This cute chicken pillow is very easy to complete, all parts are crocheted in the round. The instructions are illustrated with lot of pictures to be easy to follow.

Finished measurements: diameter approx. 10” / 28 cm

This is not a gauge-critical project. The model is crocheted on a bigger hook with a pillow insert. But if you don’t want to use an insert pillow, just crochet on smaller hook to have a tight texture and stuff the crochet pillow with the fiberfill.

Skill level: advanced beginner, intermediate

Sewing skills are also required for the insert pillow / or a 12” round-shaped pillow / or just work on smaller hook and stuff directly the crochet pillow.
