So, I totally love penguins. They're so adorable and blorpy. These are some little guys that I made one day after having a major amigurumi craving (does anyone else experience these? I hope it's not just me.  Wink )


If you want this pattern as a pdf, it's here: http://mspremiseconclusion.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/amigurumi-penguin.pdf

What you will need to make these: Some worsted weight yarn in whatever colour you would like your penguin to be (Main Colour), as well as white yarn and orange/yellow yarn (Beak Colour). I used safety eyes as the eyeballs (but just embroider on the eyes if you plan on giving this to a little kid.) I used a 3.75mm hook. The abbreviations are: Ch = chain, Sc = single crochet, ScDec = single crochet decrease and Sl st = slip stitch.


BODY

In Main Colour, Ch 2.
Row 1: 6 Sc in second chain from hook. (6 St)
Row 2: 2 Sc in each stitch around. (12 St)
Row 3: (Sc in next stitch. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () around. (18 St)
Row 4: (Sc in next 2 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () around. (24 St)
Row 5: (Sc in next 3 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () around. (30 St)
Row 6-9: Sc in each stitch around. (30 St)
Row 10: (Sc in next 4 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () around. (36 St)
Row 11-15: Sc in each stitch around. (36 St)
Row 16: (Sc in next 4 stitches. ScDec.) Repeat () around. (30 St)
Row 17: (Sc in next 3 stitches. ScDec.) Repeat () around. (24 St)
Row 18: (Sc in next 2 stitches. ScDec.) Repeat () around. (18 St)
Row 19: (Sc in next stitch. ScDec.) Repeat () around. (12 St)
Turn the body inside out ('V' side out) and stuff it firmly. Continue the final row once the body is stuffed.
Row 20: ScDec in each stitch around. (6 St)
Fasten off yarn. Weave the loose end through each remaining stitch. Pull tightly to close.

FACE

In White, Ch 5.
Row 1: Sc in second chain from hook. Sc in next 2 stitches. 4 Sc in next chain stitch. Working on the back side of chain stitches, Sc in next two stitches. 3 Sc in first chain stitch. (12 St)
Row 2: 2 Sc in next stitch. Sc in next 2 stitches. 2 Sc in each of the next 4 stitches. Sc in next 2 stitches. 2 Sc in each of the next 3 stitches. (20 St)
Row 3: Sc in next stitch. 2 Sc in next stitch. Sc in next 2 stitches. (Sc in next stitch. 2 Sc in next stitch). Repeat () 3 more times. Sc in next 2 stitches. (Sc in next stitch. 2 Sc in next stitch). Repeat () 2 more times. (28 St)
Row 4: Sc in next 2 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch. Sc in next 2 stitches. (Sc in next 2 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () 3 more times. Sc in next 2 stitches. (Sc in next 2 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () 2 more times. (36 St)
Row 5: Sc in next 26 stitches. Sl st to next stitch. (27 St)
Fasten off yarn. Leave a very long piece for sewing the face onto the body. Place stitch marker on last stitch made in Row 5. This will mark the bottom of the face.

WING

In Main Colour, Ch 2.
Row 1: 4 Sc in second chain from hook. (4 St)
Row 2: (Sc in next stitch. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () once more. (6 St)
Row 3: (Sc in next stitch. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () around. (9 St)
Row 4: (Sc in next 2 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () around. (12 St)
Row 5-6: Sc in each stitch around. (12 St)
Row 7: (Sc in next 2 stitches. ScDec.) Repeat () around. (9 St)
Fasten off yarn. Leave a long enough piece for sewing the wing onto the body.

BEAK

In Beak Colour, Ch 4.
Row 1: Sl st in third chain from hook. 3 Sc in next chain stitch. Working on the back side of the chain stitches, Sl st in next stitch. (5 St) Fasten off yarn. Leave a long enough piece for sewing the beak to the face. Weave in the other end.

FOOT

In Beak Colour, Ch 4.
Toe 1: Sl st in second chain from hook. Sl st in next 2 stitches. (3 St)
Toe 2: Ch 5. Sl st in second chain from hook. Sl st in next 3 stitches. (4 St)
Toe 3: Ch 4. Sl st in second chain from hook. Sl st in next 2 stitches. (3 St)
Row 1: Ch 1. Sc between Toe 3 and Toe 2. Sc between Toe 2 and Toe 1. (2 St)
Row 2: Ch 1. Turn. ScDec. (1 St) Fasten off yarn. Leave a long enough piece for sewing the foot to the body. Weave in the other end. Make 2 feet.


ASSEMBLY

With the 'V' side of the face facing you, sew the beak on to the top of the face (like in the picture). Attach the eyes to either side of the beak.
Sew the face onto the body starting at Rows 5 of the body. Stitch all around the perimeter of the face, using stitches on the back side of the face so that the stitches don't show from the front.
Turn each wing 'V' side out, press the wing flat and stitch the opening shut. Sew the wings onto either side of the body at Row 9.
Sew the feet onto the bottom of the penguin, so that they are roughly centered.

Ta da! You're done. You can also tweak this pattern to make a chick, too. Here's how:


Using the Penguin Pattern, make the penguin body in the colour you would like the chick to be (lets call it, the Chick Colour).

Before you begin stuffing the body, secure safety eyes between Rows 8-9, about 4-5 stitches apart. (If you are using beads for eyes, you can sew those on at the end.)

Make the penguin wings in Chick Colour.

Make the penguin feet in Beak Colour.

The chick beak is a in different style than the penguin beak. Here is how to make the chick beak:

In Beak Colour, Ch 2.
Row 1: 4 Sc in second chain from hook. (4 St)
Row 2: (Sc in next stitch. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () once more. (6 St)
Row 3: (Sc in next 2 stitches. 2 Sc in next stitch.) Repeat () once more. (8 St)
Sl st to next stitch. Fasten off yarn. Leave a long enough piece for sewing the beak onto the face.

Stuff the beak a tiny bit (itll be very small). Sew the beak onto the face, in between the eyes.

Sew the two feet onto the bottom of the body, just like in the penguin pattern.

Sew the two wings onto either side of the body, just like in the penguin pattern.

I hope you enjoy!

Can I just ask what eyes you used because I used the safety eyes and then when it came to attaching them they stuck out too much from the body and looked a bit silly, granted my safety eyes are alot bigger than yours, does anyone know where I can get small ones from???
