Tutorial to crochet a cute amigurumi baby penguin with soft cotton and chenille yarn.

Useful information before starting

  • Working time: about 7 hours
  • Skill Level: 🌸🌸 intermediate

A sweet baby penguin couldn’t miss in my collection of amigurumi animal.

The penguin’s body is worked in one piece and separately I crocheted the feet, wings and beak.

The final size of the penguin is 14 cm tall.

I worked two different kind of yarn together and in different color to recreate the particulary color of the penguin’s fur.

You are not obliged to work with the same yarn or color, you can work only one kind of yarn, without changing the proportions, but only the size.
