Mobile Bling Penguin

This little penguin pattern is tiny, and designed to dangle from your mobile phone strap -or your cell strap, if you're from the US ;)

Possibly fiddly, but fairly easy to crochet.

{How to view English version of this pattern}


  1. Absolutely adorable! Thank you for sharing the pattern. :)

  2. Just curious....can anyone translate the Japanese into English? I'd never figure this one

  3. Hi Have no idea read the pattern. Anyone have an English version?

  4. Super cute!! thanks for sharinng it. (n_n)

  5. Hi
    Another gorgeous pattern, thank you. This is the best website for Amigurumi, the best on the web. I can't read patterns like the tiny penguin either and would love to understand or know how to translate it. Sharing patterns like this can end up in a tiny cherished gift given to someone else, half way across the world. Thank you!

  6. The pattern's actually not impossible to follow.

    The giant circle at the left is for the head; an X represents one stitch, a V with the point facing inward means put two sc in that stitch, and a V facing outwards is a decrease. The lighter color on the pattern is where you would do the white from the picture.

    The box to the right of the diagram just shows how many stitches you have at the end of each row, and in ( ) is how many you added or subtracted.

    The smaller circle to the right is the body, you join them after.

    The little circle on the left is the arms, you need to make 2.

    The rectangle next to it is the mouth; it isn't worked in continuous spiral. I think it wants ch 3, 1 sc in second from hook, 4 sc total around end of second ch, 3 sc in other ch. Ch1, one sc in each stitch on second row. (This made sense to me, I apologize for confusion.)

    The rightmost circle is the feet, and also isn't in continuous spiral.

    Don't worry too much about the writing and the pictures will get you through it fairly well I think. The table at the beginning is just the colors you need, and you can get that from the pictures, I think. My Japanese isn't good enough to see if the hook size is mentioned, so I guess use whatever fits your yarn.

    (Sorry for the rambling)

    1. I haven't been able to actually open up or see the pattern. Can you post a link in English please?

  7. They are the best ramblings ever! I can now read and understand the pattern, you made it very easy. Thank you!
