Mallard duck (free pattern)

Image
Hello,
I've had a great week, finally I was able to finish a few projects (these ducks basically) I've had in my backpack for months. I crocheted one a year ago when I visitid Japan, but never had the motivation to move the pattern to the computer from the sketch book (and I probably threw some of it away thinkin I wouldn't use it again.)
I love this season when migratory birds come back and all kinds of small birds start to sing during the day and build their nests for spring and summer. Even though I guess many mallards stay in Finland during the winter (people feed them)

But to the pattern
You need: 
A crochet hook (I used 2,5mm)
4ply or Fingering yarn (brown, white, yellow and green)
Safety eyes
Filling

Head and torso
Ch 2, 6sc to the 2nd ch from the hook. (Brown for female/green for male)
1) 2sc to the every sc (12sc)
2)(2 sc in first sc, sc in next sc) repeat around (18 sc)
3) Sc in every sc (18sc)
4) Sc inevery sc (18sc)
