Penguin clock

penguin clock 2

I thought I’d spruce up a clock I bought from Daiso by making it look like a penguin 🙂 I used black, white and yellow 8 ply wool and a 4 mm hook. This pattern is written in American crochet notation.

Body

With black wool

Round 1: chain 80, slip stitch in the first chain to form a ring

(to customise this pattern for your own clock crochet a chain ring the same size as the circumference of the dial)

Round 2: sc in the first 11 stitches, increase in the next stitch – repeat

(to customise this pattern you can determine the number of sc stitches between each increase by roughly following this guide (I don’t think it really matters if you are one or two stitches off – in retrospect I didn’t exactly follow this guide)

Number of stitches in Round 1 chain ring Number of sc stitches between increases
24 3
30 4
36 5
42 6
48 7
54 8
60 9
66 10
72 11
78 12
84 13
90 14
96 15
102 16

As you can see, if the number of chains in the ring is x and the number of sc stitches between increases is y, the equation is

 y = (x ÷ 6) – 1

If you get a decimal, round down to the nearest whole number.

Maths isn’t my strong point but I think this is about right. Of course the beauty of crochet is that mistakes can easily be fixed. As always, try something and if it doesn’t quite work unravel it, adjust it and try again.

Then just increase the number of sc stitches between each increase by one for each subsequent round. Keep going like this until your doughnut shape is a bit larger then the clock face, then decrease as per the pattern.

Round 3: sc in the first 12 stitches, increase in the next stitch – repeat

Round 4: sc in the first 13 stitches, increase in the next stitch – repeat

Round 5: sc in the first 14 stitches, increase in the next stitch – repeat

Round 6: sc in the first 15 stitches, increase in the next stitch – repeat

Round 7: sc in the first 16 stitches, increase in the next stitch – repeat

Round 8: sc in the first 17 stitches, increase in the next stitch – repeat

Round 9: sc in the first 18 stitches, increase in the next stitch – repeat

Round 10: sc in the first 19 stitches, increase in the next stitch – repeat

Round 11: decrease two stitches together – repeat

Round 12: decrease two stitches together – repeat

Fasten off, weave in end.

Cut a length of black wool and weave it through the inner edge of the ring around the dial – pull it tight, fasten off, weave in ends (this will stop your crochet drifting away from the dial)

Row 3: increase in the first stitch, sc in the next stitch, increase in the last stitch (5 stitches)

Row 4: sc in each stitch (5 stitches)

Feet (make two)

With yellow wool

First we need to make three toes.

Round 1: 6sc in a magic ring (6 stitches)

Round 2: increase in every stitch (12 stitches)

Rounds 3 – 5: sc in each stitch (12 stitches)

Fasten off for the first and second toes. Don’t fasten off when you finish the third toe because we will launch straight into round 6.

Once you have followed the instructions for rounds 1 – 5 three times and have three toes we need to join them together.

Round 6: (decrease two stitches together) x 3 on the first toe, (decrease two stitches together) x 3 on the second toe, (decrease two stitches together) x 6 on the third toe, (decrease two stitches together) x 3 on the second toe, (decrease two stitches together) x 3 on the first toe (18 stitches)

Round 6: sc in the first stitch, increase in the next stitch – repeat (18 stitches)

Round 7: sc in each stitch (18 stitches)

Stuff

Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.

 

Assembly

Sew the white patches to the underside of the wings. Sew the wings, head and feet to the body. Sew the beak and googly eyes to the head.

To stop the head flopping forward tie some wool to the back of the head and sew it to the back of the body. Make sure the wool is tightened so there is not enough slack for the head to fall forward. Alternatively you could try using something stiff, like a pen, to keep the head and body in line.

  20. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to
    your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  21. Great post. I was checking constantly this blog and I’m impressed!
    Extremely useful info specifically the last part 🙂 I care
    for such information much. I was looking for
    this particular info for a long time. Thank you and best of luck.

  22. Hi to every body, it’s my first go to see of this website; this webpage carries remarkable
    and truly good stuff designed for visitors.

  23. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe
    you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  24. I must thank you for the efforts you’ve put in penning
    this website. I’m hoping to see the same high-grade content
    by you later on as well. In fact, your creative writing abilities
    has motivated me to get my very own website now 😉

  25. Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was
    wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  26. Very efficiently written article. It will be supportive to anybody who employess it, including yours truly :). Keep up the good work – looking forward to more posts.

  27. Я больше 3-х часов лазил в интернете сегодня и
    не мог найти ни одной познавательной статьи, как эта.
    Лично я считаю, если бы все копирайтеры
    так красиво делали контент, как вы интернет стал бы намного лучше.
