Free amigurumi pattern: Sarah and Duck

Sarah and Duck, quack!

Sarah and Duck, quack!

Sarah and Duck, quack!

Hello my dear friends! It’s been so long since I’ve updated my blog with a free amigurumi pattern and since Christmas is just around the corner, I thought you might like a little gift from me to you!

Sarah and Duck has been a family favourite ever since my boys started paying special attention to the cartoon when it came on TV. I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist making a Sarah and Duck doll…I’m so glad I did!

I wish I could’ve been there to catch the Sarah and Duck live stage show this year. I guess having their dolls with me would have to be the second best thing!

It has taken me a long time to sit down and write this pattern (it’s quite a difficult pattern to write!), I hope you will enjoy it!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Please do follow me on instagram @amigurumei for weekly updates!
