Skipper


Cute and Cuddly Boys!

Ok.  I am a HUGE Penguins of Madagascar fan.  These guys I'm doing for me mostly...  I actually purchased the yarn to make all four of them.  This is of course only Skipper,  but the other three will be following in the next couple of weeks.   (Give me at least a week between, maybe more ...  I can't work too much or I'll blow out my wrists again and I don't want to do that)

The pattern might seem a little strange when you first read it through,  but just take it one part at a time.   The beak particularly might give you fits,  but just keep at it... it took me a while to get it too,  but the work is worth it  :D

If you find any problems in the pattern,  or if you just get totally confuzzled,  let me know and I'll do my best to help you out!  

MATERIALS: 

 WW yarn in black and white,  with smaller amount in a medium orange
G Hook
Fiberfill
Sewing thread and needle
15 mm Googly Eyes  (or similar eyes of your choice)

NOTES:

Gauge is not important for this item

Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round or row indicate the total number of stitches that should be in that round or row.

This pattern has some 'different' shaping.  It's helpful if you read through each section before you begin,  to try and get a feel for how the shaping is going to progress.   Remember that most often,  the final shape of the piece won't be noticeable until the stuffing process is done.

HEAD/BODY:

With black:

Rnd 1:  8 sc in magic ring  (8)
Rnd 2:  2 sc in each sc around  (16)
Rnd 3:  sc in next sc,  2 sc in next sc around  (24)
Rnd 4:  sc in each of next 2 sc,  2 sc in next sc around (32)
Rnd 5:  sc in each of next 6 sc,  2 sc in each of the next 4 sc,  sc in each of next 12 sc,  2 sc in each of next 4 sc,  sc in last 6 sc  (40)
Rnd 6:  sc in each sc around  (40)
Rnd 7: Working in Back loops only for this round, sc in each sc around  (40)
Rnd 8:  sc in each sc around  (40)
Rnd 9:  Sc in each of next 9 sc,  2 sc in each of next 2 sc,  sc in each of next 18 sc,  2 sc in each of next 2 sc,  sc in each last 9 sc  (44)
Rnd 10-12:  sc in each sc around  (44)
Rnd 13:  sc in each of the next 10 sc,  2 sc in each of the next 2 sc,  sc in each of the next 20 sc,  2 sc in each of the next 2 sc,  sc in each of the last 10 sc  (48)
Rnd 14-18:  sc in each sc around  (48)
Rnd 19:  sc in each of next 10 sc,  dec over the next 2 sc (repeat decrease one more time),  sc in each of next 20 sc,  dec over next 2 sc,  (repeat decrease once more),  sc in each of last 10 sc  (44)
Rnd 20-21:  sc in each sc around  (44)
If you haven't already begun stuffing ,  this is a good place to start.  Stuff fairly firmly,  but don't overstuff.   Continue to stuff and shape the body as you progress.
Rnd 22:  sc in each of next 9 sc,  dec over next 2 sc (repeat decrease one more time),  sc in each of next 18 sc,  dec over next 2 sc, (decrease one more time),  sc in each of last 9 sc  (40)
Rnd 23-32:  sc in each sc around  (40)
Rnd 33:  sc in each of next 9 sc,  dec over next 2 sc,  sc in each of next 18 sc,  dec over next 2 sc, sc in each of last 9 sc  (38)
Rnd 34-39:  sc in each sc around  (38)
Rnd 40:  dec over next 2 sc around  (19)
Rnd 41:  dec over next 2 sc around,  sc in last sc  (10)
F/O.  Add any stuffing needed to finalize shaping.  (Top of Skipper's head should be 'flat',  resembling a military style haircut)  Weave tail through last round of crochet,  pull to close opening.  Secure and weave in end.

WHITE FRONT SECTION:

Using white:

Rnd 1-8:  Same as for body 
Rnd 9:  sc in each sc around  (40)

Row 31:  2 sc in the first sc,  sc in each sc across to the last sc,  2 sc in last sc  (16)
Row 32:  sc in each sc across (16)
Row 33: 2 sc in the first sc,  sc in each sc across to the last sc,  2 sc in last sc   (18)

Row 35: Chain 2, 2 dc in same stitch as turning.  hdc in next sc,  sc across to last 2 sc.  Hdc in next to last sc,  3 dc in last sc.
F/O.  Weave in end.


