Why You’ll Love These Crochet Duck Patterns

Generally, ducks are easy animals to crochet and make adorable toys for kids. Not to mention, they are customizable and will make great gifts and market sellers as well.

  • Sizes. You will find a variety of duck sizes in this list. But you can always change the size of your crochet ducks using thinner or thicker yarn. Personally, I love bulky chenille yarn for my Amigurumi animals. 
  • Customization. The best way to customize your crochet ducks is by using your favorite colors and adding accessories to make them unique, such as bows and hats. Or embroidering to give them your personal touch.
  • Yarn Options. Stuffed animals can be made with a few different yarns. It all depends on the purpose of the toy. For example, if it’s made for a child, it’s always a good idea to use a safe and durable yarn for kids, such as cotton yarn.

Can beginners make crochet ducks?

Yes, crochet ducks are easy to crochet. Most of the patterns in this list don’t require much sewing and unique shapes. So, if you’re comfortable with the basics of Amigurumi, you will undoubtedly be able to crochet a duck.

Here are a few tips on how to pick the right pattern:

  • Check for the level of difficulty.
  • Pick a smaller pattern so you won’t be frustrated if it’s too large for your skills.
  • Pick an easy yarn that doesn’t pill or fray, as they are more manageable for beginners.
  • Stay away from patterns that involve too much hand-sewing.

Supplies Needed:

Materials and tools to make Amigurumi are the best investments if you intend to make them regularly. Here are the ones you will use the most.

  1. Yarn: The best thing to do is check the chosen pattern for the recommended yarn. I like worsted-weight (#4) cotton or good-quality acrylic for stuffed animals, as they hold up the shape better.
  2. Crochet hooks: Again, each pattern has its recommended hook size. If you’re using worsted-weight yarn, the best hook sizes range from 3.5 mm (US E) to 4.00 mm (US G).
  3. Stuffing Fiber: You will need good-quality fiber. My favorite is Poly-Fil. It’s affordable, washable, and great for Amigurumi.
  4. Stitch Markers: they are essential for Amigurumi making because you usually do continuous rounds. You need them to mark your first or last stitches as you go.
  5. Scissors: a sharp pair or yarn scissors is needed to cut your leftover tails.
  6. Tapestry needle: it’s good to have them in different sizes and shapes. My favorite are the ones with the blunt tips.
  7. Safety eyes: It’s safer to embroider the eyes if you’re making ducks for young children. But plastic safety eyes are very practical for everyone else.
  8. Safety eye placement tools: these tools are a game changer. I bought a set in two sizes, and they help me every time.

The skills you will need

Most crochet duck patterns are made with the Amigurumi technique. Here are the techniques commonly used for Amigurumi ducks:

  • Magic circle (mc): needed to avoid a hole at the beginning of your project.
  • Crochet in the round: Generally, for amigurumi, you will crochet in continuous rounds, meaning you don’t join the rounds with a slip stitch.
  • Single Crochet (sc): this is basically the only stitch you will use for most stuffed animals and dolls.
  • Changing colors: you will need some basic skills in yarn color change. The mallard duck patterns, for example, require color change.
  • Basic sewing: sewing amigurumi is easy, and many free tutorials are available on YouTube.
  • Weaving-in ends: For most stuffed animals, if they are small and simple, you will have only a few ends to weave in at the end.
