Crochet Duck Pattern FREE 'Lil Chickie Duck'

free crochet duck pattern - crochet easter duck pattern - free crochet easter patterns
A free Crochet Duck pattern, for an Easter duck.  I love this time of year, lots of chocolate, but I feel the kids get so much sweet stuff it's nice to give them a little cuddly Easter-themed crochet duck 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
a 4.00 mm hook
2 x 50g yellow yarn  (we will be working with 2 strands held together)                 

black thread for eyes to embroider on or

If you want you can use safety eyes, * (affix evenly apart at Rnd 7)
A 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 separate pieces, and sewn to the main piece. It is useful to use a stitch marker, moving up after every round is completed, especially when working the duck's feet and legs.

Sl st = Slip stitch
Hdc= Half Double Crochet
Dc = Double Crochet
