Easter Ducks and Chicks

Along with bunnies I wanted to find a crochet version of chicks and ducks to put in the Easter baskets this year. This first pattern I found and made is a free pattern that can be found under Duck in the Easter links for those who would like to try it. It was a great practice project in working in Amigurumi. The round pattern of the foundation was simple to follow and there was little that needed to be sewn on after completion. This would be a great project for teaching Amigurumi to children. It also makes a great year round toy. Ducks and chickens are not limited to Easter. Kids could make a farm yard of animals.

The chick pattern was a mini ami pattern from Amigurumi World. I missed this pattern when originally looking for Easter patterns. I was taken by the mini bunnies, but did not appreciate the mini chicks as potential Easter toys. The pattern was more complicated than the Lion Brand free one above, but it was still easy and created a very cute finished product. I will definitely be making more of these for next year's baskets.
