Little penguin Pip is here to welcome the first snow! Emperor penguins chicks have got to be the fluffiest and cutest of all penguins, with a soft fluffy grey body that's just asking for a cuddle - but got to catch (or crochet) one first! 

The instructions are written in US crochet terms, with step by step photos detailing how to make the pieces and finish the toy. The body is made in chunky chenille-type fluffy yarn with a 4.5mm hook, with the DK-weight cotton details added over the top. 

Made in matching yarn and hook the finished penguin will measure about 28cm/11 inch tall. Check that the yardage of your yarn is close to the one listed below for best results.
