Here's my newest project. I couldn't decide on what to do for eyes, and decided he was cute without them. The pattern is a little bit different (the beak and the body) than the duck in the picture. Please try it and let me know how it comes out!

I have never seen such a perfect rubber duck! And I think he's great without eyes.

My aunt has a collection from devil duckies that have tattos and horns to pink breast cancer awareness ducks. This would be the ultimate to her collection especially since she loves to crochet as well.

Eyes - what about some (not going to young children) little crocheted rounds?
