The cats & penguin, are they difficult to make?  I dont know how to crochet, but want to learn because Id love to make little crochet critters like that.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

No, They weren't difficult.  Here is a link to see more cats and to get the pattern:

It is definately worth learning to crochet to make them, and you only need to know how to single crochet Smiley

Zomg! I saw Puffles in the thread title and I couldn't believe it. Three of my really good friends work for Club Penguin. I definitely know what they're getting for their birthdays! Thanks for the inspiration Cheesy

Thanks everyone.  I forgot to add that I used a G hook and Caron's simply soft (Worsted Weight) to make the puffles.  I also used Red heart for some that aren't pictured.  Sorry I didn't write a pattern, but I would love to see any other puffles that you make Smiley

Hi, I didn't use a pattern for the puffles, but I think you can get the general idea.
I first made a ball (I think the middle was around 48 stitches). 
For the eyes, I just made two lopsided circles and joined them with the white yarn, Then I used black embroidery thread to stitch them on, and add the pupil.  I also used the embroidery thread for the mouth.
For the yellow's hair I crocheted fun-fur into a circle and stitched onto the puffles head with the tail.
For the green's head, I used strands of yarn and a latch hook technique.
I hope that helps.

Aww I see U did such a great job I thought the eyes were and the ball was one pattern .

U know scince this is Ur own pattern why dont u sell the puffels I'm sure alot of kids and adults would love them. U have a good imagination I cant look at something and make up my own project I think Ur a pro crocheter if u can do that.my Daughter wants me to thank u for letting me know how it is done now she cant wait for purple puffle and a pink one to. Oh I think I will do the latchhook hair because I never worked with that fuzz stuff and I might mess up with it.Oh I also want to thank u for the puffle instructions.

Aww, thanks crochet monkey.  Disney would probably take issue with me trying to sell a puffle:)  They sell a plush version on the Club Penguin site.  That's actually why I made it, because my boys really wanted them, but I wasn't going to pay for something I could make myself.
I can't wait to see yours!

Alrighty so I made a couple Puffles for my friend's birthday this weekend. He works for Club Penguin and has always been especially fond of the black Puffles. So I made one for him and for his wife.


I added a little flower for the girl Puffle

and they have smirking mouths - which you can barely see because of the black on black but they needed mouths regardless.


My friend just loved them. Thanks again for the inspiration Teachingjonah Grin
