Or if no video then at least step by step pictures!

Could someone post a video showing how to do this? I have been trying this forever it seems and can not do it right...it would be sooooo helpful :')

I like this little duckie, thank you for sharing!

love duckies! a bathroom isn't compete with out a rubber duckie, so why not a crocheted one too! plus it's too cute

I havae a grandson who LOVES duckies! I've GOT to make this for him!

love the duckie

This looks simple, & also very cute. Since it can be made in a variety of colors, it would be appropriate for a boy or girl!

I'd do this little ducky BUT I'd also do the whale!!

This little guy is too cute, I will be making several of these.

I prefer the crocheted baby duck but without the ribbon because ribbons can be a swallowing hazard.

I absolutely love duckies for babies, and this one is perfect and baby friendly. I can't wait to stitch this up for my upcoming 1st grandchild!

The instructions seem to be clear and I am partial to rubber duckies because my daughter (20) loves them, I plan to make a whole flock of them. :)

wish i knew how to crochet,this is soo cute!! guess i'l have to pay someone to teach me :(

Super easy pattern, made 2 today: one each for a friend's great-grandtwins. Thanks!

I am brand new at crocheting and this is my first project since learning some of the basic stitches in crochet. In trying to follow the directions in the pattern, the last part of the 1st row ( turn, 10 sc) confused me. Also "2 sc in first sc" and "2 sc in last sc" in 2nd row. Is this different from 2 sc in the first st (stitch)? How is the row under Head ( Ch 1, 2 sc in first st. 1 sc in each sc to last st. 2 sc in last st. 10 sc. Turn) interpreted? Help would be appreciated.

This duck is just too cute!!! It is also very easy to do. My brother's wife is expecting a boy and we made these ducks as favors for her shower. They were a huge hit. We made blue ducks with god trim to represent the Pittsburgh Panthers school colors because were big fans.

I can't get the head to work right. It never has the beak on it. Can anyone help?

I made this for our granddaughters black lab for Easter. I used a size F hook and the lily yarn. I stuffed it and put in squeakers that I get at the pet store. Dog just loves it.
