Little Duck Free Crochet Pattern – Amigurumi

I have an ongoing tally with myself to keep track of how many ducks and frogs I’ve crocheted. It’s become sort of a competition between the two to see which animal I have crocheted more times than the other. Both ducks and frogs are quite popular in the world of amigurumi so it’s not a surprise that those are my most-crocheted animals. I made a little frog pattern last year that is simple and works up quickly for market-makes, so I wanted to make a simple duck as well. With the creation of this little duck pattern, ducks take the lead! This pattern is perfect for both beginners and seasoned crocheters alike, and best of all, there is a full tutorial for my visual learners (at the bottom of this page). In this post, I’ll walk you through each step to create your very own cute little crochet duck, complete with an optional flower for its head. So grab your yarn and hook, and let’s dive into this free duck crochet pattern together!

For this pattern, I used Premier Parfait Chunky yarn (which is my favorite yarn) for a soft pastel look but you can use any yarn you would like. Click here to get Premier yarn for this project. If you enjoy this pattern, please give me a follow on social media and let me know what other free patterns you would love to see! Also, don’t forget to tag me in your creations on instagram. Happy crocheting 🙂

MATERIALS & TOOLS

ABBREVIATIONS

  • CH – chain
  • SC – single crochet
  • INC – single crochet increase (2 SC in each stitch)
  • DEC – decrease (I use the invisible decrease in all of my creations for a cleaner look)
  • FO – fasten off
  • Magic ring – Make a loop, leaving a long tail to work with. Insert the hook in the center of the loop, yarn over, and draw up a loop. Yarn over, and pull through to make the first chain (this does not count as a stitch). Continue to crochet over the loop and tail with the number of stitches called for. There are many wonderful YouTube videos on how to make a magic circle if you are a visual learner! Always move your stitch marker to the last stitch in the round.

THIS PATTERN IS WORKED IN CONTINUOUS ROUNDS.
