Procedure:

Use the peyote stitch to first create the head and then the body. Then connect both parts with the neck, decorate the chicken's body and create the stand.

The head

Row 1: String and tie off 6x R8a.

Row 2: Sew 1x R8a above each gap between the R8a from the first row. A total of 6x.

Row 3: Sew 1x R8a into each gap between the R8a. A total of 6x.

Row 4: Alternately string 1x R8a and 2x R8a into the gaps. A total of 9x.

Rows 5 and 6: Sew 1x R8a into each gap between the R8a. A total of 9x.

Row 7: Sew 1x into three consecutive gaps and sew 1x R8a into the other gaps. Then sew 2x into one gap. Sew 1x R8a into the remaining gaps. The base for the comb and the beak.

Rows 8- 10: Sew 1x R8a into the gaps. A total of 9x. Insert a 11 - 12 mm bead into the created cup.

Row 11: String 1x R8a into two consecutive gaps and merely pass through the third one. A total of 6x. The number of gaps is reduced to 6.

Rows 12 and 13: String 1x R8a into each gap. A total of 6x.

Add 1x R8a to the middle of the circle from row 13. Emerge with the needle from one R8a in the circle. Add 1x R8a. Thread the needle into the opposite R8a in the circle. Thread the needle through the added R8a one more time. Insert the needle into the initial R8a from the second side.
