Quack! Quack! Crochet a little duck, amigurumi-style.
This little duck is a quick and easy amigurumi project.
It is worked in three pieces, each constructed in the round, so a stitch marker is important.

I use a large 12mm safety eye to attach my head to the body (easy-peasy and it allows the duck to have a moveable head), but you can always sew yours together.

I use US terms, so single crochet is the same as UK double crochet here.
Chain (ch)
Single crochet (sc)
Stitches (sts)
Single Crochet 2 Together (sc2tog)

To single crochet 2 together:

Insert hook into next stitch.
Yarn over, pull up a loop. (2 loops on hook)
Insert hook into next stitch.
Yarn over, pull up a loop (3 loops on hook)
Yarn over and pull through all 3 loops.
