Introduction: Amigurumi – Crochet Duckling “Nakinaknak”

Before we can start crocheting the Amigurumi Duckling, it is important to prepare well. Here you will find all necessary information about prerequisites, materials, and size that you need. If you need help, you can simply use the corresponding additional links.

Attention! Amigurumis are very cute and, therefore, not only popular among adults. Children often see them as toys, so you should be especially careful. Amigurumis that are not intended for play should be kept out of the reach of children. If an Amigurumi is meant to be played with by children, you should strictly adhere to the guidelines for toys. If you plan to give away or sell Amigurumis (license for sellers), you must strictly adhere to the legal requirements for toys and display the required CE marking.

Prerequisites

The following techniques should already be familiar to you so that you can easily follow this crochet pattern for the Amigurumi Duckling. If you do not master all of them yet, you will find comprehensive tutorials here to learn them.

  • Crochet Chain Stitches
  • Crochet Magic Ring
  • Crochet Slip Stitches
  • Decreases
  • Half Double Crochet Stitches (US!)
  • Increases
  • Loops of a Stitch
  • Single Crochet Stitches (US!)
  • spiral rounds
  • Turning Chain Stitches

Note! By offsetting regular increases and decreases, they become almost invisible. You can recognize regular increases by the phrase “double every … stitch,” and regular decreases by the phrase “crochet together every … and … stitch”. The stitch chart for spheres and circles might also be helpful for you.

Note! Using a special technique for invisible decreases makes them nearly invisible. Although this technique requires a bit of practice, it’s worth giving it a try.

Supplies

The depicted Amigurumi Duckling was made using the materials listed here. You can crochet the Amigurumi Duckling with a different yarn if you use an appropriate needle size. You will get a comparable result if you use exactly these materials. In addition to the materials, you will also find a list of the necessary tools and supplies here.

Crochet Hook

You will need a crochet hook with a size of B or C (alphabetic) or 1 1/2 (numeric). For converting to other sizes, the crochet hook size converter will help you. I have selected some great crochet hooks for you here.

Filling

For filling, I used synthetic filling made of 100% polyester. However, there are numerous alternatives for filling material. If you’ve run out of filling, I’ve prepared a refill for you here.

Pins

You’ll also need a few pins. The more colorful your collection, the better. If you need more, I’ve found something for you.

Safety Eyes

Amount: 2 Colour: black Size: 3/8inch Alternatives? Amigurumi Eyes Help? View example

Scissors

You’ll need any scissors. It’s best to use your most beautiful scissors because it brings you joy. If you don’t have really nice scissors, I’ve picked out some lovely ones for you.

Wool Needle

You’ll need a wool needle with a blunt tip. The thickness of the wool needle should match the thickness of your yarn. You might like the set of wool needles I’ve picked out for you.

Yarn – Schachenmayr – Catania – orange – 281

I used yarn in the shade Orange. The material is 100% cotton. The yardage is 137 yds / 1.75 oz. If you want to replenish your supply, I’ve already picked out the matching yarn for you here.

Yarn – Schachenmayr – Catania – yellow – 208

I used yarn in the shade Sun. The material is 100% cotton. The yardage is 137 yds / 1.75 oz. If you want to replenish your supply, I’ve already picked out the matching yarn for you here.

Note! The specified yarn was used for the example shown here. In principle, you can use any yarn and an appropriate needle size. However, the quality of the material also affects the quality of the result, so you should avoid cutting corners in the wrong place. Also, the thickness of the yarn and the needle will influence the size of the outcome, which you can, of course, intentionally take advantage of.

Note! I have used safety eyes here. If you have never attached safety eyes before, you can also find detailed instructions on how to attach safety eyes here. In addition to a wide selection of other safety eyes, there are also numerous alternatives for amigurumi eyes. Simply use the eyes that you like best.

Size

Here are the size specifications for the crocheted duckling. The height was measured while sitting. Please note that the actual size depends on the yarn used, the size of the crochet hook, and individual crochet tension.

Needle SizeYardageSize
Crochet Hook B, C or 1 1/2137 yds / 1.75 oz6 inches
Crochet Hook C, D or 2 1/2120 yds / 1.75 oz?
Crochet Hook E or 493 yds / 1.75 oz?

Note! If you want to change the size, you can simply use a thicker or thinner yarn with a suitable needle size. Simply doubling the rounds, rows, and stitches, on the other hand, will only result in an uneven outcome.

For the Amigurumi Crochet Duckling, we first crochet the head, body, wings, beak, and legs. Afterward, all parts are sewn together, and then your crocheted duckling is already finished.

Finish Amigurumi Duckling

Once all parts are finished crocheting, you can sew your Amigurumi Duckling together. However, it is helpful to put the items together with pins. So you see if the positions are correct and can still easily make changes.

Sew Head to Body

First, we sew the head all around to the body. Both openings face each other. The pointed side of the body is the center of the back, and the midpoint between the eyes is on the front. You can orient yourself using the pattern for sewing open parts together.

Sew Beak to Head

Afterward, we sew the beak all around to the head with the remaining thread end. To do this, first, pin it around with pins. It sits exactly in the middle between the eyes, with the top edge at the same height as the top edge of the eyes. Now you can sew the beak piece by piece. Finally, secure the thread end inside.

Sew Wings to Body

Next, fold the wings flat and sew them to the body with the openings using the thread ends. They sit horizontally around the 27th round and have a distance of 14 stitches on the front. Once the wings are securely sewn, secure the thread ends inside the body.

Sew Legs to Body

Now we sew the legs with the flat-folded opening to the underside of the body. Use the thread ends for sewing and secure them later inside the legs. The legs sit around the 9th round with a distance of 4 stitches in the middle.

Done!

Great, you did it! Your Amigurumi Duckling looks surely at least as cute. Therefore, we would be very happy about a comment with a photo!
