Mallard Duck Crochet Pattern – Easy Amigurumi

Last week, I was taking a hike at my favorite local park. This park has several hiking trails that wind up through a lush forest and many local wildflowers to identify. The best part of the park (IMO) is the stream that runs along the entire main trail. It truly adds an element of peace to the park with the sounds of flowing water and several small waterfalls along the path. As my husband and I were walking up the path to the first bridge in the park, I heard a faint quacking in the distance. There around the bend was an adorable mallard duck floating down the stream. We hurried up to the bridge to stand over the stream and watch as the duck paddled its way around rocks, quacking loudly along the way. As someone who loves ducks and wildlife in general, we stood and watched this little mallard for several minutes. There is just something so neat about animals in their natural habitat. Of course, I had to start a pattern for a crochet mallard duck as soon as we got home. I hope you enjoy making this plush as much as I enjoyed watching the duck swim down the stream.

For this pattern, I used Premier Parfait Chunky yarn (which is my favorite yarn) for a soft pastel look.Β Click here to get Premier yarn for this project.Β  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!

  • Crochet hook (Size 7.0 mm)
  • Polyfil – fiberfill stuffing
  • Black felt for eyes
  • Yarn Needle
  • Scissors
  • Stitch marker
  • Sewing pins

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)
  • HDC – half double crochet
  • DC – double crochet
  • TR – treble or triple crochet
  • FO – fasten off
  • Magic ring – Make a loop, leaving a long tail to work with. Insert hook in the center of loop, yarn over, and draw up a loop. Yarn over, 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 USES US CROCHET TERMS AND IS WORKED IN CONTINUOUS ROUNDS.
