    We all love penguins. They are one of the most loved creatures in the world. Could it be because of their ready-to-go outfit? They look like they are ready to classic party any time! Or maybe because of the way they walk? Adorable! Now, when you add a pom pom hat to a little penguin it suddenly changes everything.
    Do you remember Chilly Willy, the funny animal cartoon character? This little crochet penguin with pom pom hat looks exactly like Chilly Willy! Don’t you smile yet?
    This crochet amigurumi pattern is great for an intermediate level, that means you must know the basics of crocheting.
    Note:
    this pattern does not contain basic
    instructions for crocheting and knitting
    techniques or making pompoms.
    Gauge
    The diameter of a 36 sts (starting rnd + 5 rnds) basic
    circle is ca. 5 cm (2”). A small variation in the gauge is
    ok, but if the fabric of your amigurumi is much too
    loose, stuffing it will be difficult (the fabric will pull
    apart and the stuffing will show between the stitches).
    Stitches used
    Single crochet (sc) in a continuous spiral following the
    instructions. Do not join rnds.
    The eye areas are crocheted as treble crochet (tr).
    The toes on the feet are double crochet bobble.
    General instructions
    Unless mentioned otherwise, all pieces are fastened
    off by cutting the yarn and pulling it through the loop.
    Leave a long tail that can be used for sewing the
    pieces together.
    Yarn
    DK weight wool yarn with gauge 20-22sts/10cm(4”),
    eg. Sandnes Smart Superwash, ca. 50g (1 skein)
    black, 50g (1 skein) white and a small amount of
    yellow for the penguin. Ca. 25g (½ skein)
    multicoloured yarn for the bobble hat (you can
    also make it striped or single colored).
    You will need also
    Crochet hook 4mm (or size to obtain gauge)
    Double-pointed knitting needles 4mm
    Tapestry needle
    Polyester fiberfill
    (Plastic granulate pellets)
