Crochet Baby Penguin Pattern

The beauty of this crochet penguin lies in its lovely simplicity. Crochet penguins capture the essence of these beloved creatures through yarn and hook and add to any kid toy collection. This soft, handmade penguin will also bring a unique sensory pleasure, different from the touch of manufactured toys.


Here’s a guide on how to execute each of the crochet techniques, essential for working penguin amigurumi and many other crochet projects:

  • MR (Magic Ring)
  1. Start by making a loop with your yarn, leaving a tail of a few inches hanging down.
  2. Insert your hook into the loop, yarn over (yo), and pull through to create your first chain (ch). This doesn’t count as a stitch; it’s just to secure the ring.
  3. Proceed to make the required number of single crochets (sc) into
  4. the ring. Hold the tail along the edge of the ring as you work to weave it in.
  5. Once all sc is completed, pull the tail to close the ring tightly. Join with a slip stitch to the first SC if required by your pattern.
  • Dec (Invisible Decrease)
  1. Insert the hook into the front loop only (FLO) of the next stitch (do not yarn over).
  2. Without yarning over, insert the hook into the front loop only of the following stitch (two stitches partially on the hook).
  3. Yarn over and pull through the first two loops on the hook (two loops left on the hook).
  4. Yarn over again and pull through the remaining two loops to complete the decrease.
