I have the cutest little duck crochet pattern to share. Today we call them Amigurumi which means a crocheted or knitted stuffed toy.

Where does the name Amigurumi come from?

The word comes from the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll. Most Amigurumi are animals but they can be people or just about any object that is crocheted or knitted and stuffed.

Perfect for the Easter Basket

This would be perfect for an Easter basket or a gift or decoration at a baby shower. The pattern is from an American Thread Star Book titled Aunt Lydia’s Design Studio. The booklet doesn’t have a date listed, but by the looks of the fashions it should be late 1960’s, early 1970’s. With a little investigating, I was right, the date is 1970.

Where to find Aunt Lydia’s Rug Yarn

Quite A Quacker Duck Amigurumi Crochet Pattern Materials

The yarn required for the duck crochet pattern is Aunt Lydia’s Rug Yarn.  The yarn colors are White and Bongo (Tangerine Orange).

There are a few hundred listings for Aunt Lydia’s Rug Yarn on ebay in a variety of colors. I even found a package of two Bongo 70 yard skeins.

 

There is plenty of Aunt Lydia’s Rug Yarn on Amazon too.

The gauge of 3 sts = 1 inch is given in this crochet pattern so that helps. Two buttons are used for the eyes, but if it’s a gift for a baby or toddler I’d substitute something that cannot be removed. Maybe use some black yarn sewn on in a circle for each eye.

What is cuter than a crocheted animal toy? Not too much. The adorable Dachshund or Weiner dog as it’s affectionately referred to, is the perfect size and shape to crochet into a stuffed toy.

This vintage pattern uses felt for the ears, legs, tail and facial features. It’s taken from Quick to make Gifts Coats & Clark’s 1955 booklet.

If you do a search on crochet amigurumi dachshund pattern on the internet, literally thousands of different crocheted toys will come up. Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals.

From Wikipedia: The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll.

They are typically animals, but can take any form such as monsters, cartoon characters, ornaments and many more. Amigurumi started becoming popular in the West only recently in 2003. Since then, you can find them everywhere.
