Pattern: How to crochet a No-sew Penguin?


Let’s start – No-sew Crochet Penguin

 

The body – No-sew Crochet Penguin

  • The Penguin is worked in continuous rounds (as a spiral). Use a stitch marker if needed.
  • Remember to stuff as you crochet.

With a 2.75 mm crochet and black yarn.

    • Round 1: start 6 sc in a magic ring. (6)
    • Round 2: [6 inc]. (12)
    • Round 3: [1 inc in the next st, 1 sc]x6. (18)
    • Rounds 4-6: [1 sc in all st]. (18)
    • Round 7: [1 sc in the next 3 st, working in the back loop only (BLO): 1 sc in the next 2 st; now working in both loops: 1 sc in the next 8 st, working in the back loop only (BLO): 1 sc in the next 2 st; now working in both loops: 1 sc in the next 3 st] . (18)

The front loops left unworked will be used to attach the wings to the body.

  • Rounds 8-10: [1 sc in all st]. (18)

Place the eyes between Rounds 8 and 9, spaced by 2 st. Make sure the eyes are centered and at an equal distance from the unworked front loops of Round 6 (see pictures below).

I chose to work on the facial details before completing the body since I find it more convenient that way. Alternatively, you can opt to finish and close the body before moving on to the face.

With your tapestry needle, make the side of the eyes with 2 strands of white pearl cotton.

With your tapestry needle and 2 strands of orange yarn, make a little beak between rounds 7 and 8.

Keep working on the body:

  • Round 11: [1 dec, 1 sc] x6. (12)

Fill the body with polyfill.

  • Round 12: [6 dec]. (6)

Cut the yarn, close the body, and fasten off.


The wings – No-sew Crochet Penguin

  • The wings are worked in rows

The wings are attached to the body by 2 stitches of the unworked front loops of Round 6.

The right wing (on the left when facing the Penguin):

  • Row 1: join the black yarn on the second to last front loop stitch. Make 1 ch in the same stitch where you joined, and 1 ch in the next front loop stitch. (2)
  • Row 2: ch1, turn: 2 sc. (2)
  • Row 3: ch1, turn: 1 dec. (1)

Cut the yarn, and fasten off.

The left wing (on the right when facing the Penguin):

  • Row 1: join the brown yarn on the last front loop stitch. Make 1 ch in the same stitch where you joined, and 1 ch in the next front loop stitch. (2)
  • Row 2: ch1, turn: 2 sc. (2)
  • Row 3: ch1, turn: 1 dec. (1)

Cut the yarn, and fasten off.

Sorry I forgot to take a picture but it works exactly like the Turkey.


The white belly – No-sew Crochet Penguin

  • The belly is facultative.
  • You can use either 1 strand of chunky yarn or 2 strands of light worsted yarn.

With your tapestry needle and the white yarn, cover: 2 stitches between Rounds 3 and 4 in the center of the body, 4 stitches between Rounds 4 and 5, 4 stitches between Rounds 5 and 6.

Cut the yarn, and fasten off.


Congratulations on crafting the cutest penguin amigurumi! I’m looking forward to seeing your wonderful creations.
