This past weekend I had a bit of time so I began working on a crochet project based on this pattern. However I altered it slightly to make a duck. By curving the beak and adding feet I adapted the pattern to a duck. This design works very well for anything bird like, and I have plans to try and make several different baby animals using the basic shape and then figuring out how to make feet and ears.
As my first crochet project other than a hat I am quite pleased with the outcome.
Of course the entire time I worked on this I had the infamous “The Llama Song” stuck in my head. I shared the song with my roommate and both of us have been bursting out into song at random moments over cereal and while doing the dishes.
