Mini Mabel Egg Crochet Pattern

It’s finally here! Mini Mabel Chicken has her own little hatching egg! This sweet little addition is just what the Mabel family needed. This tiny little chicken fits perfectly inside and makes a great interactive toy for kids or market makes.

You can pick up a copy of the Mini Mabel Chicken pattern HERE in my shop.

This pattern pairs perfectly with the Mama Mabel Mod, also free on my blog HERE. The little egg fits inside the Mama chicken for a super fun surprise!

The Mabel family of patterns have been well-loved among our crochet community. They’ve been a favorite for kids and chicken lovers, they have served as a great place to start for beginners, and are perfect for those looking for quick market makes.

You can pick up an inexpensive, and beautifully formatted version of the Mabel Egg pattern HERE, or in my Etsy shop. You can also pick up your copy of the original Mabel pattern HERE, or the Mama and Mini pattern HERE.

Let’s dive in!

  • Use a stitch marker at the start of each round for placement.
  • This pattern is worked in continuous rounds. Do not join rounds or turn your work.
  • I recommend matching the brand/weight of yarn used for the nest to your Mini Mabel Chicken. This will ensure a snug fit and a more consistent look.
  • You can use a different weight of yarn for this pattern, adjusting to the appropriate hook size, but the size of the finished product will be different.
  • Increase stitch (inc) – 2 sc in the same st


mc – magic circle

st(s) – stitch(es)

sc – single crochet

sl st – slip stitch

inc – 2 sc in the same st

FO – fasten off



Round 1: 6 sc in mc (6)

Round 2: inc around (12)

Round 3: (3 sc, inc) x 3 (15)

Rounds 4-6: sc around (15) (3 rounds)

FO, weave in ends and set aside.


Round 1: 4 sc in mc (4)

Round 2: inc around (8)

Round 3: (sc, inc) x 4 (12)

Round 4: (3 sc, inc) x 3 (15)

Rounds 5-6: sc around (15) (2 rounds)

Do not cut yarn. Continue to next steps to attach top and bottom of egg.


With the top half of the egg still on your hook, insert your hook through any st on the bottom half and work 6 sl sts though both halves to create a hinge.

FO and weave in ends.

Your Mini Mabel Egg is complete!
