    Tiny duck Crochet Pattern

    Thanks for checking out my tiny duck crochet pattern. I’m in love with this tiny little amigurumi duck! I originally designed this duck as a bath toy for my daughters doll house and it’s included in the dollhouse bathroom crochet pattern bundle too. Saying that, I’m so pleased with how he turned out I am now making more. This time I will be adding some keychains onto them to give out as little gifts for Easter.

    The tiny little duck measures just 4.5cm long, 2.5cm wide and 3cm tall. See, Told you he was tiny! Additionally they are super quick and easy to make, and also a great way of using up leftover scraps of yarn. Even though mine is yellow I’m sure he’d look beautiful in other colors too.

    How to crochet a miniature duck

    Firstly to make the little duck I used DK (weight 3) yarn in yellow for the duck, rust for his beak and black For his eyes. The crochet pattern is easy skill level, you’ll need to know your basic crochet stitches as well as being able to increase and decrease. The size can also make the job a little fiddly. Due to his size you’ll only need a small amount of toy stuffing to fill him out. The tiny little duck is made in 5 separate parts which need to be sewn together and his eyes are also sewn on. To sum up you will need to be confident sewing to put him together.
