Free Duck Crochet Pattern

Cute Duck Amigurumi pattern

Create your very own adorable duck Amigurumi with this free duck crochet pattern! This is an easy small beginner crochet project that you can make in a few hours. It is a great pattern for left over yarn. I love making mini animal because they just take a little bit of time to create. As a result, you will have such a cute gift.

For the smaller duck Amigurumi, I used sport weight cotton yarn, for the larger version, I used chenille Super Bulky plush yarn.

The pattern below is for a mallard duck, but you can easily change this duck into a duckling, by changing the colors to yellow for the body.

These are the materials that I used for this duck. You can replace them with other materials. If you wish to crochet a larger or smaller version of this little duck, you can just use a thicker or thinner yarn/crochet hook.

The colors below are for the male duck, to create a female duck, change the colors to white and skip the color changes. Or change the color to yellow to create a duckling.
