Chicken butt coasters
Looking for something fun to make? Wanna give people a good laugh? Check out these chicken butt coasters! A perfect crochet project for Easter and farm / chicken lovers.
The last few years the peeking cat butt coasters were extremely popular. People started making a lot of variations, like dog and chicken butt coasters.
Some crafters shared funny versions of their chicken butt coasters on Facebook (which got deleted from the Facebook group one day later), which inspired me to make chicken butt coasters for Easter.
As there were no patterns available for the chicken butt coasters, I decided to make my own version and share the pattern of my version on my blog.
The pattern is kinda easy and I think the chicken butt coasters can be a doable project for beginners as well. All you need to know is some basic stitches like chains, single crochet and double crochet.
I have added a few picture tutorials to guide you and below you can find a video tutorial as well.
– Yarn & Colors Must Have (100% cotton, fingering yarn)
Colors I used:
2. pink for the butt,
3. a bit orange for the chicken legs,
4. a bit black for the eyes,
5. and a bit red for the comb
– Crochet hook 3.5mm (US E hook)
– Glue (optional)
Stitches that are used (US terms)
– single crochet
– double crochet
– treble crochet
– double treble crochet
increase: 2 single crochet in next stitch
decrease: next 2 single crochet together
**: repeat between **
(): amount of stitches you should have at the end of the row
I made a video tutorial of the Chicken butt coaster.
P.s. the yarn in the video is different than the cotton yarn I used for my pattern. I’m currently on a trip and didn’t have the correct cotton yarn, so I bought cheap acrylic yarn to use in this video. I highly recommend using cotton yarn, it turns out nicer and looks better after using!

Start with pink yarn
Round 1: 6 sc in a magic ring (6)
Change to yellow yarn
Round 2: increase x6 (12)
Round 3: (sc, increase) x6 (18)
Round 4: 1sc, increase, (2sc, increase) x5, 1sc (24)
Round 5: (3sc, increase) x6 (30)

Round 7: (5sc, increase) x6 (42)
Round 8: 3sc, increase, (6sc, increase) x5, 3sc (48)
Do not cut the yarn, we are going to continue working on the feathers.
I continued working on the feathers without cutting the yarn. Make the following stitches:
1 half double crochet in next sitch
1 double crochet in next 3 stitches
2 treble crochet in next stitch
1 double treble crochet in next stitch
2 treble crochet in next stitch
1 double crochet in next 3 stitches
1 half double crochet in next stitch
1 single crochet in next stitch
1 slip stitch in next stitch
Cut the yarn and weave in end.
Round 1: 6 sc in a MR, close with slip stitch, ch1, turn (6)
Round 2: 2sc in first sc, 4sc, 2sc in next sc, ch1, turn (8)
Round 3: 2sc in first sc, 6sc, 2 sc in next sc, ch1, turn (10)
Round 4: 2sc in first sc, 1sc, 1 dc, 2 dc in next sc, 3 treble crochet in next sc, 2 dc in next sc, 1 dc, 3sc (15)
Find the three stitches in the middle of the head. Attach red yarn to the stitch on the right with a slip stitch.
Stitch 1 (right): Chain 3, slip stitch in same stitch.
Stitch 2 (middle): Slip stitch in next stitch, chain 3, slip stitch in same stitch.
Stitch 3 (left): Slip stitch in last stitch, chain 3, slip stitch in same stitch.
Cut the yarn and weave in ends.
Use orange yarn. Find the stitch in the middle on the bottom part of the body. Count 5 stitches to the left and 5 to the right. In those stitches you will attach the legs.
Attach the yarn with a slip stitch, chain 30 and make a slip stitch in the same stitch as where you started.
Now shape the chains in a leg with 3 toes (see picture). You can use glue to keep it all together, or you can use a needle and thread.
On the pictures below I used glue, in the video above I used yarn and thread.
Eyes and beak
I used black yarn for the eyes and orange for the beak. I used a tapestry needle to sew it on the face. Take a look at my picture to see where you have to sew the eyes and beak!

Hi Wilma. Boy I have had a time trying to find you. Ok the 6 day blanket pattern by Betty? Was on Ravelry and I looked thru all the samples on the left and about middle ways down I saw a beautiful one by chickenbutt723. Insure am hoping that is you because I am dying to how what yarn you used for it. Please help???!!! Gorgeous blanket!!
i made mine into a heavy duty potholder by making it bigger and using two strands of yarn! sent it to my daughter to go with her great collection of weird potholders…she loves it!!!
great pattern, thank you so much!!!
I was wanting to make it a potholder too,I’m fairly new to crocheting, Do you think if I used two strands of yarn and a larger hook,say size 6 that it would turn out bigger and thicker if I use this same pattern?
Love it!! Thanks for sharing your pattern

What size yarn did you use? It looks like 4 ply, is that correct? I’d like to make this for a friend, it’s very cute. Thanks
Hey hey, it’s just normal Catania yarn that matches with crochet hook 3,5mm. Here is an English example of the yarn I’m using: https://www.amazon.com/Catania-100%25-cotton-Flesh-257/dp/B005WGYSH8/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1466878553&sr=8-3&keywords=catania

No selling, drama or nudity. The rest is all about crafting. Hope to see some new members 🙂

Great pattern! I make cat butts all the time. Having fun but how do you attach the head to the body? Thanks in advance. You are very talented.
Thank you! I leave a long end and use a needle to attach the head to the body. But I think you can also use glue!

Thank you so much for the “Chicken Butt” coaster pattern. I’m a chicken/rooster fanatic. My entire kitchen is nothing but chickens. These will go wonderfully with the rest. I am going to however, change up the colors to match my kitchen. I’ll probably do many, all with different colors. Thanks again! They are terrific! 🙂

Hi I am having trouble on row 4 of the butt and body please help me undersatand it
Round 4: 1sc, inc, (2sc,inc) x5, 1sc (24). This means sc 1, 2sc in 1 st, repeat the following five times: sc1, sc1, 2sc in 1 st. After repeating that 5 times, sc 1.
Let me know if you have any questions left!
So in the first st 1 sc and 2 sc all in one st so that is 3 st in one stitch
No, like this
2. 2sc in 1
5. 2sc in 1
(repeat step 3-5 4 more times, so 5 times in total)
