penguin amigurumi

A quick and cute amigurumi penguin pattern for January. We’ll be working in a spiral using a stitch marker to keep track of the rounds. Crochet into the back loop only of all stitches and I’ll be using American crochet terms. I used a 4mm hook and worsted weight yarn but use whatever you like and he’ll just turn out a little bigger or smaller.

Round 1. With grey yarn create a magic ring containing 6sc.

Round 2. 2sc into each stitch (12 stitches total)

Round 3. *2sc into first stitch, 1sc in next stitch. *repeat 6 times (18 stitches total)

Round 4. *2sc into first stitch, 1sc in each of next 2 stitches. *repeat 6 times (24 stitches total)

˜Round 5-14. 1sc in each stitch.

Round 15. *miss 1 stitch, 1sc in each of next 3 stitches. *repeat 6 times (18 stitches total)

Round 16-18. 1sc in each stitch.

STUFF

Round 19. *miss 1 stitch, 1sc in each of next 2 stitches. *repeat 6 times (12 stitches total)

Round 20. slip stitch next 3 stitches, sc, sc, sc, dc, dc, dc, sc, sc, sc. (12 stitches total)

Round 21. 1sc in each stitch.

Round 22. slip stitch next 3 stitches, sc, sc, sc, dc, dc, dc, sc, sc, sc. (12 stitches total)

Round 23. 1sc in each stitch.

STUFF

Round 24. *miss 1 stitch, sc next stitch. *repeat 6 times (6 stitches total)

Round 25-26. Change colour to yellow and 1sc in each stitch.

Round 27. *miss 1 stitch, sc next stitch. *repeat until no stitches left.

Fasten off and sew all ends through the body, pull tight and cut off so the end disappears inside.

Cut out an elongated semi circle shape in white felt as shown in the photos and sew to the front using blanket stitch or whatever you like the look of. Sew through the body and the corner of the felt piece a few times in yellow, as shown, to create feet.

Use black thread and create French knots for eyes (I couldn’t get them to work so just embroidered little circles but I think the knots would look better if you can do them.)
