Ducky "Quack Quack" Crocheted Duck Pattern


Before I share this pattern with you guys, I would like to say a few words:

This pattern was written and created by myself.


My daughter was the inspiration for it, because she loves, loves, loves duckies and I refused to give her the soaked, wet bath – sponge – ducky to snuggle with in bed.

I choose to share this pattern with our community for FREE, but there are a few things that I ask of you as the person using it:


- Do NOT sell this pattern or claim it as your own.
- Do NOT alternate the pattern.
- Feel free to share it with as many friends and family as you want, but include a link to this blog post.
- You may sell the finished product, but please mention my name as designer (Patricia Reazin) and include a link to where you found the pattern. (we'd love it if you leave us a comment here so we can enjoy your work!)

We would also appreciate if you would leave a “like” on our Facebook page and/or follow us on any of our social media sites (you can find the links in the sidebar).  Thanks!

Now that that's out of the way, I introduce you to Ducky "Quack Quack"!

  1. looking over the pattern, I noticed some things that might be confusing to others...where you have the rows listed as 6 rounds of 18 st, u list a total count of 108 stitches instead of 18 stitches...to a newbie that might be confusing if they only have 18...this appears in a couple places...thought I would give u a heads up...BTW great pattern

    1. I put the total count of stitches so they can just crochet the part in one go without necessarily having to move the stitch marker every round :)
      It's a personal preference for me & that's why I tried to clarify that it's 18 stitches per round but the complete amount of the rows that I mentioned is 108 stitches.
      I hope this helps to clarify it & thank you for commenting :)

  3. All of our grands are grown and ggrands have everything in the world. I like this pattern you did a good job. If I would ever use it I would definitely give the author's name. I do a lot of water coloring and acrylics and always identify where I got my pattern. Good manners.

  21. Thank you VERY much for sharing! I am disabled and spend the better part of my time in the bed but I can can crochet while in the bed. I can't sew but I CAN crochet! And I love to make special things for children who are battling life threatening illnesses and spend much of their time in hospitals. That give my own life a sense of meaning. I'm sure that I will learn of a child who has a special love for ducks.
    Thank you for this free pattern.
    May I ask you a question about your instructions for using this pattern? It is your second instruction. DO NOT Alternate this pattern. Do you mean Do not make any alterations to the patterns?
    Do Not Alternate the Pattern would mean something along the lines of don't put the left arm on the right side and alternate the right arm for the left one. Sorry, I was an English major. And yes, my kids hated me correcting them all the time. I think that you mean you don't want anyone to make any alterations to your pattern. If they are going to use your pattern, then you want them to use it and make it look just like your pattern will make it turn out to look. Anyway. Since I first started writing this about a week ago and must have gotten interrupted, I had a great nephew be born! I might just make him a duck!
