After five or so attempts at making this, I finally succeeded. It's rated as a "beginner" pattern, but I really had a lot of trouble working with Fun Fur yarn. Finally, out of determination to prove to myself I could do this, since it appears to be in the "by kids for kids" list of patterns on Lion Brand Yarn's web site, I decided to go with the next larger size hook, and it worked beautifully. I wanted to make these for Easter, and now I know I can. Woo hoo! There's a rabbit pattern as well that I'll make when I get some white Fun Fur this weekend. I did the crocheting on this last night, then this morning finished the sewing, stuffing, and adding body parts.

I think it turned out really cute. Even my significant other was impressed. *s*





(Yes, I made the doily underneath him, too. *beams with pride* Not bad considering I've only been crocheting for a couple of months.)

Great job!  I saw this pattern in a couple of places and said beginner?  No project with Fun Fur is ever beginner.  Consider yourself at least intermediate!   Grin Grin

I agree about the Fun Fur. I tried this pattern when I first learned to crochet and couldn't do it. Now that I've got a few other projects under my belt, and I played with the yarn half a dozen times, it finally worked out.

Thanks for your comment.
Thank you, too, Josette.

How adorable!

I've been crocheting for over 30 years but have never been brave enough to try the fun fur, but something like this would be great to try - I think you've inspired me  Grin

Oh that is so cute! I want to hug the duckie! I want one. Good job. It looks fantastic. I hate working with fun fur. I'm super impressed.

I think you should give it a try. The pattern itself is really simple, but the fun fur is a challenge to work with. If you make one, be sure and post it...I wanna see!

Thanks! Fun fur is a challenge, that's for sure, but it sure turned out cute.

how cute!! I've seen these patterns and always wanted to try them for my kids, but like above...fun fur is a hassle sometimes. I may try anyway just for something to do on a rainy day.
