Duck Amigurumi Pattern “Fair is Fowl”

Here’s a cheerful, playful duck amigurumi pattern for your crochet fun and pleasure! As they say, “Fair is fowl, and fowl is fair!” I find yellow to be such a cheerful color. It brings to mind, the sun, spring, and just everything bright and warm! So once you add yellow ducks into the mix, then everything becomes even that much more cuddly cute!

This Duck Amigurumi has an oval shape to it, a flat bill, and short stubby wings as it’s still a wee baby and hasn’t quite grown into its wings yet. Don’t worry little one, you’ll get there!

I’ve also included an egg shell design as a bonus, so you can create a Hatchling in Egg. It’s made so that the hatchling wears the egg shell on top of its head, like a hat! The body is then tucked inside the bottom half of the egg shell. Together the white and yellow colors really make a nice complement.

I hope you enjoy! Once born, they’ll be sure to imprint onto you.

And if you like this project, be sure to also check out my Spring Chick – Eggy pattern. It makes a great companion piece to the Duck Amigurumi!

The written crochet pattern is below, but I’ve also created a video amigurumi tutorial for this Duck! It’s great for beginners to follow or if you just want to crochet along with me! Happy crocheting!

ASSEMBLY
1.    Sew Top Egg Shell to top of head. I don’t sew the points down and sew around the circle only.
2.    It is optional whether you want to sew the Duck into the bottom part of the Egg. I find it more interactive and fun to be able to take the Duck in and out of its shell!  But if you want to hang the duck up somewhere, it would be good to sew the bottom egg shell on.

    […] The duck pattern was released right before Easter and it is too cute! It’s also smaller than I thought it would be – I was thinking it’d be about the same as the chick. But he’s so cute and squishy! I almost added in a plastic egg filled with rice to make it into a shaker, but it made the duck too hard. You can find the “Fair is Fowl” pattern here. […]
