Crochet Duck Pattern

Crochet Duck Pattern

This crochet duck is about 5 inches tall (not including the legs.) The head and body are made in one piece, and the wings, legs, and beak are sewed on. This is a great beginner pattern.

This little duck is the Letter “D” in my Amigurumi from A to Z series! Read this post to learn more and to see the other letters!

MY LATEST VIDEOS

Andrew Duckwell Waddlington III is a very royal little duckling. His father, King Mallard, wants him to take a bigger interest in the Pond Politics, but Andrew (or Drew as he rather be called) enjoys riding the lily pads at the edge of the pond. He has quite a bit of time to grow into his Princeship, however. He is still a little duckling.

Duck Fuzz
Cut two pieces of yarn about 6 inches long. Insert the hook through one of the stitches at the top of the head. Loop the yarn in half. Use your hook to pull it through at the halfway point, but not all the way. Go under the loop and pull the ends back through. Pull the ends tight.
