A free Crochet Duck pattern, for an Easter chick with bonnet. I love this time of year, lots of chocolate, but I feel the kids get so much sweet stuff its nice to give them a little cuddly easter themed crochet soft toy.

I had great fun designing this 'Lil Crochet Duckie', especially his little legs and feet. I was really happy with myself when I finally worked out and created a one piece amigurumi leg and foot,(tricky when trying to have the flat foot then the stuffed shaped leg all worked in one piece! ) Even if I may say so myself, they have turned out awesome, with some pretty darn clever manipulation of basic stitches using the slip stitch, back loops and single crochet.

You will need
4.00 mm hook
My favourite Crochet Hook Set is the Ostart 22pcs Mixed Aluminum Handle Crochet Hook Knitting Knit Needle Weave Yarn Set*
2 x 50g yellow yarn  (we will be working with 2 strands held together) I Love Red Heart with Love E400.1201 Yarn, Daffodil*
Fiber fill for stuffing
black thread for eyes to embroider on or,
If you want you can use safety eyes, (affix evenly apart at Rnd 7)
Small amount of orange yarn for Chicks beak, legs and feet
Needle to join pieces together. 

Ducks head and body are made as 1 piece, wings, legs beak are all seperate pieces, and sewn to the main piece. It is useful to use a stitch marker, moving up after every round is completed, especialy when working the ducks feet and legs.