Attach yarn to center of back of the piece  (the last 'round' before beginning working in rows).   Chain 1 and sc in same stitch as joining.  Sc evenly around piece to 'top' corner.  3 sc in corner,  sc in next 2 sc.  Chain 2,  2 dc in same sc,   hdc in next sc,  sc in each sc across to last 5 sc.  Hdc in next sc,  2 dc in next sc, chain 2,  sc in each sc to corner,  3 sc in corner stitch.  Continue to sc around the edge evenly.  Slip stitch to first sc.
F/O. Weave in end.

WINGS (make 2):

Row 1:  Chain 6,  sc in second chain from hook and each chain across, turn  (5)
Row 2-4:  sc in each sc across, turn  (5)
Row 5:  2 sc in first sc,  sc in next 3 sc,  2 sc in last sc, turn  (7)

Row 22:  sc in each sc across, turn  (6)
Repeat rows 21 and 22 until 3 sc remain in row
Dec over the 3 sc (1 sc left)
F/O.  Weave in ends.

FEET (make 4):

Using orange/yellow:

Rnd 1:  6 sc in magic ring  (6)
Rnd 2:  2 sc in each sc around (12)
Rnd 3:  * chain 6,  slip stitch in second chain from hook,  sc in next chain, hdc in next chain, dc in next chain, trbl in last chain.  Skip one sc,  slip stitch in next sc * ,  repeat * to * twice more  (for three toes). Secure and F/O  weave in end   

Take two of the 'feet' and place them together, matching up the toes.   Using a long piece of the matching yarn and yarn needle,  whip stitch the two pieces together around the outside edges.   Secure and weave in ends.

LEG (make 2):

Begin with orange/yellow:

Rnd 1:  chain 6,  join to form a 'ring'.  Chain 1 and sc around change to white in last sc,  join to first sc of rnd.
Rnd 2:  Chain 1,  sc in same stitch as joining.  * 2 sc in next sc,  sc in next sc *  repeat from * to * around to beginning,  join to first sc with slip stitch.
Rnd 3:  Chain 1, sc in same sc as joining.  * 2 sc in next sc,  sc in next sc  *   repeat from * to * around .   F/O and secure tail,  weave in end.  
(when working the leg,  you may have an 'odd' stitch left over in a round... this is ok,  just sc in that stitch and join to begin next round)

Sew the 'leg' portion to foot as shown  (orange section of leg is connected to 'foot')   

BEAK:

The instructions for the beak may seem confusing at first,  the increases are different than the 'standards'  because you're expanding the sides drastically, while keeping the top/bottom portions relatively even.  This will create a 'curve' shape and then on the last round,  you have to add the 'smile'  (or side portions of the beak).   If you get confused,  just take it one round at a time...  it may take you a few tries to get it right  (it did me too).  It does work,  it just might take a little practice to get it right.  I recommend working a little tight on the beak  if you normally crochet loosely.

Rnd 1:  4 sc in magic ring (4)
Rnd 2:  sc in first sc,  2 sc in next sc,  sc in next sc,  2 sc in last sc  (6)
Rnd 3:  sc in each of the next 2 sc,  2 DC in the next sc,   sc in each of the next 2 sc,  2 DC in the last sc  (8)
Rnd 4:  sc in each of the next 3 sc,  2 DC in the next sc,  sc in each of the next 3 sc,  2 DC in the last sc  (10)
Rnd 5:  sc in each of the next 4 sc,  in the next sc work the following [hdc, dc, hdc],  sc in each of the next 4 sc,  in the next sc work [hdc, dc, hdc]  (14)
Rnd 6:  sc in each of the next 5 sc,  in the next sc,  work [hdc, dc, hdc],  sc in each of the next 6 sc,  in the next sc work [hdc, dc, hdc],  sc in last sc  (18)
Rnd 7: sc in each of next 7 sc,  chain 5,  slip stitch in second chain from hook, sc in next chain, hdc in next chain, dc in next chain, skip one stitch, slip stitch in next stitch,  sc in each of next 7 stitches,   chain 5,  slip stitch in second chain from hook, sc in next chain, hdc in next chain, dc in next chain, skip one stitch, slip stitch in last stitch,  slip stitch to join to first stitch of round.
F/O,  weave in end.

FINAL ASSEMBLY:

I recommend that you pin the pieces together before sewing anything,  to ensure that you're happy with the placement before making anything permanent.  The beak will need to be 'shaped'  as you pin...  by creating the 'scoops'  along the top of the beak,  and a slight 'smile' to the side portions as you pin.  Fiddle around with it till you're pleased with the overall look.

The white portion of the body fits over the bottom end of the black portion (the 'bowl' end of the white section should fit snugly over the bottom of the body portion).     The 'front' is stretched upwards towards the top of the head  (as shown).

