Ducklings and Goslings crochet pattern

After finishing my Duck and Goose pattern, I couldn’t resist a little seasonally-appropriate addition to the families, so here’s my new pattern: Ducklings and Goslings!

About the Pattern

My goal for this design was the simplicity of a rubber ducky combined with the realistic shape and markings of real baby ducks and geese. As a result, the assembly is super-simple – you only need to stitch the bill to the head, and the head to the body, and your adorable palm-sized baby bird is finished!

This pattern includes three mix-and-match options. By swapping the duckling and gosling bill shapes and the three different head and body marking options and changing the colours, you can make a wide variety of ducks and geese.

The single colour option is easy to crochet, and if you’re pressed for time you could make a whole flock of ducklings in yellow, brown, grey, black, white etc – fast and totally cute! Or, add in the lifelike markings to make even more adorably realistic babies.

Tip: You can also brush your finished birds (before adding the bills) if you’d like to make fluffy ducklings! (See my Brushed Amigurumi tutorial for full instructions and examples.)

Meet the Ducklings and Goslings!

First up, we have the classic single-colour duckling (or gosling, if you swap the bill!):

Next, the duckling markings, inspired by adorable baby Mallards with their distinctive eye stripe:

And, last but not least, the gosling markings, with a simpler colour pattern inspired by baby Canada Geese:

(While these colourways can also apply to other types of baby ducks and geese, I have an ulterior motive for naming them Mallard and Canada Goose: once I have enough sales of the Duck and Goose crochet pattern to justify making adult Mallard and Canada Goose Expansion Packs for it, these babies will be ready and waiting to greet their parents!)

Links to Buy and Deals
