Duckie


Here is a duck that I knit for my sister from the book Knitted Toys by Fiona McTague. I changed the feet and legs as they were knit flat and the feet were made from two pieces and then it was all sewn together. Instead I just made the legs like socks with some extra shaping in the toes. The yarn was Dale of Norway Baby Ull. I stuffed the Duckie with wool and made up a little fringed scarf for him.
My sister raises ducks so I thought she would find this little toy funny and I noticed the last time I visited Jeanne that the Duckie had a prominant place on her fireplace. I was so flattered!

Do you use that book a lot? I've eyed it but never decided whether I want to buy it or not. Your duck is adorable!
