Now, here is another spring and Easter like animal, a yellow duckling. I proudly present Jonesy, my new crochet duckling pattern.
This crochet duckling is the first bird pattern I have designed and I’m absolutely fond of the result. When Jones was finished, I immediately got many ideas for more birds….
The part of this duckling pattern I was most worried about, where the feet. I had no idea how to make them. My crochet skills actually are fairly basic. Skills of interesting techniques I don’t have, since I only ever crocheted animals. But I decided to just start with a flat, upside down triangle and it worked out wonderfully perfect. I started by making a narrow triangle, till it was wide enough and then realized I could easily decrease the top of it to get the pointed middle toe. For both feet, two pieces are sewed and crocheted together and it is very easy to do so and gives a fantastic result.
This cheerful duckling is 4,9 inch/ 12,5 cm tall, sitting. I designed him without a scarf, but soon realized a scarf looked perfect on this little duck. Both duckling and scarf are made with my favourite Létt Lopi yarn, a 100% wool. Here are some more pictures of Jonesy. The first picture nicely displays his shape and proportions and even shows the lovely feet.
Where you can get the pattern.
The crochet pattern for this spring time, cheerful duckling Jonesy, you can find in my shop and in my shop at Ravelry. The pattern contains a clear description of how to crochet and attach this animal, illustrated with pictures. It tells you what materials you need, the Lopi colour numbers, in short, everything you need to know to make this little duck.
I love this picture too so added it later, here’s one last image of my crochet duck pattern.
