They fit great! (at some point I need a photo)
I maaaaay have janked up the pattern a smidge around row 5 or so of the pattern, but it shouldn’t be enough to be noticeable.

switched to 1-row stripes for the last few decrease rows to make sure I didn’t run out of the purple

Frogged and recast in child size
Time listed is extremely misleading — I think I did the actual pieces in an hour or two, but it took me a couple of weeks to get around to seaming, and a couple more to get around to sewing the head to the body.
FWIW, since I was doing it a single color (to mimic a carved wooden duck), I just threw out the two beak pieces. Honestly I think they’re way too fiddly, both to knit and to attach.
I think I put the head on backwards, but that looks more like a duck to me. I also shortened the head a bit, since it looked too long in all of the photos. (Probably should have written down how much at the time, alas.)
Unlikely to make more, which is actually kind of a bummer, I would’ve liked to have given them to the whole gang.
