Tiny Spring Chick

Originally I wanted this to be another bear, but it turned into a tiny chick. It's about 3 and 1/2 inches tall when using worsted weight yarn and an F hook. Very easy and quick to make. Have fun making these in different colors for spring and Easter!

6 mm safety eyes

sc= single crochet
inc= increase ( 2 single crochets in 1 stitch)
dec= decrease ( single crochet 2 stiches together)

**= anything in between is repeated.
F/O= finish off
