One piece penguin pattern

This project is small and quick to make. 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 English terms so look at a conversion chart if you’d like American terms. Lets go!

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

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

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

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

Round 5-14. 1dc in each stitch.

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

Round 16-18. 1dc in each stitch.

STUFF

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

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

Round 21. 1dc in each stitch.

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

Round 23. 1dc in each stitch.

STUFF

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

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

Round 27. *miss 1 stitch, dc 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 actually get them to work so just embroidered little circles but I think the knots would look better.)