The wings are placed on either side,   the sloped side of the wing faces to the back of the penguin,  with the flat end  attached to the body.  You can position the 'wings' in whatever position you prefer once they're attached to the body.

The feet/legs are sewn to the bottom,  with the feet pointing slightly outwards.  the legs should be fairly firmly stuffed ...  and if the stuffing seems to want to 'ooze' out while you're sewing the legs on,  just tuck it in as you go around.

For the Tail,  I just added a few satin stitches to the back side to give the illusion of a slightly pointed tail.  I used the same black yarn as for the body,  with a yarn needle.  

The beak is positioned as shown,  and sewn carefully to the white portion of the 'face'.  You'll need to 'create'  the scooped nose as you sew  (as you had pinned it on earlier).   I didn't find a need for any stuffing in the beak,  but if it helps you create the bridge of the 'nose' portion between the eyes,  then that's ok too.

The eyes are glued on fairly close to the point of the bridge of the 'beak'.   I used a simple glue stick at first,  just to temporarily place them until I was happy with them... then I used a permanent glue to adhere them after I had sewn all the other parts in place.

The 'brow' portion of the face is made by chaining 10 or 12  (depending on your tension),  and then slip stitch back across the chain.   Sew the brow into place as shown  (or to create the expression you like best)

Your penguin is just lovely, you are so talented! :D

River Glorious said...

How are your wrists?

WolfDreamer said...

They're doing ok, but I have to be careful. I have to limit how much I crochet at a sitting - taking plenty of breaks and just generally taking it easy on them. If I try to do too much they let me know real quick LOL

Thanks for asking! :D

Vampier Keelr said...

I dont actually like the show but i love the movies. My favorite penguin is the one, oh i forget his name. Not kowalski, not rico, obviously not skipper, but the other _really_ friendly one.

WolfDreamer said...

That would be Private. He's the adorable one :D

I can't say that I have a 'favorite' of them, I just adore them all LOL

carlaevelien said...

This is soooo cool! I love crocheting and every time I watch cartoons with our sons, in my head I'm 'designing' the characters. I had a hard time figuring out how to make a pinguin of Madagascar, however. Just a pinguin is easy enough, but it's the special shape that makes it a M.pinguin. Thank you so much for sharing your pattern!

I also love your minion, I designed my own but I had trouble with the glasses. The ones on your minion look perfect.

You are very talented! I LOVE your patterns! My boyfriend his brother are pokemon nerds lol! So i make them as much pokemon as i can but i was just wondering if it was possible by any chance if you could make like a baby pluto pattern? Pluto the dog lol!

carlaevelien said...

I started this pattern and so far I finished the body and the white front. But I wonder why I should stuff the white front? After row 21, you state: "If you haven't already begun stuffing , this is a good place to start". But since it is only a front, flat thing, there is nothing to stuff?
By the way, I started the bottom in white, and from row 9 I used the back loops for black and when I finished the black part I took off where I left with white at row 9. That is just because I'm a very lazy crocheter ;).

WolfDreamer said...

The stuffing instructions were supposed to be in the section of the body, not the white front. I moved them where they belonged :D

Thanks for the heads up on the editing boo-boo LOL

carlaevelien said...

And I finished Skipper! Let me see if I can post a picture here.... nope, doesn't work :(. You can see the picture by clicking on my name (probably) or else, here's the link: http://carlaevelien.blogspot.com/2011/07/pinguins-van-madagascar.html.

After I made the picture I lowered the eyebrows a bit in the middle, on comments from our son (10 years old).

Thank you again for sharing the pattern!

WolfDreamer said...

I'll be honest. Cars/Cars2 and all the characters associated with them are copyright Disney/Pixar.

I don't touch anything remotely related to Disney. They are militant about copyright laws and don't hesitate to go after people. Even their OWN paid animators aren't allowed to use the artwork that they do every day for any uses outside of those authorized by Disney.

Not that I don't love Cars (Mater is my hero! LOL) but I won't touch those with a ten foot tow chain! :D

Ok. thats too bad...you are so good at this. It would be nice to see how it had turn out. But who knos...you might have been chrochet one before..?? LOL
Anyway....I´m gonna do TMNT... all of them...my son adore them.
Hmm....how about My Little Pony?, Star wars? Or maybe Pippi Longstocking? Do you know her?

OMG OMG OMG. This is awesome! :DDD Sorry to bother you, but have you ever heard of a nintendo charater called Isaac? me and my friend both think hes awesome. And we were wondering if you could make a plush of him as an adult. I hope it's not too much to ask :D

JemKem said...

