Doris duck is made in 3 parts: bill, head and body, wings (optional).
Like most amigurumi, this piece is worked in a continuous spiral. do not join rounds. Using a stitch marker (such as a piece of string) can help keep track of rounds. To change colours for a round, a round of slip stitches define the colour change.: with first colour complete a round of slip stitches and fasten off; begin the new colour with a slip stitch and a chain 1 in the round previous to the slip stitches to attach the yarn; work the first round of the new colour the stitches of the round prior to the slip stitches. Stuff as you go (polyester filling, cotton, yarn scraps, etc.)

I have two degrees (B.Sc. and M.Sc) in Biology. My university career taught me to be observant (the critical eye) and I use everyday observations, math, and my imagination when creating new designs.
