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.

Today’s crochet bag pattern freebie could be an oxymoron. A Crocheted Knitting Bag. Many times those of us that crochet also knit. So this bag would make sense. Some like one craft more than the other. Which do you prefer? Or do you like both.

This pattern is from an American Thread Company Star Book titled Crocheted Fashions. The crocheted bag uses Heavy Crochet Mercerized Cotton in Forest Green and White.

Vintage Thread

This vintage thread is similar to a Size 5 crochet thread. The balls contained 100 yards. Use a No. 4 steel crochet hook, but since no gauge is given, you’ll have to experiment. Knitting sticks or handles complete the top of the crochet bag.

I did a search on Amazon and came up with DMC Petra Crochet Cotton Size 5. It looks similar.

 

 

Make sure to read the shipping times carefully on these threads. A couple of them I noticed say “usually ships in 1 to 3 months.” I don’t know about you, but I want my thread a lot sooner than that.