SO BRILLIANT! :D I love them all. Hehe I just started to laugh by the thougt of you making the "blasting mad pinguin" (Rico??) with a dynamite in his wing lool

Hi, I'm Curi. said...

I just found this pattern from Ravelry and it is FANTASTIC! I can't wait to make one - my little cousins will go insane over him!
Please make a Rico as he's their favorite ^_^

Private: Skipper, what's in the sack?
Skipper: Laundry. Why? What's wrong with a penguin and his sack of laundry?
Private: Well nothing, except we don't wear clothes.
Skipper: Well yeah, they're dirty.

Jenna Q. said...

Wow. So cool. I am still pretty new, but I am going to give this a shot! Thanks!

Vanessa S. said...

I am a little confused on round 7 in the head/body. When you work in the back does that mean that you chain and go back the way you were coming?

WolfDreamer said...

For that round, you work in the Back Loops of your stitches... here a video tutorial on how to do that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_6-YsCBH3M

You then will be working through both loops again starting on the next round.

Vanessa S. said...

Um.. I watched the video and realized that that is what I've been doing for a single crochet. I have already completed 3 amigurumis doing this single crochet. If I don't do rnd 7 in the Back, will it effect the look of the Skipper(and the other 3)?

Amanda said...

Thank you for this! My son is a huge Penguin fan, and you just made Christmas for him! Your instructions were spot on, and easy to follow, the only difference is, you never said to attach at the ends of rounds, but I did anyway. I'm quite jealous of your talent. I've designed patterns before, but nothing this intensive! You rock! (:

WolfDreamer said...

I generally don't give instructions to join rounds (unless it's absolutely critical to do so). Most crocheters today are not familiar with joining rounds, they prefer to use the 'continuous round' method.

In general, it's not important to the piece if you join rounds or not, so I leave it up to the crafter which method they're most comfortable with. I do instruct to join rounds if it's important to the piece. :D

Krys said...

Hello Im fan of penguins I love skipper and private.
Im trying to make this doll but I have a question . I done the head and body but the rows 1-20 are they form the head or the body?

Help me please

WolfDreamer said...

The doll begins at the bottom, so the first rounds are the 'body' :D

Krys said...

oh thank you so much :) but now I have a problem with the brow I made the edging but the brow doesnt look like in the picture :(

Samantha said...

Skipper is so lovely I'm a big fan of penguins of madagascar serie. I would like to make the otter, Marlenne, I love the otter.

Mikey said...

Hi, this pattern (and the other penguins as well) look great, perfect for crocheting a penguin for my friend who is expecting a kid in January.
She asked me if I could crochet a penguin for the little one, that should be born in january 2013..
So I might even have time to do them all!

So I was wondering, how many skeins of white and black do you need approximately for one penguin?

Thanks,
Mieke (pandameisje on ravelry, will send you a message there as well)

K F Catz said...

My white section didn't turn out like it's pictured here, even though I followed the directions word for word. The brow is flat instead of furrowed, or dipped in the middle. Is there a fix for this?

Unknown said...

Hallo! I tried with this lovely penguin, but I've a problem with wings: they are really long! If I sew them to the "shoulders" then the "hands" lies on the floor and as I pin the hands on the sides, the loops are too big, about twice the picture shows. What's wrong in my Skipper? Can you please help me?

Callie said...

Thank you thank you THANK YOU for posting these! My mom recently bought "Dr. Blowhole Returns" for the PS3, and that's how I was introduced to the POM series. Immediately fell in love with the Penguins (especially Kowalski as we have similar jobs and personalities :) ) and immediately wanted to make a set of Penguins. I am so, so, very happy to have found these. Thanks again!

Hi,

Thank you for all your free patterns!
I've tried contacting you through your Ravelry-account, but I never received a reply, so I decided to try through your personal blog.

On my blog, I sometimes offer Dutch translations of patterns to my reader. Recently I received a request for a translation of this Skipper pattern. I know you state that you do not want someone redistributing your patterns, which is why I want to ask you if you would allow me to make a Dutch translation of your pattern to post on my website? You can find other translations I made here: http://charami.com/vertaalde-patronen/

Thanks in advance.

This row was a little tricky, but in reality, row 35 only has around 16 sc .
the "Chain 2, 2 Dc in same stich as turning " and the "Hdc in next to last sc, 3 Dc in last sc " are meant to be part of the edging to the left and right of Skipers' eyes. Sorry it's a year late but just in case you didn't figure it out! :)
