An original crochet amigurumi penguin pattern from the Fuzzy Friends collection by June Gilbank.
Yarn: worsted weight yarn for beak and feet and an eyelash yarn. The specific yarns I used have probably been discontinued since I designed these patterns in 2007-8, but these patterns are very versatile and you can substitute many different yarns with great results:
Bonus Information Guide: All Fuzzy Friends patterns include an additional PDF instruction file called About Fuzzy Patterns. This 4-page reference guide is crammed full of information, tips, and examples for choosing and using both eyelash and fluffy/fuzzy yarns, how to substitute any regular yarn of your choice, and how to brush smooth pieces with a wire brush to give a fluffy result.
Hook: US G / 4mm and US H / 5mm
Size: Finished size will vary depending on yarn used; sample penguin is 9″ tall
Eye size: 12mm
Note: Take advantage of the savings when you buy any three Fuzzy Friends patterns of your choice as a custom set!
