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 Jonesy was finished, I immediately got many ideas for more birds.
And after a year, I had this crazy idea. Long ago I purchased a little Snoopy plush wearing an aviator helmet in a local shop. It was sitting in our bedroom in a big net and when I looked at it more closely, it inspired me to make such a hat for my duckling. And it turned out ever so fabulous. Here is another picture of Jonesy, but this time he’s a very sturdy aviator amigurumi duckling! The helmet now is a part of the pattern, so everyone can make their own little aviator.
The part of this duckling pattern I found the hardest to design were the feet. I had no idea how to make them. I decided to 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 sewn and crocheted together and it is very easy to do 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, scarf and helmet are made with my favourite Létt Lopi yarn, a 100% wool. Here are some more pictures of Jonesy. Below the pictures you can find info about and links to buy the pattern.
